She Won’t Talk, but Everyone Else Does
Saturday, November 16, 2013

Directed by Michelle Bossy, “Cloven Tongues” is very far from flawless. Yet in a downtown theater scene that often prizes pretension and snark over coherence and craft, it can feel like the only adult around. Even if you never see the play, be a little glad it’s there.

Cloven Tongues Review

Cloven Tongues raises interesting questions about the lies we tell ourselves in order to survive and about what can happen when we let the lies go.

A Big Voice in a Small Room
Monday, November 11, 2013

We've reached a time when Broadway is producing shows based on movies and is habitually reviving old revivals, so Saturday night I was pleased to find a solid new drama in a small (89-seat) East Village theater. It's been a very long time since I've seen a show in such an intimate space and I'd forgotten what a challenge and a treat it can be for the cast and audience.
"The play is really a mystery," explains director Michelle Bossy. "There's someone on the stage and she is not telling us anything about herself and we spend a good part of the play wondering what's wrong with her and how to fix her. It gets unlocked when a miracle - some kind of miracle -- happens on stage. It's very theatrical and very exciting."
