Theatre Southwest presents "Critics Choice" by Ira Levin
, directed by Malinda L. Beck
ham, running February 22-March 16, 2013. BroadwayWorld has a first look at the show in the photos below!
This bright and witty comedy tells the story of theater critic Parker Ballantine whose second wife, Angela, writes a play which is produced on Broadway. The play is awful and Parker must decide whether or not to review the play honestly. Add an opinionated Mother (in law), a precocious child, an ex-wife, and a gregarious director and the result is classic comedy!

antine, Sammi Sicinski
as Essie, Rhett Martinez as Dion Kapakos, Cheryl Tanner as Charlotte Orr
, John Mitsakis as Parker Ballantine and Courtney McManus as Angela Ballantine.
