Regional Reviews: Philadelphia
This Is the Week That Is
Each of the cast members shine in their own moments and there is an amazing energy when Jennifer Childs, Sean Close, Pax Ressler, Jackie Soro, Lexi Thammavong, Brenson Thomas, and Robyn Unger all share the stage. Sean Close is hilarious as the News Anchor, keeping the pace fast and the laughs coming over an impressively long segment. Jennifer Childs is larger than life as both Patsy and Frosty the Snow Man. Brenson Thomas gets an enormous and well-deserved response from the audience as Santa Clause and the world's worst flight attendant. But my very favorite moment may be Lexi Thammavong dancing "The Nutcracker Suite" Philly style. That jawn is awesome.
Legitimately funny political sketch comedy is hard to find, so pick up a ticket and get ready to have a good time.
1812 Productions' This Is The Week That Is runs through December 31, 2022, at Plays and Players Theatre, 1714 Delancey Place, Philadelphia PA. For more information and tickets, visit 1812productions.org.
