Hunter Gatherers is rockin LA

(We are nearing the end of my long string of self promotional blog posts. But not quite at the end!)

Furious Theatre opened their lovely production of Hunter Gatherers last weekend and it's has been tearin up Pasadena! YEEHA!

Check out these pullquotes compiled by he Furious folks:

“TOP PICK!... Bitingly hilarious!”
"A razor-sharp staging from Furious Theatre Company... With abundant irony and well-turned barbs, Nachtrieb's sharply crafted dialogue follows in Edward Albee's footsteps... Dámaso Rodriguez's relentlessly paced staging builds suspense with the visceral engagement of a cinematic thriller and draws nicely realized characters from the entire cast."

- Philip Brandes, Los Angeles Times

“CRITIC'S PICK...Savagely funny!”

"Combines the verbal savagery of vintage Edward Albee with the visceral brutality of Sarah Kane. In director Dámaso Rodriguez's sidesplitting yet thought-provoking L.A. premiere, the distinctive voice of a trailblazing playwright strongly resonates... The tight ensemble tackles the difficult material with intelligence and skill... This marvelous production is a fitting kickoff to Furious Theatre's graduation from Actors Equity's 99-Seat Plan to a Letter of Agreement arrangement, now offering substantially increased pay for its deserving actors."
- Les Spindle, Back Stage West

“Smart and funny...intense and hilarious!”

"A fine example of Furious's work—an impressively engaging production of an edgy new play."
- Sharon Perlmutter, Talkin' Broadway

“Blisteringly funny!”

"This landmark for the company is a wild night for the audience."
- Don Shirley, LA CityBeat
