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.”
