The show about two couples dealing with hard times features Amy Resnick (Mary), Jeff Garrett (Ben), Luisa Frasconi (Sharon) and Patrick Kelly Jones (Kenny). Resnick is a wonder of neurosis as the barely middle-class wife while Garrett gives her husband Ben a nice mix of enthusiasm and incompetence. Frasconi adds a level of sexual tension as the free-spirited Sharon with Jones bringing a touch of danger to Kenny. The fact that these two couples form an unlikely bond is a testament to D’Amour’s writing and the actors’ talent.

West Jordan, Utah — No longer needed, an oxygen tank sits idle on the living room floor. Nearby is a box of purple bracelets that Charlee Nelson’s family made to raise awareness of Batten Disease and to collect donations to cover the 6-year-old’s medical costs. Across the room, hanging from the stroller Catrina and Jeff Nelson had to buy for their once active, gregarious child is a burial dress. “My [oldest] daughter was recently baptized and we were shopping for her when I saw this and thought, ‘This is the dress we have to get [for Charlee]. It’s the wedding dress she’ll never get to wear,’ ” Catrina said, fingering the white, satin gown.

“You find depth and nuance of character and you get this prolonged experience,” Seiwert said. The Lesher Center and other smaller venues offer audiences a more intimate viewing experience, she said. “It’s a great way to see a repertoire that translates well on a stage like the Lesher Center,” Seiwert said. While Smuin Ballet started out solely as a vehicle to showcase Michael Smuin’s work, the company’s founder, who died in 2007, laid the groundwork for Fushille to foster new creative talent that is both “fearless and collaborative,” she said.
