Photo Flash: A Look at Sanguine Theatre Company's WILD, Now Through 4/6
Sanguine Theatre Company presents Wild by Crystal Skillman at the IRT Theater (154 Christopher Street) in downtown Manhattan. Evan F. Caccioppoli, who helmed the world premiere of the play in Chicago, directs the New York premiere. Look below for photos from the production!
Peter and Bobby graduated from Northwestern together, live together, work together and sleep together. But when on of them cheats with a woman, they dive into a world of wild sexual affairs that threaten what they once had. Set on a beach on Lake Michigan, Wild is a savagely funny Chicago story of desperate love.
Doug Stassler just recommended the show alongside Stage Kiss and the Happiest Song Plays Last in his Off Broadway Recommendations for Garden State Journal raving that "this delicate work is a must-see, thanks to the work of director Evan F. Caccioppoli and especially Crystal Skillman, the show's prodigiously talented playwright." Geeks Out insists on getting tickets now to see WILD's "beautiful character writing ... and the way the actors who bring these characters alive." Theater in the Now commends the New York production's "top both ensemble" and how director Evan F. Caccioppoli "... expertly tackles Skillman's story, discovering some wonderful moments and creating some beautiful stage pictures on Jonathan Cottle's sandbox set and atmospheric lighting design" adding that "the script is a knockout."
