The Postman Rings 

Wednesday, Jan 23 2013

A longtime affiliation with PianoFight — home to Forking!, the holiday-baiting, choose-your-own-ending theater adventure, and Duck Lake, the world’s last comedic horror-ballet — leads one to expect a certain kind of amusement from the producers of Made in China. But Sir Windsorbach Productions set out to marry “quirkiness and sophistication.” If the songs from Made in China are any indication, they may have achieved it — certainly, there’s more than a little Bacharach-inspired refinement lazing between smiles in this story. Writer/producer Nicholas Weinbach plays a wide-eyed postman who discovers the girl of his dreams (played by the buxom Marisa Gregory) when he attempts to deliver a package to a house that cannot exist. Backed by a live six-piece chamber orchestra conducted by his twin brother, Weinbach and his impossible paramour wind their way through the house, discovering games, toys, and a cast of clever beatnik dolls who prove that childlike enchantment can take us down the road of self-discovery. Which might not be entirely to the liking of a phantasmagoric girlfriend, but it’s bound to be funny.
Fridays, Saturdays, 8 p.m. Starts: Feb. 1. Continues through Feb. 23, 2013
