The Vietnamization Of New Jersey

The Alchemy Theatre Company

There is nothing like a Durang. Dishes fly, walls come down and epithets like "tar baby" and "gook" roll off the tongue with ease in this wacky, surreal world that Durang has created (decades before Southpark). And this 30 year old satire about middle class American sensibility and wartime imperialism could not be any more relevant. This spirited Alchemy production cannonballed into this play with hilarious effect. Cast standouts Corey Sullivan as the blind soldier turned peacenik Buddhist and Michael Cyril Creighton as the priest with questionable sexuality were pretty effin hysterical. HGA!
