Acacia Theatre Company

Shepherd Express: Jacob Marley is “a stellar production”

“Acacia [uses] minimal sets and sparse lighting but an acting ensemble that fills the stage with dramatic tension and spirited emotion…masterful playwriting and well-paced direction by Elaine Wyler…the finest performance of Sapiro’s acting career…Claire Zempel excels…Tim Rebers and Derrion Brown round out the solid ensemble work…’These chains. I deserve them,’ says a dispirited Marley in Act Two, as he realizes the error of his ways. But the only way to ‘break those chains’ is to help others in a time of need. Isn’t that what the spirit of the holiday season is all about?”
