Banal, Inconsistent, Odd, Edgy, Quirky

See it if you are curious about this curious show in which a man buys the woman he wants to marry and keeps her in a cage.

Don't see it if constancy of action is important to you. A lot of events in this production don't follow logically.

Thought-provoking, Indulgent, Confusing, Edgy, Ambitious

See it if Cruz's intense study in carnal obsession is both fascinating & frustrating Well acted with an arresting set help create a seductive universe

Don't see it if Allegory, metaphor & a telenovela, oh my!! It's density & deliberate obtuseness hinder any cogent understanding Possibly that's the point...

Good central performance, Endless, Stereotypical

See it if you admire earlier work of this playwright or this company & would like to see it all.

Don't see it if you don’t care to look in on a bizarre love triangle that just reinforces gender stereotypes & takes a very long, tedious time doing it. Read more

Beautifully lit, well staged and set, Solid, brilliant performances, Weirdly romantic, dark, Thought-provoking, Edgy, ambitious, intense

See it if You're up for a simultaneously dark, disturbing, somewhat creepy and funny meditation on unrequited love, the Other & what it is to be human

Don't see it if You've a weak stomach, are a prude; don't like love stories, Grand Guignol, Freaks or Beatles songs all well-mixed by a terrific cast & co. Read more

Pointless, Indulgent, Slow, Disappointing, Confusing

See it if you enjoy dark, joyless, apocalyptic settings and experiences. Tried hard to find meaning at any level and failed

Lighting & Sound America
November 12th, 2019

"Fur has the distinction of having the most unpalatable premise of the season so far… whatever [its] ideas about women, power, sexuality, freedom, male vanity, and the disruptive power of lust may be, they are impossible to make out in these overheated surroundings."

"While it's effectively staged, Fur is not for everyone. If you're a theatergoer who avoids plays with violent, visceral content or who is put off by ambiguity, you may decide to take a pass on it. Those who go, though, are not likely to soon forget the production or its unusual central character."
