Genre: Drama
Written by John Patrick Shanley, Directed by Ariel Francoeur

The Seeing Place Theater, known for intensely intimate ensemble work,  extends their critically acclaimed production of John Patrick Shanley's brutal and romantic story of "Beauty and the Beast in the Bronx."

Due to overwhelming audience and critical response,  we’ve extended this production for a limited,  Off-Broadway engagement. Read what critics and audiences are saying: 
“Cronican and Walker get into the skin of their portraits,  to allow the universal humanity of their surface flawed characters to be perceived.”
“The moving power of this "Danny" stayed with me through to the next morning. The acting is terrific and The Seeing Place's dedication to excellent storytelling shines through.”
“The evening was, in a word, exhilarating. This is how theater ought to be!”

About the show: A man and a woman,  both lonely outcasts,  meet in a bar - in desperate need of a change. He is violent and possibly homicidal,  she is tormented and possibly suicidal; each is transformed by the love of the other. The New York Times suggested the play would be more appropriately titled,  "The Beast and the Beast". If so,  this is the story of two beasts fighting to accept beauty into their lives.  "One word frees us of all the weight and pain in life. That word is love." - Sophocles

About the Company: The Seeing Place Theater

The Seeing Place Theater is an actor-driven ensemble known for its intense and intimate work. We are forcefully committed to:

THE ACTOR'S PROCESS: Through robust table work and improvisation, we focus on honoring the actor's artistry in creating a character and building a story, which extends from rehearsal into performance.

ORGANIC STORYTELLING:Unlike other companies, we do not set staging (blocking) or cement our choices in advance. What audiences see is a group of actors "in the moment" - working off one another to tell a fresh story that is never the same night to night.
