Just a Matter of Time
"For I'm Time, yes I'm Time!"
"We have buttered minutes you can spread with a knife."
"Your mind has a mind of your own, my dear."
"I once recited on the green,
I had my poet's license."
"With Time gone, nothing's fair anymore."
"My thoughts they overtake me,
They bloom, they surge, they soar."
"Short, quick jabs. Made my head spin. But I kept going. Circling."
From Enid Futterman’s review of Just a Matter of Time in IMBY (In My Back Yard) Nov.16, 2019
. . . .
Just a Matter of Time (I'd lose the acronym) IS original, a wise, witty, LOL-funny, mind-bending take on time and the way we spend it in our own 24/7 time.
. . . .
Stephen Sondheim, a genius lyricist, will tell you that getting even one laugh in a lyric is rare, but Sandra Dutton gets a lot of them, many emanating from me. She also gets my admiration, not only for her deeply clever twists on the language of time, but for her craft as a lyricist. Her lyrics actually scan and rhyme perfectly. No small thing in these, er, times.
. . . .
The house was full last night and was apparently full Thursday night as well. If the rest of the weekend isn’t sold out, go, and take your big kids. It’s a great lesson and a good show that can only get better. “Just a Matter of Time” could and should have a life beyond Bridge Street. It just needs, well, time, and likely, money, to grow into itself.
