But the actors were the best part of the show (as Prospect's audience has come to expect). Brad Heberlee, as Galy Gay, and Dara Seitzman, as the Widow Begbick, stole the show. They had an innate sense of comic timing and a magnetic stage presence.

Charlie Chaplin's influence on Brecht is palpable in the fine physical comedy of Paul Paglia, Mark Mattek and Austin Jones as the three soldiers... and in Dara Seitzman's droll turn as the enterprising Widow Begbick, whose seduction of the tyrannical sergeant Bloody Five (Frank Liotti) is one of the play's standout scenes.
