Exciting, Uneven, Raucous, Atmospheric, Mythic

See it if you would like to see a strong production of a modern classic American play, a signature play of one of America's great playwrights.

Don't see it if you no longer respond to Shepard's macho myth-making—or you never did. Read more

Great writing, Great acting, Intense, Riveting, Great staging

See it if you are a Shepard fan as this is a good production overall: acting is very good, set works well, sound and lights are good & nonstop action

Don't see it if you do not like tense relationships, shouting and brutal interchanges in an off off Broadway budget production.

"Kymberly Harris' direction did a wonderful job in keeping Shepherds play dark and raw...'Fool For Love' cannot be pulled off without good acting nor great lighting...Silver, Dits, Hale and Ruby all do a very believable, complementing job, and they do great service to Mr. Shepard's work...If this lighting is not done well, it would ruin the suspense, the concern that the audience should have. Goldstein nailed it."

"A fine production...The director Kymberly Harris did a fine job with a splendid cast...I was particularly struck by the way Sophia Silver's May changed when Martin came for their date. Eddie obviously brings out a great deal of anger and resentment in May, even inciting her to a physical fight. With Martin she is courteous and calm...Shepard is showing us how love is a thing that makes people crazy. Eddie and May share the madness. We are all literally fools for love."
