Times Union review of Frankie & Johnny — another rave.


“It seems astonishing that “Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune,” Terrance McNally’s celebration of sex and possible love between a pair of damaged members of the working poor, is now more than three decades old. Aside from a few dated references and hallmarks of yesteryear like a wall phone, the two-character play, as performed in a new production that launches the 2018 season at Bridge Street Theatre, is both immediate and timeless. Under the direction of Sara Lampert Hoover, the production feels vibrant, raw and real, and it is by turns lusty and tender. In roars and whispers, it makes a plea for love being worth the risk no matter how much it’s wounded you in the past.” – Steve Barnes, Albany Times Union
