RECOGNITION / AWARDS

From Off-Broadway

The second of the three hit comedies produced Off Broadway under the title Power Plays. The author and his son originally starred as men waiting for equipment to do an unspecified job. The one in charge insists on doing a dry run inventory of the contents of the expected crates. The purely hypothetical assumes a wacky, sinister autonomy that transports them to a frozen wilderness.
REVIEWS

"Classic comedies...with subversive details that keep catching you off guard....The evening...percolates with actorly inventiveness and a willingness to pursue a warped logic step by step into the land of absurdity. Has a heady sense of discovery, of seeing prototypical situations being twisted and spun to the point of dizziness, of disparate comic minds bouncing off each other." - The New York Times, Read More

"...an enriching collaboration between veteran masters of off-the-wall humor." - VarietyRead More

"A giddy delight." - New York Post

"Hilarious as well as thoughtful." - The New York Daily News


Virtual Reality was originally produced at the Manhattan Theatre Club in New York City in April 1998 under the direction of Alan Arkin as a part of the collection of shorts, Power Plays.
