Featured Reviews For Fish In the Dark


Fish in the Dark review: Larry David hits sublime comic heights - Guardian
In Fish in the Dark...David plays what we can assume is another version of his real self...The Anna D Shapiro-directed play...looks in on a family grappling with a tragedy and what comes after, something he calls "death etiquette". It's a topic that puts David in his element. Dealing with parents, sex, death and the marital strife that comes with it: it's all there, and at times it's hilarious...he has the ability to slay the crowd with a gesture: standing on stage, arms out to both sides in mock outrage, a colossal grin on his face...While the set pieces are concocted with genius, and some...turn toe-curling into an art form, they don't come sublimely full circle in the way that David's plots are known and praised for. The show is very linear, and some of the funniest and cleverest scenes are cut off before they can really blossom. By the admittedly exceptional comic standards David has laid down, this ranks alongside an average episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm.

BWW Reviews: FISH IN THE DARK a Blatantly Commercial Broadway Star Vehicle, not that there's anything wrong with that. - BroadwayWorld
Yes, Larry David's Fish In The Dark is closer in spirit to a rock star's live appearance than anything resembling the emergence of an important new voice in American theatre, but once you accept it for what it is, the kind of well-oiled joke machine that put plenty of fannies in Broadway seats during the 1960s, it's a really fun night out...Directed by the overqualified Anna D. Shapiro, the evening runs briskly, despite the star being a "low-talker" with an aversion to cheating his body out so the audience can see his face clearly...it's the stage-savvy veterans who strike comic gold..."It's real, and it's spectacular" may be stretching it a bit, but Fish In The Dark is, at the very least, pretty, pretty, pretty, pretty good.
