4-STAR RATING By LA TIMES Readers
"...slickly written, directed, and acted... crowd-pleasers..." -Backstage
"This is a stylishly staged 85-minute frolic featuring accomplished onstage and behind-the-scenes talents....Noted actor James Eckhouse's slick direction keeps the pace brisk and the laughs flowing" -Les Spindle, INLA Magazine
“James Eckhouse’s staging…vigorous and fast-paced…Klinger offers a funny turn as the harpy-like actress, complete with Mrs. Roper–style house-dress, while Mara’s dithery vegan is both daffy and vulnerable.” - LA WEEKLY
"A very funny and original comedy. The cast couldn't be better! ..a chance to see one of the best (and best known) casts in town..." - StageSceneLA says "WOW!"
"I loved this play, In Heat! The cast was excellent!" --Arsenio Hall (on The Tim Conway, Jr Radio Show)
"The writing is top-notch." --Fred Willard

"All of the actor’s were right on... genuine and funny performances! I say go check it out." -LACityZine
"In Heat , a world premiere, is not only a comedy in four one-acts, written by Malcolm Danare...but it is also a philosophical play that reflects life in Los Angeles and makes you ponder. I highly recommend this play! The overall cast of the play is AMAZING!" - SoCal.com

One town. (That would be Los Angeles.) One night. One heat wave. In Heat, is a world premiere comedy in four one-acts, in which King Lear, Freddie Mercury, 12-step programs, and West Side Story abound as these eight diverse, charming, somehwhat insane characters (you know, friends like yours) navigate their respective evenings. An intimate snapshot of four couples captured over the course of one hot summer evening in Los Angeles. By the end of the fourth act, the lives of all the characters intersect on Sunset Blvd. in an impromptu memorial service to honor a very special friend--culminating in a slightly absurdist, hilarious, and ulitmately touching grand finale.
