The Phoenix Theatre, which is so great it draws audiences from north of Everett and as far south as Olympia (plus its loyal Edmonds' clique) is THE most professional community theatre specializing in all-laughter, all-the-time. "I'm Herbert and other short plays" was no exception. One comedic actor after another crossed the boards and strutted their stuff last night as "Overtones" highlighted the polished talent of Susan Connors; joined by Jeannine Early, Megan McKay and Debra Rich as the "unseen alter-egos" tell us like-it-is when two rivals for the same lover meet over lunch -- one struggling, one a socialite -- honesty was NEVER so funny -- or cutting!

In the second of the playbill specials, Debra Rich is joined by Steve Heiret. This is the first time that I have seen Heiret have this much "air time". As a befuddled, stumbling young groom in the repressed 30's Heiret mugs, eye-rolls, pleads, beseeches and cajoles his overly-sensitive bride into good humor. A marriage never unraveled as quickly as theirs and Heiret's character is hanging on to the coattails of his huffy wife in a scene those who have been married know all too well. Watch Heiret. His return to the theatre in the past year is significant! Those who follow Puget Sound theatre most recently saw him in "Becky's New Car" as the sad sack used car salesman (he wears it oh! So! well. Funny guy -- really funny.

Simply put? I like Michael G. McFadden -- his appeal? He's earnest, his skill at delivering lines in rapid fire medley, keeping pace with talented stage veteran, Melanie Calderwood is worth the price of admission. Everyone was laughing as the curtain closed on last night's performance.

The Phoenix Theatre is set in an unlikely location -- Firdale Village -- a VERY convenient straight-shot (no right-hand turns, no left-hand turns) off Hwy 104; branch to 244th St./205th St. You're there! Easy-peasy by GPS.
