The play Is held in the ballroom and the audience is seated at tables. The atmosphere is informal, and the evening is as comfortable as a dinner party. As for the play, it is a breezy comedy about a blind musician who has a possessive mother and a kooky neighbor. Don't be put off by the light approach to Icing blind, the play also makes a point. The audience can get an insight into how someone with a handicap learns to cope with, unwanted sympathy and adjust to other people's hang ups. The production is admirably cast. Michael Woods does a fine job as the blind musician, Don Eaker. His interpretation of the 'on of a shy, dependent boy who is trying to grow op. Ann Kibitteski is the cool, almost aloof matron from Scarsdale, Don's mother. Joe Kibitleski plays Ralph Austin, a Broadway producer. The central character in the I play is Jill, the flippant next dcor neighbor who breaks into Don 's shell of self-pity. She is [played by Kitty Cannon, and it is Kitty who steals the show. She is a lovable goof who quotes authors she never heard of and eats everything in the refriger* afor and can't zip her zippers. Jill always says the wrong thing bat when the time is right, such as the showdown between Jill and Mrs. Baker, she makes her point. The production Is directed by James Calderone.
