theatre review AUGUST:OSAGE COUNTY, Mesa Encore Theatre, January 30

Christi Sweeney,Shari Watts and Brenda Jean Foley
"In 2008 August: Osage County won the Pulitzer Prize for Drama and the Tony Award for Best Play. It is the story of one of the most highly dysfunctional families you'll ever meet as well as a terrific black comedy with scenes of intense drama. The show is currently receiving an impressive production, with a very capable cast, from the Mesa Encore Theatre that runs through February 9th.

August: Osage County is a riveting black comedy and the Mesa Encore Theatre production has a perfect cast with great direction and is recommended for anyone who prefers an intense drama that is both funny and sad. While I don't think anyone would actually want to be a member of the Weston household, visiting them for a few hours is highly recommended."

August: Osage County runs at Mesa Encore Theatre through February 9th with performances at the Mesa Arts Center at 1 East Main Street in Mesa. Tickets can be ordered by calling (480) 644-6500 or at mesaencoretheatre.com.
