Reviews are in for Repulsing The Monkey's NYC Premiere
Updated: Oct 21, 2021
What a whirlwind! Repulsing The Monkey opened last month in downtown Manhattan and ran for two weeks. This site-specific production made incredible use of The White Horse Tavern, a historic bar sandwiched between skyscrapers in the heart of New York City's Financial District.
I was blown away from the experience from start to finish. I couldn't have asked for a more dedicated director, cast, and overall production team. Everyone put so much heart and talent into this show.
I'm thrilled to share that reviewers agree! Here are a few of my favorite quotes from our production's reviews:
Katzberg and Nagorny make the sibling seem real and very appealing, while their somewhat expansive dialogue infuses the realism with touches of resonant poetry. (One can almost hear the voice of Eugene O'Neill muttering in the background.)

... Danny and Janey are working through a family tragedy while contemplating the possible better life that just landed in their laps. They argue about nothing, bring up family history at inopportune moments, and ultimately support each other with a most convincing combination of resignation and enthusiasm.
