Change of Heart. (Review of Night of the Foolish Moon
Jul 2004, Stage Directions Magazine,
By Peithman, Stephen

The complicated dynamics of relationship are the driving force this month. Love, or what sometimes passes for love, is the focus of this month's recently released plays.

The title character of Luigi Jannuzzi's comedy For the Love of Juliet! is an actress who hopes to snag the lead in a new Broadway production of Romeo and Juliet. Serious about her profession, she finds herself having to choose between her muse and a rekindled relationship with her exboyfriend (and fellow actor), Alex. What makes Jannuzzi's comedy so engaging is that Joliet's muse, aptly named Romeo, is played as a character only she can see or hear. As it turns out, Alex also has a muse-in-training named Ginger, who takes a shine to Romeo. Alex can't see Ginger or Romeo. Juliet can see everyone. She soon sees through Alex's failings as well, and sends him packing by the end of the play. Jannuzzi's point is not that an acting career and a rewarding love life are mutually exclusive, but that honesty of purpose is essential for success in either. Two males, two females.
