Blind date: perhaps the two most cringe-inducing words in the English language. And when you watch the story of Becky Shaw , the latest theatrical brain child of Obie Award-winning playwright Gina Gionfriddo, youll cringe right along with the characters onstage. A Pulitzer Prize finalist and smash hit that premiered Off-Broadway earlier this year, Becky Shaw watches two adults struggle through a most unfortunate evening that includes an unexpected visit to the police station, a failed orgasm and many more calamitous surprises. Bring a date to the comedy thriller The New York Times called as engrossing as it is ferociously funny.
