“Match” at Alliance Repertory

by Stephen Belber

Tobi is a former dancer in his 60s who supports himself as a teacher and choreographer. He lives alone in Inwood (wa-a-ay upper Manhattan for those unfamiliar), where he spends his free time drinking, smoking hash, and knitting beautiful sweaters. One day, he is visited by a young married couple, Lisa and Mike, who have come, they say, to interview him for Lisa's dissertation on American Dance and the American Dance Community in the Late 1950s. During the course of the interview, which coincides with Act One, it is discovered that Lisa and Mike are here for some other purpose than their stated one. As soon as their ulterior motives are revealed, the play's outcome—surprise twists notwithstanding—is never in doubt.
