It’s about secrets; the kind we live with and the kind we keep in a box, it’s about love and betrayal, about demented fathers and missing mothers. Find out what’s inside "Danny’s Box," but for the love of God tell no one.
"Murphy’s writing is quick, funny, occasionally broad, but never insincere...Complimenting Murphy’s writing is Lisa Milinazzo’s fast-paced and tactful direction, which makes use of the entire space...The piece is then rounded out by a stellar cast, there is genuinely not a weak link to be found amongst them...It is funny and honest and not one to miss.” Full Review
“A crazy-funny story of love, lack of love, misguided love and sex in all its messed-up forms...This production, written very very well with great characters and warped situations, feels like it could use more rehearsal as it was very choppy and hesitant in many places exhibiting a car with one foot on the gas and the other on the brake. It’s a fine vehicle though that can give a wonderful top down, wind in your hair ride when properly tuned.” Full Review
See it if You enjoy a well-acted comedy of secrets just waiting to be revealed. Great direction, very funny and entertaining.
Don't see it if You can’t sit still for 110 minutes without an intermission. (Chairs not too comfortable.) Or if you want a deep play or a musical.
See it if You enjoy good ensemble acting and a well-written, engaging play in a comfortable small theater.
Don't see it if You're not an off-Broadway fan or don't like Irish playwrights.
See it if you need an evening of laughter. A deft, likable ensemble delivers this irreverently light parlor room comedy w/ winning charm and panache.
Don't see it if you're looking for a serious drama or story lines; you struggle with accents or w/ a 110-minute play w/o intermission in an intimate space.
See it if You like comedies that feel like the old classics but take place in today’s world
Don't see it if You have trouble suspending disbelief. There are a lot of far-fetched things that happened.
