About the Show

Nodding to Queen Bey but based on the Anton Chekhov story 'The Fiancée,' 'The Beyoncé' is a sharp and deeply personal coming-of-age conundrum produced by Adjusted Realists.

See it if You remember how it felt to be young and everyone told you how your life was going to turn out or perhaps more importantly...if you don’t.

Don't see it if If you don’t like sweet, sentimental stories. This ones a little bit quirky. Starts off a little slow but I thought it WELL worth the wait.

See it if If your a fan of Chekhov work with a twist. A nice way to bring forth his writings. Well thought out.

Don't see it if If you nothing about the writer or if new works are not for you.

“Bent makes Nadia’s evaluation of traditional marriage and self expression interesting...Bent’s ability to use Chekhov as a springboard shines in her selection of sociological themes and her cadence...Bent is less successful with the Beyoncé portion of the equation...'The Beyoncé’ is as pleasant a diversion as an afternoon in the countryside. While it does not bang open any doors, it does successfully explore what gentle circumstances can constitute a small-scale bold move.”

"Kaliski kept this show real, even though it is written at times in the first person as the actors state what they are thinking...The design team did wonders in this small space...Bent’s work has a cadence that makes you think and ponder the balance between self and selfish. I have thought a lot about this subject since seeing this play. If you get a chance, go check out this profound piece of work."

"Likely to excite fans of both Chekhov and intimate theater...The story is not one of love forlorn, against the crushing odds of the dangers on the outside. The world created by Bent and director Stephen Kaliski is built with love, a non-threatening retreat where Nadia can contemplate and decide...The sincerity Nadia exudes makes it impossible to judge her, and Bent so skillfully tickles the audience with her witty banter. It’s irresistible, and poignant exactly where it needs to be."
