REVIEW: ‘Knickerbocker’ talks about fatherhood

REVIEW: ‘Knickerbocker’ talks about fatherhood

Jonathan Marc Sherman’s conversation piece chats away in a restaurant setting

BY MICHAEL SOMMERS

OFF BROADWAY REVIEW

Opening on Thursday at the Public Theater, “Knickerbocker” presents a series of conversations between people seated on a banquette at a nice Manhattan restaurant that visually suggests the actual Knickerbocker’s steakhouse located at Ninth Street and University Place.

Jonathan Marc Sherman’s latest work turns out to be not so much a play as a chain of two-character scenes addressing a particular subject — in this case, one man’s impending fatherhood.

Jerry (Alexander Chaplin) is a boyish, bookish New Yorker anxiously facing up to becoming a daddy at age 40 by talking about its ramifications to everybody in his life: His wife (Mia Barron), who is calm about the process; his best friend (Ben Shenkman), who is commonsensical; his former girlfriend (Christina Kirk), who is wry; his other best friend (Zak Orth), who is freaked; and finally, his father (Bob Dishy), who is, well, his father.
