Miserable with an Ocean View
We close on October 10th!  Don't miss the top best reviewed comedy in Los Angeles.  

KEVIN M. THOMAS la examiner says "sweet"  August 21, 2015
"5 out of 5 stars...  Equally masterful to August: Osage County.  Patty McCormack (the evil child from "The Bad Seed") continues to be the spawn of Satan in this riveting yet riotous tale.  Skora is able to find the absurdity and humor in some of the most shocking situations. His words come to beautiful life with one of the most flawless casts ever to grace the stage in the guise of the three actors who play McCormack's children."

NEAL WEAVER stage raw says "sweet"  July 04, 2015

DON GRIGWARE broadwayworld says "sweet"  June 12, 2015
"Miserable is laugh-out-loud funny with fluid direction from Jim Fall and a marvelous cast headed by Patty McCormack (The Bad Seed, Frost/Nixon)."

CATHY WAYNE noho arts district says "sweet"  June 12, 2015
"It's a dark, funny comedy that will have you laughing your pants off...."

MARY MALLORY tolucan times says "sweet"  June 12, 2015
"An entertaining, take-no-prisoners black comedy, Miserable with an Ocean View combines hilarious one-liners, expressive acting, and excellent timing as it dishes family malfunction and finding oneself.... "

BONNIE PRIEVER la examiner says "sweet"  June 24, 2015
"5 out of 5 stars.  The ensemble and production is well worthy of its sold out crowds and many accolades it is receiving. The play is a fine example of passionate acting at its best...."

LORENZO MARCHESSI the geek authority says "sweet"  June 26, 2015
"A wonderfully brilliant production that is filled with just as much humor as it has true heart.  Very smartly written by Howard Skora.

Synopsis:  Jeff Shapiro has one last thing to do before his wheelchair-bound, Long Island mother from hell (Oscar-nominee Patty McCormack) kicks the bucket and he just can't muster the courage.  But with the help of his squabbling siblings and a talking French clown doll long stashed away in a closet, Jeff just might pull it together in time.  Miserable with an Ocean View is a laugh-out-loud comedy about love, death and taking control of ones life.
