Boundless Theatre Company's New York premiere tells the story of a bizarre love triangle and probes the beating heart of impulsive, unconventional desire. More…
From the show:
In the midst of a post-apocalyptic sandstorm, Citrona, a young woman whose body is covered in fur, is purchased, caged and fetishized by a pet shop owner named Michael. When he hires beautiful Nena to hunt for Citrona’s food, an absurd and captivating love triangle ensnares all three characters. Intense, primal and delightfully bizarre, Migdalia Cruz's FUR exposes the beating heart of impulsive, unconventional desire.
See it if you enjoy dark, joyless, apocalyptic settings and experiences. Tried hard to find meaning at any level and failed
Don't see it if you don't want to have to see a really good actor stuck in a cage in a distracting fur suit
See it if Staging is good; great use of the basement space to show, well, a basement. Acting isn't bad and the play almost feels alive for 30min or so
Don't see it if The script is hopeless with the writing style a middle schooler would be ashamed of. Constant repetitions of banalities that lead nowhere.
See it if You are friends with the playwright/cast. Go if you’re an aspiring writer and think you’ll never get produced. There is always an audience.
Don't see it if If you like cohesive story telling and compelling acting. The writing left a lot to be desired. Very disjointed and indulgent. Hard pass.
See it if you enjoy interesting concepts I thought this one had promise but i found little to praise beyond the sound, lights and hard working actors
Don't see it if you want a cohesive story that holds your interest. Fur costume was more distracting than beneficial to the character. Love/sex unbelievable
See it if you're a Migdalia Cruz devotee; you are okay with a complicated plot that never completely gels
Don't see it if you want performances or direction that can help you navigate this unnecessarily complex plot. The world isn't sufficiently built, and the
Also relationships don't feel earned.
See it if your best friend is involved in "Fur"; you like to support indie theatre; you're intrigued by side-show characters -- like the Bearded Lady
Don't see it if you like well-made plays w/ snappy, memorable dialogue, relatable characters, or a traditional narrative arc; you enjoy happy endings
See it if You want to seat trough almost two excruciating hours of total nonsense action about a “ surreal “ love triangle.
Don't see it if You want to see a play with some meaning, any kind of meaning. This one is a total train wreck and don’t get me started with the acting.
See it if You want to see two very good actresses and a fine actor with some pretty cool lighting. Those are the only reasons.
Don't see it if If you don't like bestiality, brief cannibalism, a plot that goes nowhere, 2 hours with no intermission, seemingly no point to this show.
See it if A dark fairy tale about hunger, desire and the danger of indulging one’s lust is your craving.
Don't see it if You’d have a hard time sitting through inert, non-sequitar monologues, non-events and indulgent, ungrounded performances.
