    In-Laws Are Core Issue for This Adam and Eve

    David Rooney

    February 15, 2011: 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.

    Lynn Rosen’s gated-community comedy tries to transgress boundaries

    Helen Shaw

    February 7, 2011: 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.

    Can't Regulate Emotion in Sunny Fable 'Apple Cove'

    Jennifer Farrar

    February 7, 2011: 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.

    Apple Cove

    Nicole Villeneuve

    February 6, 2011: 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.
