Saw a couple of stage shows this weekend. Neither was very good. Nor was either very bad. Both just so-so.
First up was "Cuttin' Up" Saturday night at the Pasadena Playhouse. It's a collection of characters and tales from African-American urban barbershops, which often act as the center of the communities they serve.
There were some funny lines and the 8 actors did an admirable job of portraying more than 20 characters.
But ultimately it was theatrical cotton candy.
