5 Snouts Up for Someone to Watch Over Me at Capital Stage Closing this Week

(:)(:)(:)(:)(:) A combination of homework and computer problems has conspired to keep me from raving sooner about this amazing play in its last week at the Capital Stage.

This is the best production of any play that I have seen at Capital Stage and the best production I have seen at any professional theater company in Sacramento.

Dark but hilarious, political but completely personal, brilliantly written, staged and performed. Director Stephanie Gularte has won my respect. Run don't walk to see it.
