An apocalyptic event in an LGBT Nightclub changes everything; love becomes hate, hate becomes love.

This show is sad, penetrating stuff...This is rewarding, powerful theater.

In commemoration of the one-year anniversary of the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Rogue Machine Theatre is presenting the world premiere of Katherine Cortez's In the Valley of the Shadow. This taut, gripping, and intensely moving new play is a powerful tribute to the lives lost that terrible night.

She digs into the many questions raised by this apocalyptic event. What happened to the patrons who escaped and survived – and to their family members and friends? What about those who were less fortunate? Who would engage in such a violent and gruesome act? And why? Answers to some of these questions may be elusive, and the play should spark speculation and discussion.

In The Valley of the Shadow is powerful theater, indeed...makes for an engrossing and emotional theatrical experience.

The show is cunningly cast with superb actors, four of whom double in strikingly different characters...The show benefits from an excellent creative staff, starting with smart, fast paced direction by Elina de Santos.

I have to say that this show misfired on every level for me. Painfully unfunny and inappropriate at times that made me feel like an adaptation of true events that is this derivative and careless is way too soon for a year-fresh memory and legacy of those we lost last summer. Really suffered from uncomfortable directing and being across-the-board miscast (some great actors just unfortunately stuck in the wrong roles). I would also love for someone to explain to me how a 2017 Katy Perry dance song would be played in what-is-supposed-to-be a 2016 nightclub?

There is not a wasted moment in the crisp 75 minute script. It is sure to be one of the highlights of the 2017 Fringe Festival.
