Further upheaval with his wife leaves him perched on the edge of recovery with an all-consuming drive to win full custody of his six-year-old daughter.

    Raw Bacon From Poland

    Ben Brantley

    June 7, 2017:

    Let fly with the virtual confetti, please. “Raw Bacon From Poland,” the poignant new drama that opened on Wednesday night at the Abrons Arts Center, turns out to be an unexpected celebration of a marriage of true minds. I mean the kind of meld that occurs when a playwright and a performer seem to blend into a hypernatural unity, making artificial words sound realer than real life.

    The writer, in this instance, is Christina Masciotti, a downtown dramatist of rigorous personal style whose following includes a lot of theatergoers who consider Broadway a wasteland. The actor is Joel Perez, whose résumé pegs him as a burgeoning Broadway baby, with plum musical parts in the original cast of “Fun Home” and in the New Group revival of “Sweet Charity,” starring Sutton Foster.
