About the show

Nylon Fusion Theatre Company presents the world premiere of a story about a Manhattan architect whose sudden addiction to a mysterious waitress sabotages his marriage and his career. More…

A cutting-edge environmental architect named Richie would seem to have everything - great friends, a lucrative career and a gorgeous wife. But in the company of his lawyer and friend, Tom, he meets a waitress whose guileless combination of beauty, innocence and helplessness begin to obsess him. As Tom watches helplessly, Richie attempts to fold this strange girl into his newly burgeoning family, then resigns his posh job to follow her as she drifts from place to place. The play is a chilling reminder of the primal, Strindbergian compulsions that infect otherwise reasonable men, and the price that’s paid by those who love them.

Disappointing, Amateurish, Slow, Insipid

See it if you like third-rate college productions with amateur actors.

Don't see it if you have sophisticated taste in theatre.

Funny, Great acting, Relevant, Romantic, Entertaining

See it if You enjoy plays about young people trying to overcome serious problems caused by excess use of drugs and alcohol. Fine acting.

Don't see it if You don't like plays about contemporary issues that plague our youth. You don't like plays that portray heavy drinking and drugging staged.

Great acting, Confusing, Disappointing

See it if You want to see great acting, particularly by Ivette Dumeng, and like romantic obsession.

Don't see it if You don't like scripts that ultimately are unbelievable. Too many holes in the plot but terrific theater company.

Entertaining, Great acting, Great writing

See it if Great acting and writing and entertaining throughout despite a character whose choices were unusually destructive

Don't see it if destructive behavior would ruin your enjoyment of an otherwise entertaining play

"This drama leaves audiences actively thinking throughout the entire production about why we are driven to make the choices we do and what causes something to snap inside of us.

"'Half Moon Bay' is quick and concise and makes its point with almost no hammering. It’s cleanly directed by Margarett Perry, and very well acted by the entire company...This play deserves future productions, and I’m confident it will find its way into the American repertory. It’s very much a sto...

"Director Margarett Perry took Jiler’s fluid script and made it translate onto the stage...'Half Moon Bay' is quite an interesting text. There’s something enticing about having an emotional connection, whether good, bad, or indifferent. But there is a spark missing that can set this play apart."

"Jean Goto is excellent as Pam, the wronged wife, and the most physically free of all the characters....Ben Gougeon is stiff in his role as the obsessed lover and lacks clout where he needs it most — in every 'turning point' moment with Alicia. Director Margarett Perry keeps the play moving brisk...
