'Wall' has comic gems...

...The Fourth Wall takes place in the nicely appointed Buffalo, N.Y., living room of long-married Roger and Peggy, realized with Old World flair by Dramaworks' resident scenic designer Michael Amico. If it looks a bit stagy, like the sort of theatrical furnishings conveniently arranged to face out to the audience, that is no coincidence... This is particularly so for Peggy (sublimely agitated Patti Gardner), who senses there is another world out there, just beyond "The Fourth Wall," the invisible divide between the stage and the audience... Roger (silver-haired patrician Peter Thomasson) just wants his domestic status quo reinstated, so he enlists the help of their New York City friend, sexually frisky Julia (ditsy Angie Radosh), and a local community college drama professor Floyd (drolly pedantic Gregg Weiner) in a rescue effort. ...the Dramaworks cast is enjoyable and director J. Barry Lewis has polished them to an apt, arch shine...
