Danny and the Deep Blue Sea is a gritty romance by Oscar-winning screenwriter (Moonstruck) and Pulitzer-winning playwright (Doubt) John Patrick Shanley. In a rundown bar in the Bronx, two of society's rejects, Danny and Roberta, strike up a conversation over their beers. He's a brooding young man who resorts to violence before reason. She's a divorced, guilt-ridden young woman whose troubled teenage son is being cared for by her parents. When they come together, the result is a morbidly humorous, savage and vulgar fairy tale about a frightening but incredibly fascinating relationship. Perhaps together they can escape from the violence that has defined their lives and find peace in each other's arms. Learn More

I took my two teenagers to see this performance and we all thoroughly enjoyed it. The psychological and emotional twists of the love triangle were amusing and we all had our favorite scenes. For such a simple set and small cast, they really made of the most of it. I would recommend this play to a friend.

It was kind of funny and a little slapstick. Left after the first half because my husband was getting twitchy (it was hot in there). You have to be a theater buff to appreciate it and we're not that sophisticated. Good effort, though.
A comedy by Murray Schisgal
Directed by Richard T. Orlando
Trapped in a loveless marriage, Milt hopes to wed another woman, but his wife, Ellen, won’t grant him a divorce. But Milt’s solution — to match Ellen with his suicidal college friend, Harry — proves to be hilariously disastrous for all involved. Murray Schisgal’s imaginative 1964 comedy, which was well received in its original Broadway run, now comes to the Olinder Theatre.
