About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Dueling divas, squirrel warfare, and a lifetime of skeletons dragged from the closet. A weekend with the Sutherbys is never dull! With so many egos under one roof, one thing is certain: "Everyone wants to be in the spotlight!"

Funny, Entertaining, Quirky, Original, Dizzying

See it if You love intensely-woven comedies, intelligent humor, or even just plain old slapstick comedy.

Don't see it if you DON'T like slapstick comedy. Lots of stereotypical white family probz, so definitely not for someone looking for sophistication.

Entertaining, Ambitious, Great writing

See it if you like great comedy and good playwriting and enthusiastic though not necessarily competent staging.

Don't see it if can't live with a less than stellar cast. Most of the cast are thoroughly average; which means they are still better than fringe average.

Theatre is Easy
August 21st, 2016

"Watching the characters interact is far more entertaining than hearing their overly complicated backstory. As it is, the first act feels long and the cast has trouble handling the weight of their expository history. Happily the play picks up steam in the second act and hits its stride...With more development, I think 'The Sutherby Triplets' will be a play of glorious mayhem and gleeful family dynamics that would make any cast of 'The Real Housewives' proud"

CurtainUp
August 17th, 2016

"It could be condensed and made tauter, especially in its introduction—but when it hits its stride, there's fun to be found...The tensions between the Triplets manage to yield both humor and warmth, and while the siblings' quick toggles between zanier and more human modes can seem a bit manufactured, this ultimately serves to make them feel more like humans...A silly show that consciously flirts with treacle but stays just clever enough to avoid feeling too saccharine."

Theater In The Now
August 22nd, 2016

"The ridiculous factor is off the charts and much of the plot is dismissed. There is no reason for these people to be as outlandish as they are...With so many characters to take care of, it was hard to track individual story arcs and their overall purpose to the story...Taking on the role of director as well, Barrett-Gibson was the sole proprietor of comedy. When some of her jokes didn’t land, the momentum fell flat...A fun premise with old-fashioned charm...But there is room to improve."
