His cast is superlative, a group of actors that, like a solid sports team, move in unison and unite for the game, while showing their distinctive characters individually. It shows the struggle of academics, sports, and life during high school while playing a sport.
I really liked how the play included the pressure of being scouted for college teams, and facing challenges in school while still playing the sport. The Wolves was originally produced Off-Broadway last year, and a new production opens at Lincoln Center next month.
A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, and a Drama Desk winner, the play will also be produced at several regional theatres nationwide this season. DeLappe has written a team character study, where as a group, the team moves towards victory, but individually, in their pre-game warm-ups, we see a group of young women jockey for position, assert their power, display their insecurities, behave with extraordinary depth and conviction, and turn on a dime into vulnerable young women, or mean girls.

Such was the style of pop music journalism! All of this popularity engendered by Geoff Jacobs was met with some disdain from other more seasoned Wolverhampton pop groups who felt that The Wolves had come from nowhere and leap-frogged over them in the success stakes. One music press review reported Bobby Holt's vocal performance on the recording as Could this have been yet another Geoff Jacobs ploy?What we did last night was prove that if you do things differently then as independent theatre producer you can make money. What we did was start an Indy theatre revolution. You might not feel it .
