The Fall is a play that lingers on in the mind long after the show has finished and is performed to perfection by all of the cast. Well worth a watch.
Asides from the contemporary setting, the one thing that sets the NYT production apart from others is the sheer energy that all the performers exhibit. While allusions to West Side Story may sound widely incongruous, when one bears in mind the extensive use of choreography for fighting between two factions in this Shakespearean adaptation, it’s not such a strange comparison.
