Ambitious, Edgy, Confusing, Indulgent, Thought-provoking

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...

Stereotypical, Endless, Good central performance

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

"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."
