Becky's New Car is a "new" romantic comedy that Market House Theatre Executive Director Michael Cochran describes as funny, then touching, then profound. He speaks with Kate Lochte on Sounds Good about the story of a middle-aged woman who takes a look at her life and wonders "Is this all there is?" Cochran also previews the 1920s-themed Valentine's Day Masquerade Ball and how to get VIP tickets.
Becky's New Car
Becky's New Car runs this Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7:30; Saturday and Sunday at 2:30. The cast describes the show as not so much acting, but snapshots of real life. Becky's been married for 28 years, her grad-school son lives in her basement and she wonders if she wants something more. The moments of quiet in her house had always been cherished, but now they feel lonely. She's offered an alternate life and takes the path. This leads to a story of ups and downs that are both funny and profound. Michael Cochran says this is a play both men and women of a certain age can relate to and might find themselves in the characters.
