"It's rarely easy when a couple breaks up. But in Jacquelyn Priskorn's Glass Slipper, Size 8 12, Ella (Joanna Bronson) copes by creating an imaginary, fairy-tale-like world in which the romance is still alive with her former lover Matt (Andrew Neil), who attends her needs as a Prince Charming-like stud. Reality intrudes, however, when roommate Sherilyn (Sarah Oravetz) returns home and insists the two of them go out together and hunt some real men to play with that evening. Will that help Ella get over Matt? And how will dream-world Matt feel about it? With limited space and an even more limited budget, director Terie Spencer shows true imagination and creativity with this cute little production. The show's opening in dream land is nicely executed - kudos to assistants Cierra Anthony and Maggie Smith for their work at various points throughout the show - and all three principles are relatable throughout. (Many appreciative murmurs were heard throughout the mostly female audience on opening night when Neil entered a scene shirtless - and with good reason.) This was my favorite of the four shows on opening night - and with some tightening of the line delivery in a few spots and maybe a slightly more romanticized Matt in yet another, this could be a likely contender for the best show of the festival."
