THURSDAY, JUNE 17

 

 “Kate Walsh is a gifted stage actress. She delivers a stunningly nuanced portrait of a woman who comes to realize that some things like the notion of emotion defy communication.” – NY-1 News

“Stephen Belber’s small, ravishing play unfolds like an eloquent short story. In nimble strokes, Belber captures the uncanny way a chance encounter can reverberate through time. His delicate touch is matched by Sam Gold’s direction, and by Walsh and Sparks, who imbue the play with the rueful humanity it deserves.”  – The New Yorker

ATLANTIC THEATER COMPANY

MOIRA BUFFINI’S “GABRIEL”

EXTENDED THROUGH SUNDAY, JUNE 20, 2010

THE CRITICS HAVE SAID:
“A tense tale of wartime intrigue and romance makes for riveting watching at the Atlantic Theater Company, where Moira Buffini’s “Gabriel” opened Thursday night in a taut, superlatively acted production…the sheer polish, narrative dash and dramatic brio of “Gabriel” got my theater-loving juices flowing again pretty quickly.”  – The New York Times

Atlantic’s Gabriel New York Times review

Atlantic Theater Company’s American premiere of Olivier Award nominee Moira Buffini’s play GABRIEL opened last night Off-Broadway at The Linda Gross Theater (336 West 20 Street). 

“The climax of the theater season can leave a critic — and dedicated theatergoers — feeling a little bit dazed and sluggish. Although it’s by no means a ground-breaking work, the sheer polish, narrative dash and dramatic brio of “Gabriel” got my theater-loving juices flowing again pretty quickly.” 

An Assault on Hearts and Minds

THE NEW YORK TIMES – May 14, 2010

By Charles Isherwood
Just about the last thing you would expect to see on a New York stage today — or maybe want to see on a New York stage today — is a juicy romantic melodrama set during World War II. The musty attractions of the genre are best savored in the wee hours of the night, surely, when sleeplessness torments and Turner Classic Movies beckons. Or maybe in a downtown drag bar, where the plucky heroine is portrayed by a biological male outfitted with Joan Crawford shoulder pads.

And yet, improbable as it may seem, a tense tale of wartime intrigue and romance makes for riveting watching at the Atlantic Theater Company, where Moira Buffini’s “Gabriel” opened Thursday night in a taut, superlatively acted production directed by David Esbjornson. The ever-wonderful Lisa Emery, a New York theater treasure whose work is always worth seeking out, gives a performance of moving nuance and emotional truth as a British woman trying to protect her family from the manipulations of a German officer whose attentions she cannot afford to ignore.
