We're going Friday. And that means Mamoun's Falafel for dinner!
O-ho the Wells Fargo wagon is a-comin' down the street.
Oh please let it be for me!

Just echoing what has been said here. I caught this over the weekend and found it to be quite the sold family drama. I don't think the play is as good as it could be, but the cast totally sells it. Julia Murney is terrific. Her speech about having no choice but to love a child was quite moving.

Overall I hope this does well, but for now everyone should catch it while they can. Tickets are pretty readily available.

Man, this is a beautiful little show...after I cried through a fair amount of it--being a parent of kids with disabilities myself--I promised the writer and director that I, too, would spread the word to folks to come and see it.

Don't know if there's enough of an audience for this, but there really ought to be. Go!

How is the set and tech elements? Never seen anything but Fringe shows in the Minetta.

The Set was one of the most fully realized I have seen at Minetta Lane. Very detailed house set. Realistic and functional. Totally believable.

Saw Falling last night at Minetta Lane Theatre in the Village, and am still stunned from the superb acting, great story and one of the best plot twists I've seen since the bacon in Our Town. It's a show about a family whose son has autism, and at 18, is getting hard to handle at home.

At the talkback after, which included the whole cast, playwright and director, many in the audience said how real it seemed -- how it echoed their own family experiences. Daniel Everidge, who plays the son, and Jacey Powers, who plays the daughter, said part of their research was going to the special autism performance of The Lion King. Playwright Deanna Jent, whose own son is autistic, said not everything in the script was autobiographical, but it was all true.

Thanks Pammy for the recommendation, and yes, Mamoun's falafels are still the best way to spend $3 in the Village!

I saw it this past weekend and definitely enjoyed it. Murney is, as everyone has said, wonderful, as is the entire cast. It's not really anything mind-blowingly perfect, but I definitely enjoyed it more than most of the original plays I've seen of late on Broadway. It's a fast 90 minutes, and it does get pretty intense, but the payoff is well worth it. Pretty powerful stuff, even if not all of it worked exceptionally well for me.
