Theater Review: “What We Wanted”

January 8, 2017

“What We Wanted,” currently in a limited run, ending January 15th, at Clurman Theatre on Theater Row (410 West 42nd Street) is a compelling play that explores such issues as having too much, abandonment and certainly relationships, always a fertile field.

The drama does so with a talented, appealing cast, all of whom go deep with the characters created in David Harms’ work. Drew Foster is the director.

The cast features Steven Hauck as “Julian,” perhaps homage to Richard Gere’s character in “American Gigolo” who also “loves women.”

Alas this Julian is different but I believe both works tell us much about love, its depth and breadth, 36 years later, thousands of years later, a mystery. Mr. Hauck was truly captivating in his fine performance.

Elizabeth Rich as “Agnes,” the wife among the three lovers, Amy Bodnar as Sally, the third lover “joining” “Agnes” and “Jullian,” Kerry Warren as “Reggie” the daughter of “Sally,” and Brandon Espinoza, adorning a Cleveland Browns’ hat, all turn in compelling, fine performances.

It was great to get out and see “What We Wanted.” I strongly suggest you do the same.
