by Anton Dudley
Directed by Stephen Brackett
A Production of Playwrights Realm
Peter Jay Sharp Theatre

Reviewed by David Spencer

The older I get and the more reviews I write, the less I feel inclined to give negative ones that will even inadvertently wound any of the participants, particularly the writers, because I know how much of your soul gets poured into the creation of a script. This philosophy is hardly a challenge to accommodate except for when you encounter a play that doesnt have substantial merit on any level. So perhaps the less said about City Of (by Anton Dudley, directed by Stephen Brackett, via the Playwrights Realm at the Peter Jay Sharp Theatre on Theatre Row, upstairs of Playwrights Horizons) the better. Its a little tone poem about the lives and dreams of disparate American characters intersecting during a trip to Paris. When I got home and my significant other asked what Id seen and I told her the title, she asked, Is it a musical? I replied, No, its a pretensical. Lets leave it at that.
