Polished acting, Engaging, Uneven script, Thought-provoking, Dysfunctional family drama

See it if you're interested in eating disorders. "Perfect" Greenwich family has probs. Good (not great) play abt a serious (not earth-sh'tering) issue

Don't see it if you dislike dys family dramas. RR's a serious exploratn (w little humor). Well-crafted w steady build after slow beginning, but plot holes. Read more

Disturbing, Powerful, Thought-provoking, Relevant, Intense

See it if Powerful writing & acting delves into a dysfunctional family suffering from the effects of eating disorders. I learned a lot & was moved.

Don't see it if You are not interested in getting intimate with a sick, disturbed family. There is a little humor, but not much. Slow moving. Brief nudity. Read more

Interesting use of space, Educational, Intense, Thought-provoking, Ambitious

See it if You have an interest in eating disorders in particular or issue centered plays in general.

Don't see it if If anorexia or family disfunction is a triggering issue for you. The 3/4 round staging means you are often peering around an actor’s back.

Thin on insight, Moralizing, Good acting, Relevant, Ambitious

See it if u want to see an ABC Afterschool Special on eating disorders that spends more time on dysfunctional family drama than the affliction at hand

Don't see it if you're looking for a tight, completely-developed script. [This play has a lot of promise, which a good dramaturg could easily flesh out.]

Afterschool special live, Diffuse script, Uneven execution, Important subject

See it if the subject of eating disorders is so important to you that even a mediocre play on the subject would be worth seeing.

Don't see it if you’re looking for a play that has something crisp, acute or insightful to say about the continuing problem of eating disorders in the US. Read more

The New York Times
August 5th, 2019

CRITIC’S PICK "Home Is No Haven in ‘Rinse, Repeat.’ In Domenica Feraud’s potent drama, hard-driving parents don’t recognize the examples they set for a daughter with anorexia."

Theatermania

"'Rinse, Repeat': An Important Story Buried in Hackneyed Theater Tropes. Domenica Feraud's play about eating disorders lacks the substance to sustain it."

“Domenica Feraud's ‘RINSE, REPEAT’ Explores The Cycle of Habits That Trigger Eating Disorders.”

Lighting & Sound America
August 7th, 2019

"A difficult subject, of the sort that requires the most sensitive handling, gets surprisingly lively dramatic treatment by a first-time playwright in 'Rinse, Repeat'…What could have been a clinical exercise or dreary informational pamphlet is a classic-style family drama packed with scenes that percolate with tension."

Talkin' Broadway
July 31st, 2019

"Unfortunately, 'Rinse, Repeat' does not nearly rise to the level of a classic. It is, however, a good play with a fair share of melodramatic reveals, and it is centered on an important issue. In short, this is a Eugene O'Neill family drama presented as a Lifetime Original Movie."

New York Stage Review
July 31st, 2019

★★★ "'Regarding a Family's Cycle of Eating Disorders.' A new play about dangerous eating habits scarcely satisfies as a family drama."

New York Stage Review

★★★ "'The Vicious Circle of Eating Disorders.' Domenica Feraud's ambitious drama ultimately crumbles under the weight of its good intentions."

Theater Pizzazz
August 5th, 2019

"Domenica Feraud has written and plays the main character Rachel in 'Rinse, Repeat' at Signature Theater Center. The story is about eating disorders and family dynamics as the family quibbles with each other on Rachel's test weekend home after spending 4 months at a facility to help rein in the problem...the story needs better focus."
