The Stones shine in Slowly I Turn 

Zuppa’s one-act, living room production is a charming reflective piece.

The smell of baking bread greets the audience as they enter the eclectically cluttered living room that serves as a stage for Zuppa's latest envelope-pushing production. The show that unfolds there is part exploration of memory, part celebration of life, laughs and family and part thought-provoking meditation on aging and dying. The piece stars Ben Stone and his father John, who offer a window into their touching and sometimes turbulent father-son relationship as they sing, kibbitz, ruminate and remember. They speak candidly about death in a way that is tender and probing rather than morbid. Surprises abound throughout the evening, including a few old vaudevillian chestnuts and the revelation of some magical little worlds behind a velvet curtain. You'll be both moved and entertained by this homey, charming and deceptively simple production.

To March 31, 6267 Duncan Street, Tuesday through Friday at 8pm, Saturdays 2pm and 8pm, or call Zuppa at 489-9872
