Eve Plumb, a.k.a. Jan Brady, shines Off Broadway in 'Miss Abigail's Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage'

Well, sorta—the actress who played everybody’s favorite middle child, Eve Plumb, last night opened the silly and sweet new Off Broadway production Miss Abigail’s Guide to Dating, Mating, and Marriage. The play was written by Ken Davenport and Sarah Saltzberg, the clever minds behind Altar Boyz and 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, respectively. The show is super fun and, at less than 90 minutes, the perfect romp for an evening out with friends. Plumb (pictured here with costar Manuel Herrera, who plays her lusty assistant), plays “a retro relationship maven doling out advice about how to improve your love life,” as I write in my A– review. The best part of Plumb’s performance? Her spot-on delivery. Plumb serves up  old-school bon mots on relationships “with deft timing, a wink, and a nudge,” making Miss Abigail’s Guide totally “worth following.”

    I think it is sad about Mel Gibson. He was power house in Hollywood and around the world. So how did he end up where he is. He was threatened not to continue with the Passion of the Christ. He did it anyway. Then look at the things that started happening to him. I don’t say that everything that has happened to him is because of the Passion of Christ.However it is a big part. When Hollywood is done with you. You had better get out of the way. Plus Mel seems to have a short fuse. Is it because of the pressure he has been under?

    This review does not surprise me. Of all the actors playing the brady kids, she struck me as being the best and most serious about a career

    Ah. She has come so far since her days as a teenage runaway.

    Good for Eve. She was the only Brady actor who actually showed some talent even if she got ridiculed for not wanting to participate in overhyped Brady reunion shows. Glad to see her earning raves on the stage while her old tv colleagues ‘Marcia’ and ‘Peter” stooped to ridiculous reality shows for exposure.
