Some Quotes:

Playwright Mike Folie and the New Jersey Repertory Company have a surefire hit in Folie's "Lemonade".... The four actors are brillian, with Faulk (Carl) perhaps the brightest of the bright as a self-centered ladies man and blowhard who gets exactly what he deserved. Benningfield, as the "Lemonade" wide-in-jeopardy -- and one of the NJ Rep Company's leading ladies -- gets it just right as the spurned but ultimately triumphant wife. Dorian (Betsy) gets everything right too as the other woman, who winds up with better than she deserves. And Masur, as Jim, expertly carried the weight of the noble man in an ignoble situation. Director Evan Bergman brings a wealth of off-Broadway credits to this sparkling, not to be missed production of "Lemonade."

The young cast projects a breezy likeability... This is especially true in the case of Bruce Faulk as Carl. His breezy aggressiveness makes Faulk likeable while rendering his Carl overly obnoxious. Quite a dichotomy here. Ben Masur as Jim and Dana Benningfield as Jane are especially appealing and generate a surprising amount of chemistry. Benningfield is an ideal Jane... Stephanie Dorian captures the confidence, toughness, aggressive sexuality and neediness of Betsy. It is an especially well nuanced performance. Director Evan Bergman keeps everything moving along brightly and breezily. Jo Winiarski's handsome all-purpose set provides several comfortable playing areas on two levels. Patricia E. Doherty provides attractive costumes. Jeff Greenberg's lighting is appropriately bright and crisp.

"Lemonade" is a sweet treat... a clever comedy that explores love and relationships in today's complex society... The performers, all members of the Actors' Equity Guild, do a fine job. The characters can come across as sensitive but selfish; cynical yet tender; or manipulative but honest.
