Review from B.A. Nilsson in Words and Music

“Heartbreakingly wonderful … Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune is a two-hour master class in discovering our secret selves, delivered with discursive dialogue that’s whip-crack smart, but it requires a creative team that’s as smart as the script. The stellar production at Catskill’s Bridge Street Theatre puts two fabulous actors on a set (designed by John Sowle) just stylized enough to alert us from the start to expect touches of fantasy … This is a magical love story with enough comedy to remind us of the truth in this tale. And it’s a terrific display of creative talent.” B.A. Nilsson, Words And Music

Times Union review of Frankie & Johnny — another rave.

“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

Our first review of FRANKIE & JOHNNY is a rave

“The most timeless piece of lovely romantic fluff produced by a major author in the latter half of the 20th century and a play always worth reviving and revisiting. At Bridge Street Theatre in Catskill, New York, a lovely couple of actors are giving this play everything it needs and a bit more into the bargain … This attractive, well-played production gives the McNally treasure all the life it has any right to expect.” J. Peter Bergman, Berkshire Bright Focus
