About the Show
Part of FringeNYC: It might be the end of the world, and three friends gather to say goodbye: to the island that harbored their childhood summers, the traumatic event that's defined their lives, and the magical creatures lurking just beneath the water's surface.
Categories: Drama, Performance Art, Local. Written by Erin Breznitsky. Directed by Emerie Snyder.
"The last three rows lose a great deal of dialogue between the fans and the loud wave noise blasting from back-of-house speakers…Apart from this unfortunate issue, 'Bodies of Water' is a fresh exploration of what it means to be our best selves...Clearly channeling Lanford Wilson more than Hans Christian Andersen, and that ambition cradles Margot’s compelling story...A tighter hand on the reins, and a different venue, will perhaps help 'Bodies of Water' fulfill its great potential."
"The individuals are interesting and their interaction pivotal to the story but the dialogue sometimes lacks the ability to add depth to the characters…In the present state, the playwright Erin Breznitsky needs to tighten the script and trust her characters with some inspired dialogue. It will be interesting to see where this engaging play will surface with a few changes and a clearer look at the message which is floating in cloudy water right now."
