BWW Review: FAILURE: A LOVE STORY Opens the Block Party Series at the Kirk Douglas Theatre
by Shari Barrett - Apr 21, 2017

'Failure: A Love Story' chronicles the lives, loves and deaths of the three Fail sisters (June Carryl, Margaret Katch, and Nicole Shalhoub) and the one man with the double moniker Mortimer Mortimer (Kurt Quinn) who fell in love with each of them but not at the same time. Set against the backdrop of 1920s Chicago, this touching, whimsical tale explores the impermanence of life and the permanence of love, especially among devoted family members. The 'failure' in the title refers to poor Mortimer's inability to ever marry any of the three sisters after falling in love with them, as the untimely deaths of the three sisters happen before any marriages can take place.

BWW Review: An ELEVATOR Ride Provides an Emotionally Uplifting Experience for Seven Strangers
by Shari Barrett - Apr 17, 2017

When traveling between floors on an elevator, how often do you look around and react to strangers, wondering who they are or what they do for a living?

The play originally premiered at the Hudson theaters during the first annual Hollywood Fringe Festival.
