DC Metro Theatre Arts: What We’re Up Against

Theresa Rebeck’s sharp-knuckled comedy, What We’re Up Against, received its regional premiere at Keegan Theatre this week, and the laughs abound. … Director Susan Marie Rhea does an excellent job orchestrating the pace and the humor. And her top-notch cast of Peter Finnegan (Stu), Michael Innocenti (Ben), Brianna Letourneau (Eliza), Carolyn Kashner (Janice), and Stephen Russell Murray (Weber) makes every moment more fun than the one before it.

Rebeck’s comedy, full of incisive dialogue and well structured scenes, doesn’t lie still long enough to be questioned.
