BWW Review: Dive into THE GULF – A Sexy and Edgy World Premiere at Signature Theatre
You have to hand it to Arlington’s Signature Theatre. Never satisfied to rest on laurels, the Tony Award-winning regional theatre is certainly a force to contend with in the Metropolitan DC area and has made its mark with a number of musical shows over the years.
Signature is also committed to presenting new, non-musical works, and their current production may have only have two actresses on stage, it could be another title that has a huge impact at other regional theaters and beyond.
Audrey Cefaly’s new play THE GULF is an exciting premiere to say the least. As funny as it is powerful, as tender as it is passionate, THE GULF reveals a pair of volatile lovers whose relationship is as sharp as a fishing knife – pointed and dangerous. As directed by Joe Calarco, the play is also a duo-de-force for the actresses who bring the love, sex and honky-tonk to a small fishing boat floating aimlessly in the Gulf of Mexico.
