APPLE COVE OFF-BROADWAY REVIEWS
Opening Night: February 6, 2011
Synopsis: When newlyweds Edie and Alan King move into the gated community of Apple Cove, they trust they have found a safe haven from the chaotic world outside. But when lush and forbidden roses start popping up in their garden, they quickly learn that nothing, not even electric gates, can keep nature out. Especially one's own nature.
NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:
"A satirical cartoon about an America increasingly enfeebled by its fear of anything outside the sanctioned norm, Lynn Rosen’s comedy “Apple Cove” is part eco-fable, part “Stepford Wives” riff, part cautionary tale for a hermetic society. This play is many things, just not as funny or clever as it should be."
"In the eponymous gated community that is the setting for Apple Cove, Lynn Rosen’s Seussian approximation of reactionary America, everything’s regulated. Putting up an unapproved weather vane requires special dispensation (no wolves, only foxes), and saying “No way, Jose!” will get you scolded for speaking Spanish. So it’s a shame that such a sweetly cracked parable—Rosen has a real gift for cockeyed humor—falls prey to rule-following in its own turn."
"The story of the Garden of Eden holds endless fascination. Was Eve a lying temptress or a brave risk-taker? And was Adam really so passive, so easily lured by temptation? Playwright Lynn Rosen's winsome twist on the classic tale, an exuberant new comedy titled "Apple Cove," opened Sunday night off-Broadway at Women's Project's Julia Miles Theater."
"Fans of "The Twilight Zone" will no doubt be familiar with the premise: An outside force disturbs the peaceful residents of an insular community, only to reveal that the real threat to safety is the residents themselves. The well-trodden theme appears, worse for wear, in "Apple Cove," a new play by Lynn Rosen at Women's Project that combines camp with convention to little effect."
