Synopsis: Two-time Tony Award-nominee, playwright and actress Claudia Shear reunites with acclaimed director Christopher Ashley to create and star in her new play Restoration. Shear plays Giulia, a down-on-her-luck art restorer from Brooklyn who receives what could possibly be a career-reviving job of "refreshing" Michelangelo's David in time for its quincentennial celebration in Florence.

NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"A really big man takes a very long bath in “Restoration,” the leisurely new comedy written by and starring Claudia Shear, and he’s not the only one who comes clean. In this girl-meets-statue story, Giulia (Ms. Shear), a lonely Brooklyn art conservator, lands the plum job of scrubbing down Michelangelo’s 17-foot statue of David at the Galleria dell’Accademia in Florence."

NY POST REVIEW:

"In "Restoration," her first major play since her 2000 Broadway hit "Dirty Blonde," Claudia Shear has written herself some lascivious, sexed-up action. "I wish I could lick you clean," Shear's character, Giulia, sighs suggestively to her Italian boy toy, David."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"Playwright-actor Claudia Shear made a hit at New York Theatre Workshop in 2000 with "Dirty Blonde," her fascinating rumination on the sultry film legend Mae West. She returns to the same theater with a meditation on another iconic sex symbol: Michelangelo's David. Shear stars as Giulia, an Italian-born, American-bred art restorer given to bluntly speaking her mind and losing commissions as a result. After surviving a scandalous lawsuit, she wins the career-saving opportunity of cleaning the gigantic sculpture for its 500th birthday. "

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"The opportunity to remove centuries of grime from Michelangelo's iconic statue of David gives an art restorer the chance to also cleanse her psyche and spirit in Claudia Shear's genial humanistic comedy Restoration, currently being given a brisk, yet sensitive production at New York Theatre Workshop under Christopher Ashley's direction. "

THE HUFFINGTON POST REVIEW:

" 1 0views Get New York Alerts * Share * Comments If you weren't in love with Michelangelo's David, before, you will be after Restoration, Claudia Shear's love letter to the world's most famous sculpture. Shear, who stars in and wrote this lovely, multilayered drama at New York Theater Workshop, addresses the power of art to restore and sustain the human spirit. A talented playwright, she's equally sensitive to the price of obsession. "
