THE CONVERSATION

Written by Francis Ford Coppola - Adapted by Kate Harris- Directed by Leo G. Farley

April 3 - May 4, 2008

"Leo Farley's direction - TAUT and RELENTLESS - Mark Symczak (set) ingenious, Stewart Wagner's lighting, stark" - "Mogentale's work is nothing short of extraordinary - his fellow performers...are superb..."
NY Theatre - Martin Denton

NY TIMES REVIEW
NY TIMES REVIEW "THE WEEK AHEAD"

“The pleasures of the production are many, from the uniformly strong acting, to the excellent script, well adapted for the stage by Kate Harris and directed by Leo Farley, to the sound design and the use of quaintly old-fashioned audio equipment, which throws the play’s relevance to our media-saturated age into sharp relief”
The New Yorker - April 2008

“This production is beautifully staged, well-acted, and successful in recreating the film noir feel of the film as well as the era in which it was first conceived. It’s a must-see for top quality entertainment.”
The Stage is the Place - April 2008

“Farley’s realization of the piece is terrific. …The pacing is tight and focused and sharp, and so are the performances. ..you will find much to relish in this exceedingly well-executed production.”
NYTheatre.com—Martin Denton - April 2008

“Just because you’re paranoid doesn’t mean they’re not out to get you. 29th Street Rep’s masterful production of a new stage adaption of Coppola’s paranoid thriller is just one reminder”
New Theater Corps - Ellen Wernecke - April 2008

“Director Leo Farley, and actor David Mogentale nimbly balance Caul’s heaviness by finding air pockets where the lonely, twitching soul years for connection. …Eight other actors join forces around him with crispness and vitality. This moody production marks a welcome return for a company known for taut, intense work.”
Time Out New York - Diane Snyder - April 2008

“If you park your memories of Hackman’s Caul and the film generally, you’ll appreciate and enjoy this “live” Caul and how director Leo Farley, a 29th Street Rep founding member, has created a production that somehow pays tribute to the Coppola film and catches its darkness despite the limitations of the tiny stage. Farley has wisely stuck to the 1972 time frame and made no attempt to update the technology, for this was never about gadgetry.”
Curtain Up - Elyse Sommer - April 2008

“With delightful acting all around and a story that, though difficult to follow on stage, is intriguing, it isn’t hard to see why the 29th Street Rep chose it as the production to spearhead its new season”
Show Business - Nick Breault - April 2008
