Review of Departures

It's the oldest story in the world—boy meets girl, boy loves girl, boy loses girl—but it feels new again every time it happens to you. And as an audience member at Kristen Palmer's play Departures, you feel like it's happening to you all over again, because director Kyle Ancowitz's visceral production puts the audience in such intimate contact with the stage that you're (literally) trapped in the bedroom with a couple as they work out their relationship. The production makes physical the play's emotional subtext, its structural metaphors, in rich and powerful ways. - Loren Noveck, nytheatre.com


A sterling review of Depatures over at nytheatre.com. I couldn't agree more. Read here.

Sounds good. Looking forward to seeing it. That Ancowitz is a clever fellow... Ivy League, so I hear. And he is also double-jointed.

Okay. Okay I made up that last detail.
