"Twenty Five" may seem like just another one of those series but the trailer for the project reveals that it could stand out from the rest as a funny and original spin on the classic "friends finding themselves in the big city" plot.
From creator Josh Duboff, "Twenty Five" tells the story of three high school friends who reconnect in New York after graduating college two years earlier. Each friend is suffering through his or her own personal crisis, whether it's professional or romantic (including Jimmy, played by Brennan Caldwell, who struggles to connect with [Callaghan] another guy in the city's gay scene).
The web series was a Kickstarter "Staff Pick," and was named as a Project of the Week on Indiewire. The first four episodes are set to premiere in October. In the meantime check out the trailer above!

Writer Josh Duboff has unveiled the trailer for his new web series, Twenty Five, about three high school friends reconnecting in New York City just two years out of college. Funded through Kickstarter and named a Staff Pick, the web series was also chosen as a Project of the Week by IndieWire. Four fifteen minute episodes are slated to launch in October.
Check out the charming and amusing trailer, in which one character, Jimmy, confronted with someone who's never seen Breaking Bad [Callaghan], asks the question so often asked of Breaking Bad virgins, "What do you do at night?!"

Two extended comic scenes carry this "Midsummer Night" to dawn. The first is a vaudevillian, gymnastic display of physical comedy in which Demetrius (Drew Cortese) and Lysander (Leigh Miller) are mis-potioned into pursuing poor, abused Helena (Allison Pistorius). Among a dozen bits of keystone comedy, one that stands out has the confounded Hermia (Caitlin Wise) trying to leap into Lysander's unwelcoming
And later, there's the laugh-out-loud performance of a play by Peter Quince (Sam Gregory) and his hapless band of actors. In it, Bottom (Larry Hecht) and Flute (Chad Callaghan) riotously play fated lovers Pryamus and Thisbe.
The Rep's "Sense And Sensibility" is Graceful, Charming And Relevant.
The cast is a strong ensemble but there were several performances that bear spotlighting. Nancy Lemenager and Amelia McClain lead the ensemble as the Dashwood sisters, Elinor and Marianne, one “sense” the other “sensibility” or the romanticism that was becoming fashionable in poetry and literature at the turn of that century. Lemenager is particularly strong in a scene with Colonel Brandon (Alex Podulke) when she discovers her sister’s beau, Willoughby, has a tendency toward deceit. (Charles Andrew Callaghan plays Willoughby with passion and rakish appeal.) Lemenager and Poldulke are earnest in the scene and the audience, as well as Elinor, warm considerably to the Colonel’s rather reserved personality. McClain’s Marianne travels a credible path from flighty chit to a woman of “sense” and substance.

The acting is uniformly fine...
Just to single out a couple of the performances I found most memorable: Lemenager is the perfect Elinor, still unmarried in her twenties but practical by nature, until the right one comes along; and Callaghan is a superior cad. The crowd on opening night demonstrated the kind of interest a play like this generates in our community, and it’s always good to see a packed house. This is not the kind of piece that is likely to send audiences out to debate the issues it raises, but it should cushion their ride home and will not disturb their good night’s sleep.
