About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: In this fast-paced thriller teetering between caustic comedy and warped kitchen-sink drama, six sisters must stir a pot. 24/7. They're tied to it. By trauma? By magic...? They stir, brutally brawl, and wonder: does this really keep Babette alive?

Excruciating, Waste of time

See it if you want to see an all-female cast playing a family on edge with each other, constantly swearing and fighting.

Don't see it if you want something that is interesting or funny. As best put by another audience member: "Who writes that shit?" I give a C-/D+ grade.

Absorbing, Intense, Riveting, Must see, Original

See it if you're looking for an intricate plot and complex characters

Don't see it if you're not ready for a dark play, lots of fighting, and sudden violence

"Although the summer heat can be stifling, the venue’s small size does put the audience in close proximity to the stellar all-female cast—a key factor in our enjoyment of the show. As the play mixes Christmas-dinner-gone-awry family dynamics with mystical plot points that keep the audience wondering what’s going on, the actors create a sense of real sisterhood. Within the strange world that Barsotti has created, they keep the play at a lively boil."

"Barsotti’s intriguing script is brought to life by heartfelt performances. The cast works off each other so organically you could believe they are sisters. Warden’s purposefully ungraceful fight choreography also helps set the dark and raw tone of the show...Yet the show feels slow, at times painfully so. Sometimes it drags so much even some fight scenes feel redundant...'Brewed' has a voice to offer in discussions of feminism and women in theatre, and I look forward to seeing where it goes."
