1993., Actor’s Theatre of Louisville


“ ‘Simone’ is likely to be top entry in Actors’ festival…Kaufmann’s multi-layerd i_simoprobe into the half-century relationship of philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre and novelist Simone de Beauvoir is a gem. (…) Director Laszlo Marton gives the play a crisp delivery that allows the audience lose itself in the witty interplay. “

The Tribune, 3 March, 1993Dale Sandusky

“What a witty and provocative evening’s entertainment is Shooting Simone, the second production in this season’s Humana Festival of New American Plays, at ATL. (…) The cast, as directed by visitor Laszlo Marton is superb with Janni Brenn and Fred Major(…). Shooting Simone is a very strong second production in this year’s festival at ATL.”

KY Standard, 11 March 1993. Fred Allen

“Lynne Kaufmann’s ‘Shooting Simone’,an examination of a menage a trois between Simone de Beauvoir, Jean-Paul Sartre and a wanna-be femme fatale, deligted the majority but offended a few purists.”

Los Angeles Times, 25 March 1993Richard Stayton

A play about a couple of philosophers and their lifestyles? No-Doz time, right? Not in San Francisco playwright Lynne Kaufman’s comedy Shooting Simone, the best of the class at 1993’s 17th annual Humana Festival at ATL.
