Yonkers and Auspitzs both did a phenomenal job delivering their quipy lines and low blows.
Yonkers in particular shined with her presence and heartfelt delivery. Her heartbreak and determination could be felt in the face of her exes’ meathead mindlessness.
While Auspitz had the challenge of humanizing an utter ass of a man, he did so with great care and consideration. Through repeated dialog of aggression, condescension and witty taunts, Auspitz found moments to peel back his character’s defensive layer and allow the tenderness and true emotional subconscious to seap through. Ultimately, Auspitz’s comedic timing and charm carried his character through repeated blunders into possibly a redeemable man.
What I didn't like
I would have liked to see a few more moments where we understand why the couple got together in the first place!
My overall impression
MORNINGCOFFEE is a funny play filled with heartache and melancholy. It follows a complicated and bitter sweet relationship between two exes as they finalize their breakup and who will be moving out of their shared apartment.
