Theater: Lucille Lortel Theatre / 121 Christopher Street, New York, NY, 10014

Synopsis: 

In the hazy aftermath of a wild campus party, dawn breaks on what appears to be just another day in the undergrad carnival that revolves around a circle of friends. But when morning-after gossip about privileged Davis and ambitious Leigh turns ugly, the veneer of loyalty and friendship is peeled back to reveal a vicious jungle of sexual politics, raw ambition, and class warfare where only the strong could possibly survive.

    Mapping ‘Whatever’ Lives

    Ben Brantley

    February 19, 2013: "Ow." That monosyllable may not be your idea of great dialogue. But as uttered by Zosia Mamet in “Really Really,” Paul Downs Colaizzo’s pitiless state-of-a-generation play at the Lucille Lortel Theater, it has my bid for one of the best lines of the season. This “ow” is the final word, and one of the few spoken, in the opening scene of “Really Really,” which opened on Tuesday night in an MCC production.

    Really, Really: A Curtain Up Review

    Elyse Sommer

    February 19, 2013: Grace and Cooper, as well as their fellow undergraduates at an unnamed American college in Paul Downs Colaizzo's Really Really, know what they want all right. If that calls for lies and betrayals, so be it. Maybe. . .hopefully. . . Colaizzo, who's not much older than his attractive looking but unsympathetic characters, has emphasized the worst case scenario in the interest of giving this otherwise depressing Me-I-Generation group portrait some plot twists designed to keep you from wondering if this play is as revelatory and edgy as it wants to be.

    Really, Really: Theatre Review

    Frank Scheck

    February 19, 2013: Judging by Really Really, 27-year-old playwright Paul Downs Colaizzo doesn’t hold a very favorable view of his generation. This drama depicting the aftermath of a sexual liaison at a raucous college party features wholly unpleasant characters doing and saying wholly unpleasant things. But there’s no denying the provocative impact of its portrait of what is derisively referred to as "Generation Me."

    Melodrama Is "Really Really" Unpersuasive

    Erik Haagensen

    February 19, 2013: It’s hard to fathom what convinced the estimable David Cromer to direct “Really Really,” Paul Downs Colaizzo’s ersatz, glaringly manipulative “Did it happen or didn’t it?” melodrama about contemporary college students, an obstreperous kegger, and rape, from MCC Theater. Colaizzo certainly has an ear for glib, profane dialogue, but it reveals precious little about his stereotypical characters, who need to stay that way so he can make them do what he wants. With a different cast and director, the show was apparently a big hit for the Arlington, Va.–based Signature Theatre. Well, so was “Glory Days.”

    'Really Really' is clever look at GenMe

    Jennifer Farrar

    February 20, 2013: Let's just hope that all the members of so-called Generation Me are not as selfish, opportunistic and venal as some of the characters in Paul Downs Colaizzo's deeply cynical play, "Really Really."
