Becca and Howie Corbett have everything a family could want, until a life-shattering accident turns their world upside down and leaves the couple drifting perilously apart. 'Rabbit Hole' is the story of the journey they are forced to embark upon in their bittersweet search for comfort in the darkest of places, and for a path that will lead them back into the light of day.
"What is not said is communicated through gestures interruptions and outbursts delivered with flawless execution. The acting, staging and production are top rate. The cast is multicultural and this reflects the commitment of Full Spectrum Theatre Company and its founding members Suzie Cho and Ashley Ford to be inclusive in all productions. This is serious theater at its best: engaging, intelligent, exhilarating and satisfying." Full Review
"Full Spectrum Theatre Company is now uniquely and very effectively reviving this Pulitzer Prize-winning drama...Multiracial or 'colorblind' casting has been a controversial issue in the theater. The relative universality of 'Rabbit Hole' lends itself to such an approach and is an ideal selection. Nothing comes across as a gimmick or strains credibility. The expert ensemble and skilled direction of this production successfully prove the worthiness of exploring this belief." Full Review
"There were a few idiosyncrasies that of course are unavoidable when diverse players are following a script, originally written for a monochromatic cast, to the letter. However these blips were minuscule, skillfully obscured by the talented cast...Overall I found 'Rabbit Hole' to be a triumph in forwarding true diversity instead of the tokenism and pigeon-holed roles which are so often assigned to actors of color."

See it if you want a beautifully written, wonderfully acted masterpiece. Its heartbreaking and naturalistic, funny at appropriate times. Go see it.
Don't see it if you want a short show, this dragged on a little bit too long. you don't like naturalism. you want a show with happy subject matter.
See it if you appreciate solid production value, you like David Lindsay-Abaire, you are a sucker for tear-jerkers and amazing writing
Don't see it if you can't tolerate some poor casting choices and a lack of chemistry between the actors
See it if you are a fan of great drama. It's a real show, hitting some real nerves. A great tight piece of theatre.
Don't see it if you're not in to depressing shows. There's hope in the script, but there's a lot of rough patches that play with your emotions.
