RE:Very Good Production of Shepard's Play

This is a very good production of of one of Sam Shepards lesser plays. Fool for Love, despite having won an Obie award as best play when it was first produced, is not really one of Shepard?s best. It mostly treads familiar ground, is hackneyed in spots, and isn?t as fully realized a work as might be expected of one of America?s premier playwrights. But even a relatively inferior Shepard play is better than most other playwrights? best, especially when the play is well produced. And here it certainly is well produced. The director and the entire cast deserve accolades. I have posted an expanded review of this play and reviews of several other plays on my blog
