IN MEMORIAM: BOB FUCALORO
Sam Greene, a review of The Hollow
The play centers on the life, romances and ultimate murder of beloved Doctor James Crisow. But the good doctor, as portrayed by Andy Eliot, may not be the pillar of society he seems. Just ask his two mistresses and his long suffering wife. One mistress is a successful sculptress, Henrietta Angkateel (Haley Palmaer), who hides a deep emotional sensitivity behind her steely resolve. The second is a Hollywood bombshell, Veronica Crave (Mary Ashlyn Moore). She’s a glamorous but spoiled starlet who may do anything to get her way. Then, there’s the doctor’s wife, Gerda, who appears dim-witted and blindly loyal to her philandering spouse. A nuanced performance by Danielle Herren reveals she might be a lot brighter than she lets on.
Adding to the mix are an eccentric pair of aristocrats, Sir Henry and Lady Angkatell, as well-played by a duo of Heights Players veterans – John Edward Kelly and Elizabeth Bove. Joining them are a young relative Midge (Marcy Agreen), who harbors a secret love; the Angkatell’s timid nephew, Edward (David Mackler), who hides an intense and unrequited passion; and two servants (Alix Gordon and Joe Pepe) who may know more than they pretend to know. Finally, there are the stalwart and intrepid Scotland Yard inspectors (Raymond O. Wagner and Stephen Zuccaro), who are brought in to solve this perplexing case of passion and murder.
And the Murderer Is…
Did the butler do it? Well, you’re just going to have to see for yourself aren’t you? And when you do in addition to great performances, you’ll be treated to terrific sets (Gary Vanderputten, Paul Kiem), lighting (Ben Bauer) and costumes (L.J. Kleeman).
In a nutshell…besides being a compelling and well-mounted mystery, this play reaches a level of dramatic integrity that won’t leave you “hollow.”
