Meanwhile, audience members are on the edge-of-their-seats for this very adult rollercoaster. Leave the kids at home for this one.
"Very funny. He's a randy married lawyer with ideas. She's a kittenish office temp with an agenda. It's a slow night at the firm on a Friday in August. Girl in Heat is about that really familiar couple, vulnerability and trust.
Mr. Avidon, who has a glint in his eye and a slightly demented, toothy grin reminiscent of the French actor Fernandel, shows the fear inside the tightly wound Joseph. Ms. Leibert, with the more difficult part, makes Marilyn's self-revelation convincing." -- The New York Times
"Playwright/actor Nelson Avidon delivers edge-of-your-seat suspense in his one-act psychological thriller, Girl In Heat. Girl in Heat is a sexy, powerful psychodrama. Avidon spouts many clever one-liners, adding levity to an otherwise dark story. The brilliant performances are the most remarkable
thing about this 80-minute show. Robert Walden directs these two gifted
performers seamlessly, keeping everything flowing at a riveting, tense pace.
Girl in Heat is an intense rollercoaster ride filled with black humor." -- Show Business
"Nelson Avidon is a terrific actor and in Girl in Heat he has a breakout role. This is an edgy, smart, challenging play." -- Edward Norton
"The wonderful Cheryl Leibert is a torrent of inappropriate emotion." -- offoffonline
"Avidon's transformation at these moments -- lit an eerie red by lighting designer Hillery Makatura -- is extraordinary." -- Backstage
