Mud Blue Sky
So much talent and preparation have gone into the B Street Theatre’s production of Mud Blue Sky that it’s a shame it isn’t in service of a better play. While the set design and costumes are excellent, it’s Marisa Wegryn’s play that’s weak. What starts out as a sharp, snarky comedy about a reunion of three flight attendants in a motel room during a layover too soon loses focus. The playwright wants to make a serious comment on these disparate lives, but can’t make it work. Aiming for wistful and maybe hopeful, it just ends up sad..Th, F 8pm, Sa 5pm and 9pm, Su 2pm, W 6:30pm. Through 6/5. $23-$35. B Street Theatre, 2711 B Street; (916) 443-5300; www.bstreettheatre.org.
