NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW:

"If Italo Calvino, Douglas Adams and William Gibson had gotten together, maybe become a little drunk, and decided to pull a literary all-nighter, the resulting collaboration might have had something of the flavor of John Jesurun’s “Stopped Bridge of Dreams.” "

THEATERMANIA REVIEW:

"To many theatergoers, John Jesurun's multimedia work, Stopped Bridge of Dreams, now at La MaMa, will come off as a confusingly soporific post-modern soap opera. But it may appear differently to those who view it as it unfolds at www.bridgedream.com as Jesurun also intends. "

NY THEATRE REVIEW:

"Stopped Bridge of Dreams, the new multimedia performance written, designed and directed by John Jesurun at La MaMa, is a hallucinogenic, sense-assaulting, dreamlike hour and a quarter in the theater. The Ellen Stewart Theatre has been arranged with tennis-court-style seating, with audience against two opposite walls and the actors and action in the center between them. The set is a long table with two different cloths covering each half (they seem to be complements of one another); bisecting the table is a wall or screen. Above the table are two screens on which are projected images—sometimes live video feeds, sometimes pre-recorded monologues, and most of the time ambient background footage of the airplane we're in flying through a night sky. At the sides of the playing space are a few items of furniture and costume pieces; a live camera operator and his equipment is visible at one end of the space. The cameraman and the actors shift location and occasionally change costume in full view of the audience; it should be a distraction but like all of the rest of the constantly shifting environment of this play (for the screens and the table are moved numerous times during the show by the actors) it is in tune with one of the main ideas of Jesurun's work, which is to keep us constantly caught up in a mutating perspective. Nothing is absolute or certain in this world."

THEATRE IS EASY REVIEW:

"A visually impressive multi-media production with a cryptic, abstract story about a whorehouse airplane."

BACKSTAGE REVIEW:

"In the 17th century, Japanese writer Ihara Saikaku began writing stories of the pleasure seekers of modern life, hedonistic consumers of art, entertainment, beauty, and sex. The tales became known as "ukiyo zoshi" or "floating world stories," a name that relied on a subtle play on words. The word for "floating" in Japanese sounds similar to the word for "sorrowful," a winking reference by Saikaku to the isolating, sometimes even tragic sentiments that hid behind the comic mask of the urban circus."

NY POST REVIEW:

"Though “Stopped Bridge of Dreams” is based on 17thcentury Japanese writings, its style couldn’t be more contemporary."
