  • NEW YORK TIMES REVIEW OF How I Fell In Love

    Where Friendship and Love Find Their Common Ground

    Neil Genzlinger

    January 31, 2011: The latest example of the genre that might be called “successful television writer tries the New York stage” comes from Joel Fields, whose long list of producing and writing credits for TV includes “Ugly Betty,” “Commander in Chief” and “Rizzoli & Isles.” The play is “How I Fell in Love,” and it’s a pleasant enough romance. Just not a very ambitious one.

    How I Fell In Love

    Chris Kompanek

    January 31, 2011: Joel Field's delightful romantic comedy, How I Fell in Love, now at the Abingdon Theatre, plays out in 90 intermissionless minutes like an episode of How I Met Your Mother fused with some of the wittier philosophical observations from When Harry Met Sally -- which is not surprising, considering Fields has an extensive background in television. The snappy dialogue suits his slightly neurotic characters well as they tell (and show) us how they fell in love.

    How I Fell In Love

    Ron Cohen

    January 30, 2011: The conventions of romantic comedy get a bright retooling and a handsome production in Joel Fields' "How I Fell in Love." Charm, smarts, and delightful performances make the familiar terrain seem suddenly fresh.
