The Reviews Are In …
“Borscht Belt humor and the theater of the absurd have a lot in common. To test this assertion, catch Schoolhouse Theater's fantastic revival of Murray Schisgal's 1964 comedy Luv. Meant to get under your skin, it's a dizzying existential romp that turns uncertainty, pain and fear into yuks.
Schisgal … suspects life would be hopelessly bleak if we couldn't laugh at our own ridiculous, crazy behavior.”
John P. McCarthy, The Journal News, June 5, 2014
“At the Schoolhouse Theater, two old college friends help each other find true ‘Luv’. Happily, the director, Pamela Miller Kareman, has chosen to go whole hog with physical comedy. The actors, all Schoolhouse Theatre veterans, do a lovely job. We want these three neurotics to find happiness, although the point is that they never will.”
Anita Gates, The New York Times, June 8, 2014
“So what happened to comedy in the 1960's? [It] went bananas along with the rest of the world. One of the first examples of this new wave … was Murray Schisgal's Luv, written and set in 1964. Under the able and inventive direction of Pamela Moller Kareman at The Schoolhouse Theater in Croton Falls, it's funny and appropriately spacey. Perlmutter is a super mench, Mayer is a tragic clown ready to step into a production of Waiting for Godot and Cassavale is a sharp delight as a lady who may or may not know what she wants.”
