SHOW TITLE: The Lightning Field
RUNNING TIME: 1 h 30 min
VENUE: Flea Theatre GENRE: Play (Drama)
AIR CONDITIONED: Yes
INTERMISSION: No

RATING (0-4): 4

RATING SCALE :

0 Run, don’t walk, away from this disaster

2 Mild summer fare
3 More than just hype
4 Don’t miss this one its FRINGE-tastic!

COMMENTS:

Well-written, well-directed, well-acted, well-produced. Well-done! Do not miss! However, please note this production contains nudity and sexual violence. This production is not for the weak of heart. If discussions of sexual perversion disturb you, do not see this show. On the other hand, if my note of caution has made you think this is a show simply about the sexually perverse, it is not! This is a show about a complicated cross section of relationships between a gay couple and their parents. To say more would make it sound trite, which it is not. Go see it!

POST-FRINGE PREDICTIONS:

I hope it is picked up! With a couple stars in the older roles, it could play Off-Broadway at the Barrow or even NYTW. I hope we see this one somewhere else.
