Lucky Spot, The

Professional reviews

"In a full-cast performance of this diverting story of pathos and humor, itÕs Christmas Eve 1934 on a Louisiana bayou, and the perennial Depression-era favorite ÒWeÕre in the MoneyÓ is playing on the radio. That only makes sense. Reed Hooker doesnÕt have a dime, and he owes $300. Cassidy Smith, 15 years old and pregnant, doesnÕt have a dime, and Reed wonÕt marry her. And ReedÕs wife, Sue Jack Hooker, who has just gotten out of prison, doesnÕt have a dime either. Creating the sound and feel of a 1930s dance hall, the cast, all sporting good-humored Southern accents, will make the listener truly believe that ReedÕs crazy scheme of starting a taxi-dancing emporium (at five cents a dance) will make all their dreams come true. Good fun. B.P. © AudioFile 2014, Portland, Maine"
