Review On The Spanish Prayer Book


Stephen Fife

Writer, Non-Registered Critics


While all the actors acquit themselves well under the direction of Lee Sankowich, Blaize gives an especially detailed and nuanced performance. She pours every ounce of passion into the character and her conflict over whether to sell her sacred legacy or not. But all her hard work just underscores the fact that it is difficult to care about the outcome, especially given the way the playwright has set it up.

Steve is a 5-tool writer (plays, screenplays, novels, poetry, journalism) who has had 11 books published, 10 plays produced, and has written for the New York Times “Arts & Leisure”, Village Voice, New Republic, and many others. He is one of the few people on the planet who can lay claim to spending time with Lee Strasberg, Stella Adler, Sandy Meisner, Allen Ginsberg, Andy Warhol, and Rubin “Hurricane” Carter, as well as so many other extraordinary people who refused to color inside the lines. He is always on the lookout for the original and the incisive.
