.....go to Natalie Menna and Brad Fryman, playing the hateful couple "celebrating" their 25th Anniversary in August Strindberg Repertory Theatre's production of Dance of Death, Parts One and Two.

Portraying the retired military man with disgruntled crustiness and the actress who gave up her career to marry him with underplayed coldness, it may not be completely appropriate to say they have great "chemistry" onstage, but their fierce depiction of unbearable dissatisfaction makes them sure candidates for stage couple of the year.

You can catch them in translator/director Robert Greer's small scale production at Theater for the New City through March 13th. Tickets are only $18. $12 for seniors and students.
