    Subject: Long live Carl the Second
    Date: Dec 24, 2001
    Sender: PhyllisPrevious

    I had no idea what this play was about when I showed up to support one of the actors. Imagine my surprise and delight when I spent the entire evening wrapped up in the characters, cheering Carl on and hoping upon hope that he would end up as Carl the First, for once in his life. Each and every role was a "plum" and everyone of the actors was excellent, Mark Palmieri was mesmerizing throughout, Jeremy Johnson gave his usual high class performance, and the brother had me in stitches.

    The play's message was so clear that it was not lost inside the excellent performances.

    I have recommended it to all of my friends and acquaintences, the Firsts and the Seconds,
    and hope that this show is either extended or makes it farther uptown. Send everyone you know! Carry the message!
