This 1996 Tony Award winner is the touching humorous tale of two old men who inhabit a bench in New York’s Central Park. Nat Moyer, a feisty Jewish man, spins tall tales and doesn’t want his daughter dumping him into an old folk’s home, while half-blind, cantankerous African-American Midge Carter, hides from his disgruntled tenants.
I'm not sure what I was expecting when I went to view the show. I can honestly say, though, that I was definitely pulled in. A very simple set that is impressive none the less. The two main characters, played by Kenny Raskin and Rob Cleveland, tell a story that most of us would not want told about society and the way the world treats some of it's seniors. A mostly humorous and still very serious plot, takes us through these two as they meet in the park and exchange stories. Watch them as they tackle some very real troubles and come out the other side. An awesome tale told by some awesome actors. Definitely a must see.
