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

It’s a life presented from a decidedly feminine persective, filled with a series of seamless anecdotes of which both genders can readily relate.
This is a genuinely funny comedy made all the more successful by Leslie Hardy Lloyd's prodigious command of the central character's perpetual recitation of the watershed, albeit mostly comedic, moments of her life.
Equally praiseworthy are the two remaining cast members of this tiny ensemble, Jerry Lloyd and Ambera DeLash, each performing various supporting roles with a deft comic aplomb.
Skilled execution of the simple yet creative lighting and sound design enhance the ambient effect of this modest but professionally staged production.
The theatre was undeservedly full of mostly empty seats on a Friday night. This lack of support for the phenomenal talent on display at our smaller local theatre companies is unacceptable South Bay!

This was my first experience with a Northside Theatre production, and I loved it.
The theater was cozy, the cookies were wonderful, and the script was brillant. I especially enjoyed the professionalism of the actors and the inventive way...continued

A uniquely funny, poignant play about a woman re-evaluating her life at a time of crisis, revisiting the choices she’s made and the people who have affected and influenced those choices. Written with both humor and candor, Karen Hoffman struggles to create a meaningful life while coping with crazy parents, inner doubt, marital strife, familial responsibilities and hormonal hysteria. A comedic tour-de-force!
Directed by Richard T. Orlando
