It was OK...not great. Performances were just exaggerated (for-effect)recitals of her monologues, with no attempt to try to imitate her style or physical behavior. Very charitable audience (packed with friends of the cast?). Lots of forced...continued

It was a fun romp for the most part. I didn't really get why doing the French Lieutenant's Woman in Farsi was supposed to be funny.

Check out Goldstar member reviews for Streep Tease during its run.


Rave reviews across the board from theater critics & theater goers alike have greeted Streep Tease since its inception.  During its year and a half sold out run at the Bang Improv Theater and a special engagement in New York City at Joe’s Pub at The Public Theater, Streep Tease has received critical acclaim from the LA Times, the LA Weekly and Daily Variety.  Original and outrageously funny to the delight of audiences in LA & NYC, the show has developed a life of its own.  “With the release of Meryl Streep’s latest film The Iron Lady in which she portrays Britain’s former Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, we have been given a wealth of new riches, providing fresh new material and inspiration for the show,” says Cruz.  “Over the last few months, I’ve been deluged by requests from the show’s fans as well as friends and professionals in the industry to keep the show running.”                   

An homage to one of our most popular and enduring actresses, Meryl Streep’s prodigious body of film work serves as the inspiration and fascination for Streep Tease, an all-male cast’s re-interpretation of some of the revered actresses’ most iconic scenes.   In addition to The Iron Lady, included are monologues from The Devil Wears Prada, Out of Africa, Silkwood, The French Lieutenant’s Woman, Doubt, and The Still of the Night, among others. Though drawn from the dramatic and comedic ‘Canon of Cinema Streep,’ all of the scenes evolve into a hilarious, outlandish, kooky and sometimes campy romp through Streep’s film repertoire.
