Women Behind BarsA cast of 10 brings director Wade Hair’s production to loud life, and I do mean loud thanks to the endless yelling and blowing of prison whistles intended to bring the female inmates into line. Speaking of female inmates, the play mixes actors' genders to nice comical effect, with three of the seven jailed women played by women and the rest by men. In fact, it’s BeeJay Aubertin-Clinton as Ada and Nate Elliott as Guadalupe who are the funniest, though the latter is underused. And among the actresses, Allie Novell shines as Mary-Eleanor, an innocent prison newbie whose plight is the play’s main focus.
