THEATRE NOVA PRESENTS 

FORTUNE

by Deborah Zoe Laufer

This madcap romantic comedy is full of mishaps and mistaken identities!


Madame Rosa is looking for a new job. Typist? Astronaut? Anything would be better than being a storefront psychic who can actually see the future. And Jeremy is desperate. A nebbishy accountant looking for love, he stumbles into Madame Rosa’s to find answers once and for all. Directed by Carla Milarch, featuring Russ Schwartz and Josie Herman. The production team includes Paul Taylor (scenic), Jeff Alder (lighting), Genevieve Compton (costume), Briana O’Neal (sound/props), and Amanda Buchalter (stage manager).

All Thursday performances will be mask-required to provide a safe space for our immunocompromised patrons and those who want a higher level of risk mitigation. This policy is subject to change, following fluctuating local, state, and federal guidelines. Please check our current COVID-19 policy before your scheduled performance date.

PULP: ARTS AROUND ANN ARBOR
COMIC DUET: THEATRE NOVA'S "FORTUNE" IS A ROM-COM WITH EXPERT TIMING

"This has been a chilly, wet, slippery, snowy winter, so it’s a perfect time to warm up with a rom-com—especially with Valentine's Day around the corner. For Theatre Nova's production of Deborah Zoe Laufer’s Fortune, director Carla Milarch brings two talented actors together in a comical duet. It’s a good choice for Nova's tiny, sometimes cramped space. There are some lighting special effects, but most of the fireworks come from the actors who play two lonely people looking for love.

Laufer’s play is funny, nicely contrasting the two characters, who for all of their differences have a common need for love. ...this seems to be the right play, in the right month. Milarch, a veteran director and a playwright, works with two actors who are in step with each other and understand how to play off each other’s opposite personalities. The other presence is dynamic flashing lights when Madame Rosa has a vision and a super energetic rain storm. Lighting designer Jeff Alder adds an extra element that probably works a little better in such a tight space.

We know how the story ends—it’s a rom-com. But in winter, a rom-com seems to be what romantics need."   -Hugh Gallagher
