    A Game of Musical Couches for a Couple in Treatment

    Daniel M. Gold

    February 9, 2012: Occasionally, a play that should die from its self-inflicted wounds avoids flat-lining — if just barely — because of a cast and crew applying furious life support. Frank Strausser’s “Psycho Therapy,” a comedy at the Cherry Lane Theater, is more entertaining than it ought to be.

    January 8, 2012: There are a few laughs to be had early on in Frank Strausser's new comedy, Psycho Therapy, receiving its world premiere at the Cherry Lane Theatre. But the play never really develops much beyond a single-joke premise.

    Psycho Therapy

    David Sheward

    January 7, 2012: If you want an empty-headed sitcom, stay at home and watch TV or better yet download a 30-second clip of one from YouTube. Either option will give you more substance and laughs than you'll receive after forking over the money for a ticket and sitting through the 90 minutes of misery at the Cherry Lane Theatre that is "Psycho Therapy." Frank Strausser's flimsy excuse for a play features hoary humor, one-dimensional characters, and broad staging. An early press release lists Alex Lippard as director, but a search of the program at the performance attended revealed no credit for direction, which explains the uneven pacing and shrill acting. Evidently, Lippard left sometime during rehearsals or previews and a much-needed objective eye was lost.

    Psycho Therapy

    Matthew Murray

    February 7, 2012: If the 1960s had never ended, perhaps Frank Strausser’s new comedy at the Cherry Lane Theatre, Psycho Therapy, would seem fresh, relevant, and even daring. A well-off middle-age couple can’t agree about whether they want to live together, marry, or have kids — or even what the ideal order of those events should be — and their joint consternation is compounded by the woman’s studly, young, and rich ex-boyfriend who just can’t let her go. And the cherry on top is that the therapist in charge of sorting out the trio's wacky entanglements is just as screwed up herself! If this doesn’t scream 1965 boulevard comedy, nothing does.

    REVIEW: Skip ‘Psycho Therapy’

    Micha

    February 8, 2012: “Psycho Therapy” is one of those lame comedies that might have seemed sexy back in the Swinging ‘60s, but now merely offers a lazy roll in the clichés.
