Mr. Mastrosimone makes her a deeply sympathetic if somewhat deluded character. Greatly aided here by the winning performance of Christina Bennett Lind, his Judy is looking to Frank, then to Jack and finally to Sam not for cash or diamond-studded baubles — though she gets both — but for love.

For Jack’s friend Frank Sinatra (Paul Anthony Stewart), the answer is acting as an intermediary with mob boss Sam (Jordan Lage) to secure the union vote to make a Catholic Kennedy’s run for the White House possible and sending ex-girlfriend Judy (Christina Bennett Lind) over to help sex-addicted Jack with his needs. Judy’s service to her country includes getting into bed with all three men.
Lind does a nice job of toggling between a woman driven by her emotions, a woman attracted by power, and a woman trying to survive.

Political intrigue is the order of business in Long Wharf Theatre’s production of Ride the Tiger, by William Mastrosimone, directed by Artistic Director Gordon Edelstein.
The play will take place from March 27, 2013 through April 21, 2013 on The Claire Tow Stage in the C. Newton Schenck III Mainstage. Tickets are $40-$70.
The press opening is Wednesday, April 3 at 7:30 p.m.
The cast includes John Cunningham (Joe), Jordan Lage (Sam), Christina Bennett Lind (Judy), Douglas Sills (Jack), and Paul Anthony Stewart (Frank). The creative team is comprised of Eugene Lee (sets), Jess Goldstein (costumes), Tyler Micoleau (lights), Ryan Rumery (sound), and Sven Ortel (projections.) Lisa Ann Chernoff is the stage manager.
What happens when Jack, a charismatic young senator from Massachusetts, a Chicago mob boss, and Frank, a crooning movie star, all get involved with the same woman? A presidency. During the 1960 presidential campaign Jack becomes smitten with Judy, a ravishing young woman with connections. As Judy goes back and forth between these powerful men, political intrigue mounts as forces move behind the scenes to claim the highest office in the land. A fascinating drama about power and honor, Ride the Tiger is the newest from William Mastrosimone, best known for the Off-Broadway hit and subsequent major film Extremities. “Bill Mastrosimone has written a political thriller based on real life events,” Edelstein said. “There are consequences for the decisions one makes of questionable moral nature.”

Souza has also made great efforts to show the nuances of a blind person’s challenges, and Bennett Lind has achieved great realism in her portrayal. She never forgets to feel her way up and down a staircase, or count her steps from the table to the couch. Her detailed facial expressions easily mark her attention to her character’s four remaining senses. The character’s handicap becomes an absorbing challenge for the audience, as they attempt to deduce what she is hearing and thinking about the illicit actions surrounding her.

Three cheers for the small but ambitious One Year Lease Theater Company for bringing this terrific 2006 play to local shores, in a vividly acted production at the 9th Space, staged by the company’s artistic director, Ianthe Demos, with a considerable assist from the choreographer Natalie Lomonte and input from the five-member cast.
The dynamic performance brings energy and animation to a text written as a sort of collective monologue, recounting events mostly in the past tense. (None of the play’s living characters are named.) The five first-rate young actors — Estelle Bajou, Christopher Baker, Nick Flint, Christina Bennett Lind and Richard Saudek — move between the first person plural and singular as they recall their evolving relationship with a friend whom they alternately profess to “adore” and furtively criticize.
