BWW Reviews: Acting Soars as Writing Falls in NEXT FALL
by BWW News Desk - Jun 23, 2013

The reasoning behind staging a Tony Nominee for Best Play is quite easy to understand. Plays that have either been nominated for or won a Tony are easily marketable to the public. Still there is that occasional Tony nominated play that is a complete head scratcher, a play so poorly written it's baffling that it made it to Broadway in the first place, let alone snag a nomination for Best Play. Case in point: the poorly written and conceived Next Fall by Geoffrey Nauffts. While the Austin premiere of the play, currently staged by The Paradox Players, features some incredible performances, the incredible work of the cast still can't cover up the vast shortcomings of the text.
