BWW Review: DIVORCE PARTY and the End of Life As We [Don't Really] Know It
by Kristen Morale - Apr 25, 2017

What we have here is a masterfully crafted show called Divorce Party, something so wacky and farfetched but so rooted in the inward and outward complexities of life (as are so many absurd things) that it encapsulates life as we acknowledge it to be, but are not always so eager or able to share with others. Real, tangible life where the irony here is that everyone lives in an acknowledged fantasy - the worst kind of all, where you know you are falling and failing but can't help yourself or do anything to change the circumstances. Six friends who come together to witness how "happy" their two recently divorced friends are is already a precursor to disaster, an epiphany waiting to happen because of how "happy" they truly are not. This is the best new disaster happening in the East Village, and from the ingenious plot to the messed up crew who make it all too real, you are absolutely going to love this show. (more...)
