review - RAPTURE, BLISTER, BURN - Theatre Artists Studio

For more information on this production that runs through February 1st, click here.

"The highly acclaimed Pulitzer Prize-nominated drama, which has been making the rounds since 2012 at theaters throughout the country is now on stage at Theatre Artists Studio in Phoenix. Deservedly praised for its intelligent and brilliantly crafted script, Rapture, Blister, Burn should be seen if for no other reason than to witness its crafty and witty exposure of the haunting and daunting themes with which many women, not all women, across generations, wrestle. It is also an exposition, a likely unintentional spoof, of the self-indulgent, pseudo-intellectual, and confused prattle that sometimes poses as feminist scholarship. The elegance and depth of Ms. Gionfriddo's work lies in her avoidance of happy endings and shibboleths. Ms. Gionfriddo has delivered a substantive basis for thoughtful and provocative conversation" -Herbert Paine, Broadway World (click here to read the complete review)
