The Fire Within

"The Fire Within", a biography of Jackie Robinson (2007) busts the generally accepted image of Robinson as the well-mannered, married, conventional Jackie and paints a portrait of an angry man who Brooklyn Dodgers manager Branch Rickey urged to use his fury on the playing field, instead of in responding to his treatment by fans and teammates. This is the template Dan Gutman follows in his children’s book, "Jackie and Me", the basis for Steven Dietz’s play.

Drive, she said: Becky's New Car

I’ll bet this has happened to you. It’s a cold morning, you’re in a hurry, and you put the key in the ignition and it almost turns over, then it dies. You repeat the process over and over with the same result until you give up and call AAA. Well, that’s Becky’s New Car. It has a number of promising starts, but it never quite gets going, despite the best efforts of its talented main cast, including Susie Wall in the title role, and John Contini, Jerry Russo, and Scott McMaster as the men in her life.
