RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN
By Gina Gionfriddo
Directed by Sara Beth Hahner
In this award-winning new comedy, Catherine is a rockstar academic feminist and Gwen is a brilliant wife and homemaker; they reunite years after their grad school days, unfulfilled in polar-opposite ways. Each woman covets the other’s life, commencing a game of musical chairs – the “prize” being Gwen’s husband, Don! Throw in a mouthy babysitter and a mom who hands out wisdom in a martini glass, and you've got what The Boston Globe calls a "shrewd, incisive, thoroughly winning comedy."
The New York Times says it's "intensely smart, immensely funny."
Entertainment Weekly says "There's nothing more enjoyable than watching super-smart characters make exceedingly dumb decisions..."
