Judith Scarpone is currently acting in Open Fist Theatre Company’s revival of James Joyce’s The Dead at the Greenway Court Theatre. The musical, based on the short story by Irish author James Joyce, is playing to full houses and critical praise – it received a 100% sweet rating from Bitter Lemons, a website that compiles reviews from multiple outlets and creates an aggregate score.

Scarpone herself was singled out by reviewer Gil Kaan at Culture Spot LA – “The delightful Judith Scarpone has the most fun as the still-vivacious spinster Aunt Kate with her clever asides, fancy footwork and coy flirtations.” The show closes February 22, so get your tickets now.
