Ambitious, Great acting, Intelligent, Refreshing, Romantic

See it if you like history and hate gentrification.

Don't see it if you are looking for plot. This is mostly interwoven monologues.

Don't see it if No reason not to see it.

"Patrick Fenton’s 'Stoopdreamer' is a lovely ode to 'the good ole days,'and is a balanced blend of humor and depth. Strong performances, an ease of pace, and an intimate portrayal of a generation left behind highlight this satisfying trip down memory lane."

Theatre is Easy
September 10th, 2015

"'Everything changes and nothing stands still' Plato once cautioned. Patrick Fenton’s 'Stoopdreamer' acknowledges this, at the same time asking us to remember, and perhaps defend, those who get trampled in the rush to questionable progress."

"Under the even hand of director Kira Simring, the cast of 'Stoopdreamer' create three authentic characters whose stories counterpoint the gradual development of Windsor Terrace and give flesh and blood to the historical account of the disappearance of a community...an engaging look at the process of gentrification."

"I absolutely loved Pat Fenton’s 'Stoopdreamer.' Set in Farrell’s Bar and Grill in Windsor Terrace in Brooklyn, this tale tells of the gentrification, urban planning, development without regard to the people it displaces...This is a piece of history that hits home more times than we would like to count."

"Playwright Pat Fenton delivers a gentle ode to an era, a place, and a romance which have all seemingly disappeared forever...Black and white images are projected, and these, combined with Fenton’s graceful text, evoke past and present to make this brief theatrical memory a piece to treasure."
