About the Show

Part of FringeNYC: Seven women. One unsettling new art exhibit: photographs taken surreptitiously of people in a small town. Fearing humiliation, the women unite for a summer night's escapade to face the sad, funny, beautiful truth. A philosophical comedy about seeing and being seen.

August 16th, 2016

"This small-town play is substantially overgrown and too fond of a whiny major character. But Ms. Partee is exploring something interesting with her seven-woman cast: the poisonous, isolating impact of jealousy, and the liberating effect of a generous female gaze."

"At times, Partee’s direction falls short. Her prose is quite poetic, but there are missed opportunities for the rhythm of this piece to really pop. Further, the staging of a few scenes feels a bit haphazard...The strength of this piece lies in its writing, and the ways in which Partee refuses to take a side in the controversy at the heart of this piece..In its refusal to provide a solution, it offers a gift to its audience: it forces us to think carefully about the intricacies of this case."

"'Mrs. Schrodinger’s Cat' has enormous potential. With editing and some reduction in scope it could be a terrific Off-Broadway production. Though the otherwise very compelling storyline and philosophical problem occasionally goes astray, Partee’s dialog is sharp, witty and revealing. She has developed characters with depth that we want to know more about and she leaves hanging many questions that aren’t (and shouldn’t necessarily be) ultimately answered."

"What's compelling here is that Partee investigates some serious artistic issues in her play and has the courage to let its gray areas remain gray. Partee, who also wears the hat of director here, smartly allows the able cast to bring her story to vibrant life and lets the audience become the judge of the unfolding events. Okay, the performance I attended wasn't flawless...But...this piece has humor, psychological depth, and a whiff of philosophy."

“The two-act play is quirky yet balanced with truth and heart. Partee's script is snappy, even if the tempo occasionally faltered. Her characters feel as if they can live in a serial world, existing through weekly hijinks. It's a play with a plethora of promise...At the end of the day, ‘Mrs. Schrodinger's Cat’ is a lovely dramedy. It's sugary in all the right ways. This is a play that could use an outside eye to guide through the wavering tones to bring each out properly.”

"While the play’s dialogue leans towards slightly clunky at times, that’s the most critical comment to be made. The acting is all convincing, and every character is unique and fleshed out...The best part of the production lies not in the details, but the concepts it approaches…'Mrs. Schrodinger's Cat' raises a multiplicity of questions, and offers no answers…It is no mind-blowing play, no work that leaves you with tear-stained cheeks, but it is a thoughtful one, and an interesting one."
