A cross between a chamber drama and a screwball comedy

If you’ve got 30 seconds of free time, head over to Isthmus’s website and read my first crack at theater criticism, a review of Edward J. Moore’s “The Sea Horse,” which is being put on by the Madison Theatre Guild at the Bartell Theatre (on E. Mifflin St., just around the corner from the Old-Fashioned) through May 29th.

In a nutshell, I thought that the scale of “The Sea Horse” was admirable, its action more or less compelling and its acting consistently engaging; but I think that the play would’ve benefited greatly if its material had been a whole lot cruder. Theatrically-inclined Madisonians are advised to head over to the Bartell and check it out.
