Cherry Lane Theatre kicks off its 2015-16 season with the Off-Broadway debut of 'Catch the Butcher,' a dark comedy about a woman who sets off to find a serial killer - and love. More…
A serial killer dubbed "The Butcher" has been terrorizing several towns in Texas, having killed eleven women before dropping their remains in the river with a poem attached. While most women are in fear for their lives, Nancy is instead curious. This causes her to search out "The Butcher" and when she finds herself in his basement, she likes it.
See it if you want a show with a lot of tension and a bit of mystery.
Don't see it if you want to feel connected to characters that have a dark side. I was expecting to really see some deep character analysis; I didn't.
See it if This show popped up in my list of shows I saw this year. Holy cow it was nuts. Which is great. More theater should take as many risks
Don't see it if If you like safe theater.
See it if Before seeing this show this past October I actually saw a reading of this thing at a theater in Newark. I loved it both times.
Don't see it if You can't. It's closed.
See it if I cringed the first three scenes because I thought it was going to be something dark and predictable. I was pleasantly proven wrong.
Don't see it if You don't like a small off Broadway show. I'd say this was more off-off, but still good.
See it if I saw this show when it was running at Cherry Lane. The actors were amazing. Story was strange at times but stayed with me.
Don't see it if Closed so you can't see it any more. Hopefully it gets remounted.
See it if I really liked this show. At moments it made me feel uncomfortable but that was kind of the point.
Don't see it if You don't care for theatre that challenges the way you look at the world.
