Best Surprise 

Sleeping With Jenni by Natalie Liccardello, InTENsity

Produced by Frank Higgins, Joseph Concha and Pete Bakely,
at Fishtank Performance Studio

The event was billed as "ten bitesized plays," an evening of 10-minute one-acts by local playwrights. The short-form script is a tough format — some one-acts feel interminable. (A playwright must accomplish a lot in that abbreviated span, and it's harder than it looks.) But Natalie Liccardello's two-person scenario went by too quickly. Actors Pete Bakely and J. Will Fritz were just two guys arguing over who would sleep with a girl named Jenni. Right? Wrong! A twist halfway through let the audience share a collective "Oh, of course!" The moment brought laughter, proving the performers' full-on ownership of their characters. Actress-writer Liccardello's skillful comedy reached its natural denouement, but we wanted more. Encore!
