Firefly Love

Athenaeum Theatre
2936 N. Southport Chicago

In Firefly Love, Maria goes on a journey to the homeland of her favorite playwright, Henrik Ibsen. She dreams of being inspired, but instead finds another woman who is identical to her. From the moment that she meets her copy on a funicular to Mount Floyen, she begins the journey to find herself. To aid her, she enlists the help of her best friend Lola, and together they follow the other Maria to the other end of the world. Something Marvelous presents Firefly Love, translated by Hector Garza and directed by Rinska Carrasco-Prestinary, at Chicago's Athenaeum Theatre.

Chicago Reader - Not Recommended

"...Christ guard my delicate soul from having to narrate fake cunnilingus in real-time, first-person present tense. That's not a play at all. That's not even play-by-play, since what "happens" fails to happen as described. That's just someone who would rather be acting talking to listeners who would rather be watching. That it goes on unabated for 90 minutes is everyone's misfortune, including Vondell's, who at least manages to endow her flood of bilingual narratorial verbiage with a certain crispness."
