|The first weekend is in the books and critics and audiences agree — Stupid Fucking Bird is a hit! As one audience member put it, “I couldn’t be more in awe of what these amazing actors have put on that stage. The company as a whole has put together a show that is fully fleshed out and real. . . GO SEE THIS SHOW!!!”
Peter Nason, in Broadway World, noted that “. . . this is the type of show that elevates theatre in the Tampa Bay area; it’s what TampaRep does best. Fascinating plays, brilliant scripts, all executed well. . . it’s a don’t-miss experience. Edgy, playful, well-acted, and best of all, intelligent. STUPID F**KING BIRD is one super-smart show.” (You can read his entire review here.)
Jospeh Parra points out that “Co-directors Connie LaMarca-Frankel and C. David Frankel have very carefully patterned this difficult play out beautifully, nudging us and letting us become instantly familiar and intimate with these characters and the actors as well. This is a true ensemble piece and no one person has the lion’s share of the workload and the actors are all yeoman of the guard and do fine work.” He’s got a lot more to say and you can read it here.
There are only 8 more performances — we must close on June 16th — so fly on over to TampaRep.org/Bird and get your tickets now!
