Our December production of Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury at The Brick’s Fight Fest was a wild success – so much though that we’re moved to present a “remount” (ahem) later this month. We were thrilled by the critical response to the show, so in order to whet your appetites, here are some of the great quotes we received.
“This show is worth checking out for the costumes alone—sparkly, hairy, vibrant realizations of a world without rules, designed by Julianne Kroboth. But the actors’ spot-on, endearing performances are what make this show thrive. Although they have no dialogue, they bring fantastic creatures to life."
--Time Out New York

“In Lewonczyk’s play, Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury, anything goes, but you can be sure it’s done with finesse and delicately choreographed fight scenes. Not one character fell flat and by the end of the show, all the actors had a good reason to stand tall.”
--New York Press

"If epic animal battles, extensive monkey humping, and overall extreme silliness are what you've been craving, then head over to the Brick Theatre for Craven Monkey and the Mountain of Fury... The playfulness on the part of the team of monkey/creature-actors makes this show all the more fun. Maybe we can see a little of ourselves in this story of a simple monkey humping and battling his way through this crazy world."

“A dirty joke slips into poetry… the nonverbal cast stomps home a timeless semaphore of love, striving, and projectile poop. In the elegant interplay and affirmative physicality of “Craven Monkey”’s considered slapstick is a vision of passionate impulse bestowed with purpose, and essential conflict tamed as art.”
