Seascape, lacks none of Albee's incive observation and wit. Nevertheless, the play, for which Albee won a Pulitzer Prize in 1975 carries a message that's almost upbeat. It exhorts its audience to seize the day, even if you're in the sunset of your life. Dramaworks cast delivers such carefully crafted lines with admirable naturalness. But the situation is, of course, weird. That's the fun of it. Deftly guided by director William Hayes, the performers don't miss a beat. Erin Amico's costumes - a cross between Halloween gear and animated film characters - are works of art. Set designer Michael Amico's transformation of the theater into a seashore, with surf paintings by Cindi Taylor on three walls, makes it seem as though we're watching the action unfold from a nearby beach blanket. Strong, relevant and entertaining. Seascape is as good as it gets in local theater.
