BroadwayWorld Reviews Cave Theatre Co.'s World Premiere Production of Divorce Party, by Lauren Wimmer

What we have here is a masterfully crafted show called Divorce Party, something so wacky but so rooted in the inward and outward complexities of life (as are so many absurd things) that it encapsulates life as we acknowledge it to be, but are not always so eager or able to share with others. Real, tangible life where the irony here is that everyone lives in an acknowledged fantasy - the worst kind of all, where you know you are falling and failing but can’t help yourself or do anything to change the circumstances. Six friends who come together to witness how “happy” their two recently divorced friends are is already a precursor to disaster, an epiphany waiting to happen because of how “happy” they truly are not. This is the best new disaster happening in the East Village, and from the ingenious plot to the messed up crew who make it all too real, you are absolutely going to love this show.

The New York Times: "New York Theatre Artists' Latest Muse: Donald Trump"

A few blocks away on St. Marks Place, the Cave Theatre Company recently ended a two-week run of the [The Resistible Rise of Arturo Ui: A Gangster Spectacle]. Between scenes producers showed video clips of Mr. Trump and afterward played the Queen anthem “We Are the Champions,” which has been a staple at Trump rallies. The Cave company used campaign-style promotional posters depicting a man in a Trump-like suit with a cauliflower in his lapel. One of their social media hashtags was #makecauliflowergreatagain.
