    Almost all the female characters in these plays are the same. :-/

    Sam Shepard. Edward Albee. Leonard Melfi. He may not be as famous today as some of his playwright cohorts of yesteryear but Melfi was probably making just as much noise back in the 1960s as part of the birth of off-off-Broadway. This collection of his early one-acts reflects both why he's been forgotten and why he's worth remembering. The plays feel very much of their time yet pulse with the energy of the era. "Halloween" is, for me, the most exciting of the bunch but you can imagine young actors enjoyably chewing up the scenery in "Birdbath" and "Ferryboat," too.
