Sue sings blues tunes to calm herself down. Tabitha thinks vigilantes are trying to kill her. Ella and Lisa need money and a ride home for Christmas. Thus begins the romanticized romp and madness of 'Holy Moly.' Inspired by a play within writer/director Jake Shore’s novel, 'A Country for Fibbing,' 'Holy Moly' is dreamed up by one of the book’s central characters. The concurrent debuts of 'Holy Moly' and 'A Country for Fibbing' mark the first time a play and a correlating novel have been released simultaneously in the U.S.
See it if This is a strong new voice in American theater. The book aspect is what drew me in, but the show is great. Dark and engaging the whole way.
Don't see it if Dark humor that borders on horror turns you off.
See it if This was fun. A cool mix of David Lynch and David Mamet. The actress who played Sue did a hell of a job singing. Good writing.
Don't see it if Pretty weird sense of humor.
See it if To see this quality play and then read the book it's attached to is an enriching experience. This type of immersion hasn't been done.
Don't see it if You're against all female characters acting in dominant and dangerous ways.
See it if Four women who never talk about men.
Don't see it if Every little thing needs to be spelled out for you. Even though it's a really fun play it's pretty complex, but in a good way.
See it if The Flea is known for presenting innovative projects, and this is a testament to their commitment. This is a powerful idea. Great writing.
Don't see it if You'd rather art and theater not make you work very hard.
See it if I also read the book, and this really is a unique experience. Like nothing I've ever seen put out there in NYC.
Don't see it if You need your art spoon fed.
