Review from Wendy Bass Scharf

Acting was superb!! The female parts were very strong, and done well. Loved Luna/Sam and her drunken ramblings. In comparison, the male actor paled, although he was very accomplished as well. In the first scene he was hard to hear, but that...continued

The acting was good, but the play just didn't really engage me. Great set, and use of the space.

This is a great show. The writing is undeniably sharp and funny, and the acting is spot-on. I particularly enjoyed the male lead, Michael Rubenstone. He plays a complicated character -- a self-involved artist/poet type who also happens to work...continued

“Smart…fine acting…Edlow’s dialogue bounces between razor-sharp and languid, creating a weird uneasiness…a female response to LaBute.” —LA Weekly, Go!

Description

Theatre Planners presents The Something-Nothing, a hyper romantic comedy by Fielding Edlow, creator of the “Best of NYC Fringe” award-winning Coke-Free J.A.P. Directing is Kiff Scholl. Racquel Lehrman is producing.

Set in the West Village, Edlow’s free-wheeling stagework wallows in the machinations of three lost 27 year-old narcissists who are enmeshed in a web of e-mails, poetic diatribes and gallons of Jim Beam. The audience is plunged into an unrequited love triangle between a drunken lesbian stage manager, Mr. Sensitive ponytail man and a raging people pleaser. The production stars Robyn Cohen, Annika Marks, and Michael Rubenstone.

Fielding Edlow, a native New Yorker, has had her plays produced/workshopped in New York and Los Angeles with Naked Angels, NY Stage & Film, PSNBC, Dixon Place, The Culture Project, NY Fringe Festival and Home for Contemporary Arts. Her full-length play, The Something-Nothing was recently workshopped at the Lounge Theatre with the Mineral Theatre Co. Her newest play, Admissions, was workshopped at NY Stage & Film with John Pankow. Her one-woman show, Coke-Free J.A.P., premiered at the 2001 NYC Fringe Festival and received the “Best of Fringe award” from Backstage. Its subsequent West Coast premiere, directed by Craig Carlisle, enjoyed a four-month, sold-out run at the McCadden Place Theatre.
