Many twenty-somethings struggle with the reality of post college life. As student loans become due, these alumni sit stunted. “What do I really want to be?” Is the big question looking for resolution. Never is the answer “a widow.” Collaboraction Theatre presents the Chicago premiere of Be A Good Little Widow. Melody is a new bride. She has followed her husband from Colorado back to his Connecticut hometown. He’s a high power corporate attorney with a heavy duty travel schedule. She is a ditzy, unemployed couch potato. When fatality strikes, Melody must cope. She can turn to her controlling, manipulative mother-in-law or her husband’s adorable, young assistant. What’s a widow to do? Be A Good Little Widow grieves for lost potential. Read the rest of my review at Chicago Theater Beat.
