Watching two people fall in love has never been more charming or comical.
The Herberger Theater Center opened its new season with “Chapter Two,” a play written by Neil Simon about his second wife, Martha Mason. Mason herself serves as the director for this performance.
After the recent death of his beloved wife of twelve years, George Schneider (David Mason) shrinks at the idea of dating again. After his well-meaning but bumptious brother, Leo (Ben Huber), sets him up with three girls who wear electric dresses, smuggle TNT across borders, and bear the name Bambi, respectively, the flame of romance in his heart has all but fizzled out. He doesn’t want to call any of the girls Leo tries to set him up with, despite Leo’s pleas that the final girl he’s found is the one for George.
