WHAT THE PRESS IS SAYING ABOUT>
OFF-NIGHT REPERTORY THEATER
production of Address Unknown does justice to writer Kathrine Kressman's
piece, now translated into ten languages and made into a film. Highly
IN ROME -Paul Anthem, 11/12/2005
"[With] Zapping, Gaby Ford's Off-Night Repertory theater is back in
full hilarious swing. This season features a zany collection of sometimes
histrionic, sometimes absurd and always laughable metropolitan sketches."
"The standard of "Mere Mortals" is as high as one might hope to see
on any stage in London or New York...If Gaby Ford and her multinational
team of actors can treat us to this standard every season, then the
theatre in Rome, English-speaking or otherwise, will have gained a new
"A rare cultural and successful event featuring talented actors..."
"A fiercely international group...that's breaking the box office of
the Colosseum Theatre in Rome"
"It has everything that you want from a sitcom, [including] the fluid
comedy that has made American theatre and television famous."
"An eclectic concoction of wild, wacky and wonderful pieces of
theatre which contain fresh and new material...The approach is very
tongue-in-cheek and aims to reach a brand new satire that one would
expect to find on the New York stage. The result is a delightful indulgence
in mad-cap humour that the audience clearly enjoys despite nationality
or language barriers."
"Choice of the Month!"
"The Big Apple and a repertory of often entertaining plays...a
small picture of the 'Human Comedy.'"
"...offering a unexpurgated slice of American life today."
"Five very contemporary one-act plays interrupted by interactive monologues
by a cast of enthusiastic and, in some cases, extremely polished performers.
Highly entertaining -- catch it if you can!"
"The [company's] aim, mainly successful, is to sketch a situation, a
character, a cultured dialogue with small strokes and yet not succumb
to the anonymity of the "fast food" theater of stereotypical Americans
that is quickly consumed, then tossed."
