Eli Wallach and Anne Jackson starred on Broadway in these hysterically funny one acts. A Need for Brussel Sprouts finds a middle aged actor hoping to land a TV commercial for pizza by playing opera full blast in his apartment while pretending to be the tenor. Enter the irate lady cop who lives upstairs and intends to give him a summons for disturbing the peace. They are both lonely and one thing leads to another. In A Need for Less Expertise, a couple whose marriage is on the rocks after 26 years have procured a self help audio tape designed to improve their spiritual awareness, their health and their sex life as a last ditch effort to save their marriage.
