The riotous play that the Los Angeles Times recently welcomed as “a guilty pleasure for veterans of the single life” captivates audiences at the intimate Players Theatre with its whip-smart dialogue and candidly reductive appraisal of relationship dynamics. The curtains open on The Pink Dinosaur café, where four couples with various degrees of attachment and attraction wrestle with their feelings for one another and arrive at surprising conclusions. While Arden and Jacqueline’s blown kisses morph into man-eating butterflies, Billy proposes to his girlfriend, Lily. Lily’s best friend, Jean, harbors a fleeting hope that the engagement news will turn the tide in her own abusive marriage, and Jean’s brother, Doc, calls it quits with his eccentric girlfriend only to find himself making origami models of her with every napkin in sight. Writers Brad Gottfred and Joanne Mosconi lend their gendered perspectives to a script that strips away societal pretensions and exposes even the most articulate of humans as bumbling fools in the throes of love.
Situated the midst of Greenwich Village, the historic Players Theatre hosts all of the irreverent action in its 248-seat main-stage theater. Patrons can stay late to discuss the play’s outcome over live music or foolishly attempt to use the play’s title as a pickup line in the famous Café Wha?.
