See it if Some real good acting in this performance. A story that is not deep but humorous at times.
Don't see it if If you want a show that follows through on the plot lines. Disappointing story about girls going through maturity. Needs polish.
See it if Femia's Catholic school girl dramedy is far from 'catholic' with the usual yet amusing coming-of-age antics Lesbian love story well handled
Don't see it if Annoying that all characters have "baggage" as it muddies main theme of budding sexuality vs religious dogma Canter excels in adult roles
“Bolstered by an energetic cast, Femia’s characters exude wit and tenderness as they navigate the highs and lows of adolescence. Clever spoofs of authority figures, riffs on pop culture, and awkward facts-of-life discoveries pepper the action, as do poignant instances of conflict with gender roles, depression, loss, sexuality, and existential confusion...The element of religious oversight adds interesting layers to the girls’ coming-of-age process."
"You don’t have to be female, or Catholic, to relate to the adolescents in this sharp, funny new comedy...A rapid sequence of short, often hilarious scenes...The girls’ breakthrough moment during the play within the play makes the “real” play’s end a little facile. But for the characters themselves it feels well deserved, and this solid cast shepherded skillfully by director Blayze Teicher makes them come alive so thoroughly that we root for them without reserve."
“Femia’s extraordinary new high school-set play...The marvelous actors...feel like unapologetic, searching acolytes in the grip of religious, educational, and societal higher beings, seeking a way out or at least a better understanding of where they all fit in...Femia’s play is a burgeoning rose ready to enjoy full bloom...This important, honest, and youthful point of view and discussions in the play provide no easy answers for a world that attacks and belittles women and minorities every day.”
"The cast is strong in both productions, easily adapting to Shakespeare’s language in 'Measure' and convincingly playing high school students in 'The Virtuous Fall.' All of the performers hinted at the rich inner lives of their characters...'The Virtuous Fall' is the stronger production partially by virtue of being longer...Both productions, however, are important contributions to the conversation about how the world treats female and nonbinary sexes and genders as inherently sinful."
