BWW Review: THE FLICK is an Envelope-Pushing Must-See for All Serious Orlando Theatre FansBWW Review: THE FLICK is an Envelope-Pushing Must-See for All Serious Orlando Theatre Fans
by Matt Tamanini - Jun 25, 2015

The vast majority of theatre, even straight plays, has an intrinsic musicality that has become an engrained part of the art form; characters speak with an expected rhythm familiar to regular theatre viewers, dialogue is paced with a conventional choreography to which the audience has grown accustomed. While most playwrights strive for a heightened level of lyrical poetry from their scripts, Annie Baker's THE FLICK, by design, has no rhythm, nor choreography, nor poetry; what it has is uncomfortable reality. Since its debut in 2013, THE FLICK, presented at The Dr. Phillips Center through July 12th by Gen Y Productions, has amassed a devoted following and a Pulitzer Prize, but has also drawn the ire of many theatre-goers, who, frustrated by its unorthodoxy, leave the theater before the show is over. While THE FLICK, directed here by Tony-winning producer Kenny Howard, does have the occasional profanity and risque topics, it is nothing compared to that of theatre greats like David Mamet or Tracy Letts; no, the objection to THE FLICK is not because of its content, but because of how its content is presented.
