Crawford as "John & Jen"
It's not often staged, but it's respected in theater circles for its warmth and intelligence. A New York critic called it "the little show that packs a big punch."
Besides, just about everything that freeFALL does is interesting. In just a few years of existence, freeFALL has developed to the point where it rivals American Stage as the best theater company in St. Petersburg and maybe even in the Tampa Bay area,
"John & Jen" runs May 3-26. Show times: 7 p.m. Thursdays, 8 p.m. Fridays, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturdays, 2 p.m. Sundays. Tickets: $39. freeFall is at 6099 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. Information: 727-498-5205 or www.freefalltheatre.com.
