Head downtown to Le Chat Noir for an evening of cocktails and theatre.
By Gina Gionfriddo
Directed by Doug Joiner
"Gina Gionfriddo's comedy of bad manners, a tangled tale of love, sex and ethics among a quartet of men and women in their thirties, is as engrossing as it is ferociously funny, like a big box of fireworks fizzing and crackling across the stage from its first moments to its last…deftly plotted, scabrous and sharp-witted…One of the great pleasures of BECKY SHAW is the way the moral ground keeps shifting underneath your feet." —NY Times.
"The characters in Gionfriddo’s blind-date-gone-bad black comedy share the potential to revolt … They’re also subversively funny — and improbably charming. Grade: A." —Entertainment Weekly. "…scathing, class-conscious comedy…BECKY SHAW exerts a hypnotic pull, thanks in large part to the wonderfully witty dialogue and complex characterizations." —NY Post.
"Blithely cynical and devastatingly funny…witty observations on the emotional damage inflicted by neurotic people in the name of love…Gionfriddo is some kind of genius." —Variety.
