    Think Life Couldn’t Get Worse? Drop in on This Dismal Family

    CATHERINE RAMPELL

    January 23, 2012: Some people go to the theater to escape the struggles of everyday life. If you’re one of those people, don’t see “Bridesburg.”

    David Finkle

    January 10, 2012: Victor Kaufold's 70-minute play Bridesburg, now at the Gene Frankel Theater deals with love-hate relationships among a dysfunctional family -- a familiar subject for audiences -- but does so as well as any regular theatergoer might desire.

    Family drama no kin do

    Frank Scheck

    January 12, 2012: Bridesburg is a run-down neighborhood in south Philadelphia. If Victor Kaufold’s drama set there is any indication, you won’t want to go there . . . or to “Bridesburg,” for that matter.

    Bridesburg

    Paulanne Simmons

    January 7, 2012: Most people outside Philadelphia have probably never heard of the district of Bridesburg, a riverfront section of the city with a significant Polish population. So it’s hard to understand why playwright Victor Kaufold chose Bridesburg as the title of his new play about the plight of a poor working-class family living in that section of Philly.

    Bridesburg

    Suzy Evans

    January 9, 2012: Parent-child conflicts make for great drama. Everyone has parents, and it's not too much of a stretch to say that everyone has had some conflict with those authority figures. While Victor Kaufold's play is believable, it's not compelling. The piece has no inciting incident, and the show simmers, attempting to boil but never quite climaxing.
