The Florida premiere of M*A*S*H writer Larry Gelbart’s “Better Late” (March 13-21), directed by Carolyn Michel, is a romantic comedy with a twist. This December-December-December triangle begins with Nora (Nellie O’Brien) and her easy-going second husband Lee (Don Walker) who have been married for 20 years. When Nora asks if they can take in her acerbic ex-husband Julian (Lee Gundersheimer) for a few weeks while he is recovering from a stroke, the roller coaster of fun and fireworks begins. Family and relationship dynamics are further tested when Julian and Nora’s son Billy (Alex Teicheira) reveals that he is going through a divorce. What should have been a short, sweet visit becomes a test of wills and patience as Julian’s orchestrated relapses prolong his stay from weeks to months. The question is, will the best man win? And who is the best man anyway?
