'Waiting for Lefty': Proxy Theatre's revival of Clifford Odets' classic

Periodically, the focus shifts to a back story of economic injustice that brought someone to the meeting and the brink of despair — including a proud husband whose inability to support his wife's expenses diminishes his manhood; a chemist who rejects a lucrative job manufacturing poison gas; a suitor whose meager prospects keep him from marrying the woman he loves. It would not do to single out any one of the nine actors, most of whom play more than one part, in an agile, able cast.

"We got the blues, the 1935 blues," complains Ty Mylnar's Sid. Though the rich still get richer at the expense of the poor, we sing a different sort of blues today. Yet, in its staging, pacing, and passion, this production of Waiting for Lefty, directed by Chelsea Taylor, is striking.
