DAILY REPUBLIC - Fairfield,CA Dec 12,2012
“When Irish Eyes are Flirting” by Joe Starzyk was directed by award-winning local icon Harry Diavatis and was absolutely hysterical. It was about an older Irish man played by Daryl Roberts teaching a younger wingman, played by Erik Donovan, his secrets to attracting women. Alexandra Leonardo and June Alane Reif also shone as the targets of their affections

I do want to point out one of the plays, “When Irish Eyes are Flirting,” written by Joe Starzyk and directed by Harry Diavatis. We were able to vote for our favorites that night, and this play was mine. The director is a friend of mine, and has also done acting around the Bay Area.

Daryl Roberts was one of the stars of this comedy, and I believe Daryl can do no wrong. He is able to take any role and do it justice. He was so funny and he brightens up any stage. I think he could go to Hollywood and light up that mecca.

Instant Harmony by Joe Starzyk tackles the subject of computer dating services. Starzyk knows how to set up a joke and make it pay off, with an unexpected and hilarious ending. Bob Maddox plays Chris, and his buddy Joe (Howard Block) persuades him to try the service; both Maddox and Block have great timing. Chris meets his date at a restaurant, where we encounter Jean (Todd Thigpen) in a subtle and intelligent performance, an unnamed woman (Terry Smith), attractive and persuasive, and the waitress (Tausheli McClure), beautiful but overacting her bi-polar attitude toward customers. The show is deftly directed by Jay Menchaca, but he might want to rethink here, as the joke itself is so lucid it needs no selling. Theatre Southwest wisely closes the evening with this comedic triumph.

Ah, nuptials: Modern playwrights continue to exploit the three-ring circus of matrimonial union for humor. Joe Starzyk’s relatively new comedy “Wedding Secrets” measures up to the best of them. The production runs through Oct. 6 at West Coast Players Theatre
