I could tell you, as I did last week, that "The Recommendation" explores issues of race, class, and privilege in crackling dialogue and terrific performances. Or, I could tell you that the totally buff, all male cast spends half the play bare chested wrapped only in towels. Which would get you to the The Old Globe faster? I won't judge if it's the towel business. Seriously, I won't.
If it is all the pecs that have piqued your interest, check out this Old Globe produced slide show. It doesn't capture the ambition of this world premiere play by an up-and-coming playwright, but it certainly sells the sizzle.
"The Recommendation" runs now through February 26 at The Old Globe. For more information, visit www.theoldglobe.org.
