To the Editor: Netflix can wait 

To the Editor: 

Good news if you’re still looking for that perfect present. Mary Paola gives a bravura performance in “Fully Committed” at the Acadia Repertory Theatre, which winds up a brief holiday run with a matinee on Sunday, Dec. 19. This one act, one-actor show is a tour de force. In constant motion, Paola brings to life at least a dozen different voices and personas over the course of an hour. Her astonishing, shape-shifting performance gives us an actor who, plainly, could hold our attention on any stage. It’s a stroke of luck that her stage this week is right here on MDI.  

In short, Netflix can wait. Anyone with even a passing interest in live theater should drop everything and go. Paola is clearly headed for bigger stages and bigger audiences, but if you act quickly you can catch a brilliant young actor before she lands on Broadway. The tickets are a steal. Go.
