First Love/Worst Love is a mood piece. An electric guitar played live onstage is backdrop to a series of vignettes drawn from Rebecca Cox’s short stories. The ensemble shifts from piece to piece in movement & vocal styles that are at once completely honest and absolutely abstract.
While the action may never drag you to the depths of heartbreak or to the heights of passion, Rebecca Cox’s poetry filters through the air to your ears, leaving an impression of the characters in the author’s world.
I sat and pondered the answer to the question, “What will I do differently next time?” Before I knew it, the play was over, having passed through me like a wave. Makes me want to see it twice!
Bravo to Director Julie Civiello for creating an expertly crafted world onstage. Check it out, Fringe!
