Bohemian Theatre Ensemble delivers an intimate, earnest, plainspoken rendition of N. Richard Nash's 1954 comedy about an "old maid" named Lizzie who finds self-confidence through her encounter with charismatic, crooked drifter Bill Starbuck. Promising to bring rain to Lizzie's drought-stricken farm, Starbuck ends up quenching her emotional thirst. Set in the Depression-era West, the play is replete with dated sexual attitudes, but its underlying theme—the need for faith in oneself and others—is universal. Anna Hammonds is a feisty yet vulnerable Lizzie in Stephen Genovese's staging, but Matthew Keffer is a little lightweight as Starbuck. Nate Santana's energized portrayal of Lizzie's hot-blooded younger brother marks him as a young actor to watch. —Albert Williams
