Stein | Holum Projects: The Wholehearted [New York premiere]
Spectators have a ringside seat for this “dazzling tour-de-force” (Los Angeles Times), a blood pumping revenge tragedy and intimate tribute to lost love. Once a championship boxer, Dee Crosby was taken down in her prime by her own husband. Now that Charlie is freshly released from prison for her attempted murder, Dee is hell-bent on revenge, no matter the cost. But only Dee’s true love, Carmen, can provide her with redemption. By turns “potent and enigmatic” (San Diego Union Tribune) and “boldly arresting” (Boston Globe), THE WHOLEHEARTED is an unsettling ride through the human heart.
“A fast-jabbing fantasy where sweaty physicality rubs up against shape-shifting surreality, with a little country music thrown in. [Holum] gives a clear and lithe performance, and the production design is excellent.”
– Laura Collins-Hughes, “Review: In ‘The Wholehearted,’ Old Wounds Feel Angry and New,” The New York Times
