BWW Review: White Horse Theater Presents Sam Shepard's EYES FOR CONSUELA
Sam Shepard's acclaimed EYES FOR CONSUELA is back at the Gene Frankel Theatre in SoHo. Starring Pietro Gonzalez, Marieta Carrero, Richard Fiske, and Roberto Adolpho, the story follows two men from different worlds who find a common ground.
Henry (Fiske), an American man trying to find himself during a mid-life crisis, is vacationing in the Mexican jungle when he is ambushed by Amado (Adolpho), a Mexican bandit intent upon cutting out Henry's eyes for his lover Consuela (Carrero). During the holdup, the two exchange stories of love, loss, and life events that make the two see eye to eye. Powerful performances by all actors, and a perfect set by Andis Gjoni, the production is one for the ages, and most definitely Sam Shepard fans.
The White Horse Theater Company will continue to present EYES FOR CONSUELA through February 21 at the Gene Frankel Theatre (24 Bond Street in SoHo). The show is directed by White Horse Theater Company's Producing Artistic Director Cyndy A. Marion.
