Erin Cronican is intense and mesmerizing, along with a supporting cast that takes you along on the haunting journey of a first date turned stalker. Erin is not only talented with her presence and delivery on stage, but really conveys the vulnerability and helplessness of a woman who has to deal with a very real and imminent threat. Tension is expertly heightened and I wouldn't be surprised if audience members leave their lights on for the next few weeks when going to bed. Very well done!
Had the pleasure of attending the August 1, 2015 performance. I really didn't know what to expect. Wow! Is all I can say. The acting was superb. The subject matter presented intelligently and with absolute genuine realness. I wish I had brought my kids.
I went to see this play with my visiting 14 year-old grandson in towe at the suggestion of a friend. I must admit to having had low to medium expectations, walking into the off-off Bway venue. However, the change in my view between then and when I left was quite stunning. Rebecca Gilman's dialogue moved fast and beautifully built the intensity of this well crafted psycho thriller. Having said that the actor's were well up to the task of delivering the goods. Erin Cronican was outstanding in the role of Theresa, a besieged NY single woman, living alone and being stalked by a loose cannon named Tony. Her transition from defiance to concern to outright fear was palpable and the work of a superb professional. And Daniel Michael Perez gave her plenty to work with as the extremely creepy but equally threatening and scary villain. It was striking how absolutely believable he was. The rest of the cast each did a great job in support. By the way, my Grandson loved it every bit as much as I did!!!
I really enjoyed Boy Gets Girl. The characters were so gently portrayed that it made it easier to watch this heavy piece. It was a great ensemble cast, and the energy & intensity remained high throughout the show. As always, The Seeing Place Theater took it's job as providing professional theater extremely seriously with high production values that show through clever staging and tight transitions. I'll continue to look forward to future shows at the company's new home.
Great show and amazing performances, especially by Erin Cronican. I really felt all that her character was going through. Highly recommend this show and The Seeing Place Theatre
This play was absolutely delightful! It was beautifully directed and the cast was outstanding! Erin Cronican gave the most compelling performance - I was at the edge of my seat.
Now, get thee to the show, get thee to the show on time! Only tonight and tomorrow-you should see one of the most remarkable and captivating off-off Broadway productions that you will find this summer. A script packed with drama and mystery, gender and stalking issues, and characters that take on unique and endearing personalities--every one still memorable the day after. A great little theater company, Seeing Place Theater, has made a warm welcoming home in Kips Bay, the most unlikely place to expect to find a theater. This theater company may be small, but they have big and devoted hearts. Last year, they featured productions of two very endearing and unforgettable installments of the Laramie Project. Five stars!
The Seeing place theater rendition of "Boy Gets Girl" delivers excellent Material, strong performances from the cast. The opening night performance was well executed. The production is wonderfully cast and the actors inhabit their roles with ease. John D'Arcangelo gives an interesting, humorous and heart warming interpretation of Les Kennkat. Einar Gunn and Brandon walker give strong textured and layered performances as the coworkers and protectors. Virginia Gregory gives a believable serious version of an NYPD detective and Daniel Michael Perez and Emily Newhouse are fine in their respective roles which facilitate the disturbing story. Erin Cronican in particular portrays her lead character Theresa with an effortless mastery and empathy drawing the audience's concern into the dark, well written excellent storyline which is very relevant to the social gender questions and dangers of modern relationships. Definitely worth checking out. I look forward to seeing more from this talented group of actors in the future.
The show was outstanding. I didn't know what to expect before I purchased the ticket, but I am glad I did. This is one of the best Off Broadway shows I've ever seen, I just purchased a ticket for their other show Boys' Life. It was truly an amazing performance, Bravo!!!
A disturbing look at an issue that people generally make fun of - stalking. It is more than just someone following you around - it's psychological terrorism, primarily aimed against women. The biggest horror is that the authorities can't do much about it until the victim becomes a dead victim. While not having an intermission makes this play physically difficult to sit through (especially if one needs the bathroom), it is understandable not to have one, as stalking is steady, each action getting more upsetting. Other plays, Act I would end on some sort of heightened emotion, and then a denoument in Act II. This is steadily growing terror with no satisfying resolution because that is the nature of the crime and how it is handled. Despite the characters being initially pegged as predictable archetypes, they show themselves to have layers over the course of the show. This play will start many conversations, but is definitely not a date-night entertainment.
