A KICKBOX PAS DE DEUX!
It may well turn Adam Rothenberg into a matinee idol for women with blue-collar fantasies! Very touching and warmly acted.

In a role originated by John Turturro 20 years ago, Rothenberg is equally persuasive in Danny’s gradual lowering of his guard and in the brooding character’s tough posturing, his edgy physicality and moments of pierced exposure. After playing Stanley earlier this year opposite Patricia Clarkson in the Kennedy Center’s “A Streetcar Named Desire,” this accomplished actor seems ripe for wider discovery.
DAVID ROONEY / VARIETY
RIVETING! Few of Shanley’s plays hold the passion of this poignant romance. Adam Rothenberg and Rosemarie DeWitt inhabit their roles with in-your-face intensity!
Shanley’s breakthrough play is precisely choreographed by director Leigh Silverman in this touching revival. Rosemarie DeWitt and Adam Rothenberg expose the hearts of their characters with bristling vitality!!
