Josh and Janet compare
notes on crossword puzzles
in "2 Across," coming up at The
Little Colonel Playhouse. Sean
Childress portrays Josh, while
Kathy Norton portrays Janet.

The story chronicles two strangers, a man and a woman, who board a train at 4:30 a.m. They’re alone in the car, each is married, and both are doing the New York Times crossword. She’s an organized, sensible, psychologist. He’s a free spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits.
When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, “Crosswords are metaphors for life, those who finish, succeed those who don’t, fail.” Now he vows to finish. Why? He’s a competitor and she happens to be lovely.
Their trip is filled with unpredictable but believable surprises, even a passionate kissing embrace or two. At the end of the ride, each of them has been changed for the better.
“A rich theatrical piece... A fascinating 80 minutes in which light banter turns to raw emotion... creates a tone that perfectly underscores both the comic and dramatic elements of this surprisingly memorable play, ‘2 Across’ is a must see play of the year,” wrote the Los Angeles Weekly.
Performances of “2 Across” are scheduled for Feb. 7-9 and Feb. 15-16 at 8 p.m. and at 2:30 p.m. Feb. 10 and Feb. 17. Tickets for all performances can be reserved by calling (502) 588-1557. Adult tickets are $15; senior citizen and student tickets are $12, cash or check only.
For each play presented at Little Colonel, opening night is a dinner theatre performance; the price of the dinner is an additional $18. The theatre opens at 6:45 p.m. on opening night for the Dinner Theatre.
