LAST CHANCE for “My So-Called So-Called Life”

That’s right, kiddies, get yr Angela Chase fix before she gets canceled again. Well, that’s not entirely accurate.  What’s actually happening is that a play about a girl who thinks she’s Angela Chase, well in as much as she’s in love with Jared Leto (who in this photo chooses to do the walk of shame sans shoes and shirt), is entering its final weekend.  So, you have four more chances to catch Walden Theatre’s world premiere production of the play My So-Called So-Called Life, by David Largman Murray,  before it exits off the stage at the MEX theater in the Kentucky Center.

Before we get to the particulars, here’s some praise for the show:

The cast, which included Eliot Zellers, Meghan McCabe, Jordan Brown, Jenny Richardson, Callie Trawick and Britt Mahan, acquit themselves admirably, but it is in the two central roles that the production manages to have its strongest impact. Madeline Marchal held the center as the slightly disturbed Angela, confidently playing the unsettling qualities of the character without sacrificing the audience’s sympathy.

Walden Theatre once again provides an opportunity to witness fresh young actors exploring the possibilities of their talent. The spark in Ms. Marchal’s eyes throughout the evening is evidence enough of the potency of this company’s efforts. Her work here was as strong as in any other local production you are likely to witness this season.

Both quotes are from Keith Waits review.

Here are the final days and times for My So-Called So-Called Life:

  • Thursday, January 22 @ 7:30pm
  • Friday, January 23 @ 7:30pm
  • Saturday, January 24 @ 2 pm and 7:30 pm
