‘Same Time Next Year’ remains fresh and funny
PORTLAND PRESS HERALD
By Mary Snell
"Two favorite actors, Stephen Underwood and Lee K. Paige, shine in this Good Theater production, deftly directed by guest artist William Steele. This is a well-paced evening of good solid acting. You’re gonna love it." "Paige is fabulous in this role, making slight changes of voice, of gesture and gait, of facial expression and attitude, as Doris becomes more educated and independent." "George’s changes are less noticeable until the end. Underwood utilizes his comedic timing to great effect, yet also manages a serious side that he rarely shows. In the last scene when George walks out the door, Underwood’s face shows true devastation – it’s one of his most genuine moments."
"Paige and Underwood are both excellent laugh-line deliverers, and alternate in the role of straight man to the other's funny man."
"Good Theater's Steve Underwood and Lee K. Paige are outstanding in their portrayal of these two characters. William Steele, a University of Southern Maine drama professor, is Good Theater's guest director, and he encourages finely nuanced and convincing performances from both."
