Absorbing, Resonant, Intense

See it if Emotional and well acted, but a bit uneven. Will resonate with girls close to their dads.

Don't see it if You can't handle a work about 9-11

Absorbing, Great singing, Relevant, Thought-provoking, Intense

See it if You want to hear young ladies talk about the loss of their dad on 9/11 and how it has affected their lives. You like simple staging.

Don't see it if You are not okay with revisiting 9/11. Don't like simple staging. You do not want to feel and reflect. Read more

Theatre is Easy
August 14th, 2016
For a previous production

"The reason to see 'The Fall' is for the performances. And let me offer that it isn’t just the lead actors who are standouts...There’s some really honest listening happening up there, and some remarkably truthful and powerful actors handling these monologues...That said, Lilia Rubin’s play feels dated...We aren’t allowed a gripping story to hang our hats on, but rather a patchwork of intimately related episodes."

NY Theatre Guide
August 14th, 2016
For a previous production

“Lilia Ruben, the playwright, has crafted a strong text that has obviously been intensively researched and cleverly structured...She has a great ability to shape characters that are recognizable and believable...Director Jane Arnfield has injected this performance with inspired blocking, moments of heartbreaking beauty, and gentle humanity, which makes it a delicate orchid that blooms powerfully in your imagination.”
