Great acting, Funny, Edgy, Fluffy, Overrated

See it if The acting saves this show. The plot was fair at best. Nice small theater to see the show. If your an aspiring actor, see it. 2 good actors.

Don't see it if If you want a real good plot or a story that is believable. Fast past action throughout.

Absorbing, Great acting, Great writing, Profound, Resonant

See it if You want an emotionally charged, character driven drama with appropriate comedic moments. A heartbreaking play of extreme personalities.

Don't see it if You don't like darkness and visceral emotion. If you want more plot than character building. You don't want something bare bones.

Theatre is Easy
September 25th, 2015

"This taut, riveting, and well-acted drama brings two psychologically fragile people together for a night of romance and danger...This character-driven drama underscores the power of humans to comfort one another, however clumsily. And while there’s plenty of grit in this compelling drama, there’s also tenderness and beauty. All told, 'Danny and the Deep Blue Sea' is a well-performed look at lust, love, and human possibility. It’s a top-notch revival."

Let's Talk Off-Broadway
September 25th, 2015

"Together these outstanding actors, working with Moira’s deeply understanding direction, create a world. I didn’t want to leave that world when it was over, and I’ll never forget it. 'Danny and the Deep Blue Sea' plays in a little theater as off- off- Broadway as you can get and you can’t find better theater anywhere."
