BWW Review: Casting Spells Productions' FRANKIE AND JOHNNY IN THE CLAIR DE LUNE is a Funny, Sexy, Awkward, Bittersweet Dance
by Jill Schafer - Nov 23, 2015

A short order cook who is an ex-con and reads Shakespeare. A waitress who's given up her dream of being an actress and is afraid to hope for anything more in life. It may seem inevitable that these two NYC diner coworkers get together, but how it happens is a funny, sexy, awkward, bittersweet little dance in the two-person play Frankie And Johnny In The Clair De Lune. From the company that brought us the delightfully disgruntled princesses of Disenchanted comes a very different play, but maybe not so different as it at first seems. In just their second outing, Casting Spells Productions once again delivers a funny, risky, well-cast, and entertaining show. I look forward to seeing what spells they cast in the future. (more...)
