Review by Rose Desena

 

The last time I saw a play with two men on stage just talking it was in NYC and the play was Steady Rain. I was not only blown away by sheer strength, I was now convinced that simple rocks. “Years To The Day” is just that, two men on stage at a single table swigging from takeout coffee cups and talking. Their conversation like the one in Steady Rain was very powerful and lulled the audience into a trance-like state.  Jeff (Jeff LeBeau) and Dan (Michael Yavnieli) command your attention and keep you captive with their well-trained voices.

The writer Allen Barton used a true personal experience to create this story of two old friends who get together after four years to catch up. Now in their mid-forties both men are living the adversities of getting older, dealing with family, health, personal growth and finally becoming their own person. A lot of the dialog was very relevant, good political references and situations any adult age group could easily relate to.

 

Heart warming, funny, very well directed with brilliant acting, this is good theater.
