  • NEW YORK POST REVIEW OF Chimichangas and Zoloft

    ‘Zoloft’ will give you a lift

    ELISABETH VINCENTELLI

    June 4, 2012: Don’t expect anything groundbreaking from “Chimichangas and Zoloft.” Fernanda Coppel’s play may be new, but its themes are well-worn: girls coming of age, sexual identity, philandering husbands and depressed wives. But the Mexican-American writer, only 26, brings lively energy — and a couple of nice twists — to situations we’ve seen a million times before. She treats all her characters, no matter their faults, with sympathy. And refreshingly, the show takes place in a milieu we rarely see on local stages: Mexican-American middle-class families in LA.

Seconds after the lights come up on the new Off Broadway play Chimichangas and Zoloft and before anyone says a word, a resounding fart echoes through the theater, thus setting the tone for this hard-to-digest production.
