Review: FAILURE: A LOVE STORY

A dark comedy, whimsical in nature with a touch of melodrama, Failure: A Love Storyhas a lot going for it: an audacious set, a script full of smart, snappy dialogue, and a strong cast. But as the humor waned in the second act, a lack of character development left me apathetic, ultimately failing to emotionally connect.

Set near the Chicago River during the early twentieth century, the story focuses on the three Fail sisters; their aspirations, their brushes with love, and their separate untimely demises (not a spoiler, literally revealed in the first scene). Read full review at The Art Mag.
