Frankie and Johnny in the Claire de Lune

Blank Canvas
August 23-September 7, 2013

Bob Abelman

“Frankie and Johnny” is an unfiltered portrait of the ordinary lives of two average, middle-aged people.  It uses incidental music to facilitate the dynamic tension between the characters (a wonderful Kimberly Eskut and Doug Kusak) and to serve as a subtle soundtrack to the storytelling.  Sadly, the music is underutilized in this production and the devil is in the details.

Mark Horning

“Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune” is an adult comedy/drama that all married couples should experience.  It is a frank and honest look at the female/male relationship conundrum.  See it and discuss it as a couple and it may help open up your relationship to even farther possibilities.  See it with the one you love.

Christine Howey

This two-hander features plenty of McNally's famous wit and benefits from two strong performances and smooth, sensitive direction by Marc Moritz. But there is one huge disconnect that makes the entire play markedly less successful than it might have been.

Frankie and Johnny on the Clair de Lune isn’t mind-blowing, earth-shattering theatre, but it is well acted, and mildly entertaining.
