Absorbing, Great acting, Great staging, Intriguing, Ambitious

See it if you are interested in seeing a show about ambition, love, and manipulation between a poet and her mentor. Creative set and costume changes.

Don't see it if you are not a fan of intimate theater experiences or of shows that deal with death and suicide. Theater is very small and gets very warm.

Absorbing, Intriguing, Quirky, Entertaining, A little stiff

See it if You like original stories that don’t go where you necessarily expect them to. It’s a small budget so you have to use your imagination a bit.

Don't see it if You can’t overlook a few diamond in the rough sort of flaws. This isn’t perfect by any stretch but it’s immensely intriguing & entertaining.

Wordy, Disappointing, Slow, Insipid, Banal

See it if humorless revenge drama seems like a good way to spend an evening.

Don't see it if you are feeling tired -- the room is hot and the play is slow.

"Brilliantly performed and smartly staged...An inventive take on the dramatic territories of Sylvia Plath, Anne Sexton, and Elizabeth Bishop...Vetere’s dialogue is elegantly crafted and a joy to listen to...A major achievement of his play is providing three riveting roles for women that are brilliantly performed by two actresses...From its dreamy prologue to its stunning conclusion, 'Lady Macbeth and Her Lover' is powerfully enchanting."

“The story and its themes are so intriguing that I want everything about this production to be better...Bossy’s direction lacks the edge and suspense to spotlight the complex world of the play. There are moments in which the actors sit or stand still for 5-10 minutes length of conversation. In addition to the sometimes robotic delivery of lines, this choice is problematic...Work that causes me to ruminate over the existential struggles of artists is worth perfecting.”
