I Ought to be in Pictures
In one of Neil Simon’s lesser-known comedies, daughter Libby arrives unexpectedly looking for the father who left her family 16 years before. Father Herb is a writer and Libby wants him to use his nonexistent connections to get her into the movies. Excellent acting, particularly by Kate Brugger as Libby, makes this a superb production.
