The Screaming Pope
February 19th, 2016

"'Skip to My Lou' is a drama of ideas, but it’s also a drama. In this regard it bears the strong imprint of Harold Pinter whose threat filled story lines were also disquisitions on being. The air of constant and literal physical menace is something that the director S.C. Lucier artfully underscores throughout the production…The provocation of Romagnoli’s script transcends any kind of intellectual shock jockery…As a playwright of ideas, Romagnoli is right up there with Stoppard. Don’t miss it."
