‘Rose’s Dilemma’: Limelight keeps comedy coming

Rosalind Farotte, playing the role of Rose, performs during dress rehearsals for the Limelight Actors Theater production of Rose's Dilema opening Jan. 23.

Neil Simon wrote “Rose’s Dilemma,” a funny comedy that revolves around a has-been writer involved with the ghost of a dead lover from the past. She conjures him up to help with her writing and sex life—and anything else that pleases her. The ghost revolts and we are off on a fun trip, riding along to see how this all ends.
Rosalind Farotte plays Rose with a passionate sensitivity that brings community theatre up a few notches. Simply put, she is believable and really funny.
Tom Hepner plays Walsh, her ghost lover, Dana Morgan plays Arlene, her assistant, and Kevin Heath plays Gavin, a love interest. All deliver well.
Heath also directs the show with an even hand and created a lovely set.
Limelight Actors Theatre brings local arts to enjoyable well-done community theatre. It’s convenient, reasonable and fun. Put “Rose’s Dilemma” on your list for an enjoyable evening.
