2 Across

2 Across


CVRep's last main stage production this season is 2 Across by Jerry Mayer.

Two strangers board a San Francisco BART train at 4:30 a.m. They’re alone in the car, each is married, both are doing the New York Times crossword. She’s an organized, sensible psychologist. He’s a free-spirited, unemployed ad exec. She is a crossword pro, he always quits. When he tosses his puzzle away, she snaps, “Crosswords are a metaphor for life, those who finish, succeed, those who don’t, fail.” This starts an eighty-minute ride described by critics as “Hilarious,” “Witty,” “Romantic,” “Poignant,” and “Wonderfully entertaining.” Two opposites in an enclosed space, attacking each other’s values but also being swayed and intrigued by them. As the train ride ends, it’s obvious each of them has been changed for the better.

Saturdays have both a 2:00 PM and a 7:30 PM Curtain.

Sundays are matinees at 2:00 PM

There are shows on Tuesday May 8th and 15th at 7:30 PM at CV Rep
