About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Art reflects life and life reflects art. Radical English author D.H. Lawrence struggles with tumultuous relationships and his obstacle-ridden career. Entirely adapted from his actual text, the line is blurred between fiction and reality.

Disappointing, Intelligent, Slow, Intense, Original

See it if You care, deeply, for DH Lawrence. I thought Himself & Nora was much better at this kind of show.

Don't see it if You want melodic music.

Ambitious, Confusing, Great writing, Intelligent, Great singing

See it if You love beautiful music. You are a fan of DH Lawrence.

Don't see it if You want memorable music you can sing as you exit the theatre. You want something light. You want fancy sets and dancing.

August 15th, 2016

“Music is rich and opulent...Unfortunately, the piece suffers from a lack of cohesion; at times it feels like a set of loosely connected songs instead of a full story. While the songs themselves are beautiful, the plot is not entirely made clear, and often the supporting characters are not identified. Julia Gannon does a good job directing her actors, but the piece itself feels bare and unfinished, as if another act is missing.”

"Despite the show’s one-act structure, its aimlessness made it feel interminable... Lowy’s compositions were much more admirable on an intellectual level, and failed to connect in any emotional sense, the whole show felt like a dissertation in which he was trying to prove he knew how to achieve dissonance. In fact he does, not only on a composition scale, but also by neglecting the humanism that made Lawrence’s work so compelling, and choosing to concentrate only on its sensationalism."
