The Bull's Fool For Love

This is the last weekend to catch The Bull's pulp revival of Sam Shepard's Fool For Love! You're a fool if you miss it!

“This pulp revival fires on all cylinders...Director Katherine Krause infuses a clearly comic tone into the piece…She gives us a whip-smart version of the classic, having the actors deliver their lines as if swallowing razor blades.” –Deirdre Donovan, TheatreScene.net

“The Bull’s pulp revival of Sam Shepard’s Fool for Love is at once brutal, hilarious and irresistibly sexy...Shaffer and Bender’s chemistry is palpable...Brilliantly directed by Katherine Krause, whose careful hand gives the erotic fight scenes (choreographed by Dan Zisson) their weight and purpose.” –Laura Oseland, Show Business Weekly

“Kevin Shaffer as Eddie displays a great deal of power and frustration…while Katie Bender as May gives off the air of someone truly broken.” –Mitchell Conway, nytheatre.com

“Martin (Jonathan Wilde) is the picture of adorable naivete in a messed-up, scary world, an outsider in his unassuming plaid button-down shirt, jacket and baseball cap.” –Jessica Kramer, Washington Square News

“One of the things that provided some interesting depth to this production was the creative lighting design by Christina Watanabe. She ingeniously took risks with surreal lighting choices...A thorough costume design by Tod Michaels, right down to the sweat stain running down the middle of Eddie’s back.” –Le-Anne Garland, Theatre is Easy

"The entire cast is fantastic, and under Katherine Krause’s direction Kevin Shaffer, Katie Bender, and Bill Weeden manage to be explosive without being melodramatic." –Karen Tortora-Lee, NeighborBee Blog
