Sarah Shaefer’s play GIN BABY is about a woman on a downward spiral because of her alcoholism and psychiatric disorder.
I felt like I was watching a Lifetime movie. There were too many scenes between the lead actress and social worker that it felt so tedious watching it. I kept on thinking, we got it, now what? And at the end, there was really no resolution. I don’t say that every play should have a resolution but it felt unfinished. There was no emotional arc throughout the play.
Lesley Shires as Amelia the lead actress is very pretty but was shouting at all times. I’m amazed Daniel Talbott the director did not tell her that if she started screaming early on, there’s no more ceiling to
go up higher, emotionally. Her acting became a one note even though her character continued to unravel til the end of the play .
The two male actors had minor roles unfortunately. Chris Stack from the soap ONE LIFE TO LIVE , still is very handsome and he showed his delicious butt as he fucked Shires. This was the only redeeming factor for me. At least I got to see Chris ‘ ass ha ha. Maxwell Hamilton as the fiancée also showed us his smooth ass. However both of them kept their shirts on.
NUDITY RATING: 2 ( both actors showed their nice ass as they fuck the lead actress)
