Front Row Center

“There is energy in this cast...This production gets points for how it engages the audience, with modern references and relevant objects like cell phones without doing harm to the spirit of the play. You may even find yourself offered a rose, or invited onto the stage. In a parking lot on Norfolk, not far from Canal Street, the canals of Venice play out a fateful drama, while in the New York City background random sirens sing.”
