  Landladies at Northlight Theatre


Northlight Theatre
9501 Skokie Blvd Skokie

Self-made landlord Marti and her new tenant Christine strike up a complicated relationship in this compelling world premiere. Despite a tentative friendship, neither can afford the luxury of forgetting her own best interests. Faced with impossible dilemmas of fairness versus kindness, honesty or eviction, these two women reveal the vulnerability as well as the ingenuity of people who know the value of having a home, and the threat of losing one.

Chicago Tribune - Somewhat Recommended

"...So you get a play here that is bringing up a crucial issue and, in places, you get some profoundly fine acting. What you don't yet get is believability: for example, the set, by Arnel Sancianco, is skeletal when the show demands either intense Chicago-style realism, or a richer symbolic environment. That hole in the floor has a use for the playwright - it allows her a window into the elderly poor without needing another actor - but it comes at a cost in terms of veracity. And Rothstein has yet to show us more context, more of a feeling of the cruel world outside."

"...Landladies main focus, however, is the relationship between the two ladies and their very different and yet similar lifestyles. The message about life decisions and how they affect our future is a universal message but delightful portrayed in this play."

Chicagoland Theater Reviews - Somewhat Recommended

"...Ultimately, a quality production can take a play just so far. There are two miniplays in "Landladies"-a two-hander between Marti and Christine and a threesome with the Poet injecting a scary edge to the drama. The playwright needs to integrate the Poet more organically into the narrative or save him for another and more suspenseful play. But the acting passes muster with flying colors."
