Settling in for a long run at Street Theatre Company is this remounting of a two-character comedy first produced by STC in 2009. Holly Allen and Cathy Sanborn Street reprise their previously acclaimed performances of a script based on the stand-up comedy of Obie Award winners Kathy Najimy (Sister Act, etc.) and Mo Gaffney (That '70s Show, Mad About You). Throughout the evening, Allen and Street enact some 30 characters — Jersey teenagers, bar flies, older Jewish ladies dabbling in “women’s studies” classes at the local college, an unlikely couple on a date, even celestial beings determining whether man or woman should be the gender choice for the “privilege” of giving birth. There is some feminist rumination here, but it’s leavened with realistic humor. Lauren Shouse, who directed the original local production, returns for a Nashville swan song of sorts, before heading to Chicago for graduate school at Northwestern.
