John Patrick Shanley
L.A. Times, Critics Choice "John Patrick Shanley's breakout exercise about two damaged outcasts who discover redemption in a Bronx dive can still pack a punch, which the bracing Crown City Theatre revival delivers...director John McNaughton controls the near-surreal tone with a straightforward touch that heightens the humor and grabs us by the throat." - David C. Nichols.
Broadwayworld.com, Critics Pick, 5 out of 5 stars. "a truly great theatrical experience." - Don Grigware
John Patrick Shanley's (Moonstruck, Joe vs. the Volcano, Doubt) play directed by John McNaughton (Mad Dog and Glory, Henry: Portrait of a Serial Killer, Homicide: Life on the Street) starring Juliet Landau (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Ed Wood) and Matthew J. Williamson (Sedona, Helter Skelter) revolves around the dilapidated lives of Danny and Roberta, two tortured strangers who meet by chance at a dive bar in the Bronx. Danny, an emotionally unstable, street brawling truck driver, and Roberta, a self-loathing, troubled woman, collide in a morbidly humorous, violent and vulgar fairy tale about a frightening and ultimately fascinating relationship.
