This world premiere comedy is a two-person modern love story about a young woman who finds her relationship with her screenwriter boyfriend challenged when he experiences sudden career success. More…
"Fusion" tells the story of Alison, an accomplished chef, and Daniel, an aspiring screenwriter moonlighting as a movie critic. They’ve been dating about six months when Daniel drops a bombshell on her: he’s been offered a dream job writing movies in Hollywood and must leave in one week! When she can’t bring herself to move there with him, they go their separate ways. Three years later, he’s back – hoping she’ll change her mind. But his strategy of showing up drunk in the middle of the night, his newly won Oscar in tow – might not be the best.
“While it has some effective elements, 'Fusion' seems to make a caricature of relationships rather than delving deep to explore intimacy between two people...What 'Fusion' attempts may seem simple, but the simplicity demands perfection and this piece is lacking. Conversations go on too long or never quite reach fruition. Logic strings arguments together but seems unnatural...Parrish's script is not altogether unsuccessful, it just plays very one-sided.” Full Review
See it if You like a great romance and well drawn characters. There are some great laughs here as well and both actors give terrific performances.
Don't see it if You dont like shows that are smaller in scale and don't have a lot of effect drive spectacle.
See it if you like romantic plays and get ideas about problems young couples might face when trying to balance a new love and a new job. Great acting!
Don't see it if you like serious, thought-provoking shows.
See it if You enjoy Hallmark movies. This is a cute rom-com. Script plays very realistic. Would have liked even more humor. Actors were excellent!
Don't see it if You don’t like Rom-coms. Pretty straight-forward plot with a grownup ending.
See it if you want to see a show about a relationship between two people. The first act is good, the second act falls flat.
Don't see it if you want to see a show that is dynamic. The second act is like a glass of warm milk...Not much energy.
See it if you would be happy with a fluffy show that is pleasant but unmemorable and provides some laughs along the way.
Don't see it if you prefer a fast paced show with depth, surprise, or unexpected turns.
See it if you're into young playwrights and actors trying their best, enjoy long uninteresting dialogues and an unoriginal story stretched to 2 hours
Don't see it if you have little patience for endless banter that seems to repeat the same themes, and broad, annoying, characters that are badly written
See it if Everything so naturally comes together, as if we are living the story as the characters. It feels excessive to think... What's not to like?
Don't see it if You hate romantic stories... It's hard to choose between true love and dream job, no guarantee either way. 2nd chance doesn't come often!
