Made For Each Other - a one man play by Monica Bauer

 

Fico plays this story as if he were four distinct people, and at no point do you ever wonder who you’re looking at.  He has a gift of  using changes in his body language remarkably well – not just relying on vocal calisthenics or props to cue the audience.  Fico’s use of stance, tics, gestures and even habits give each character a uniqueness and to watch Fico transform from one to the other is a joy.   -Karen Tortora-Lee, The Happiest Medium

Below are links to online reviews of the World Premiere of A. R. Gurney's SCREEN PLAY directed by Jim Simpson at The Flea Theater! 

New York Times    "Gleefully partisan...deftly orchestrated...grin-making chutzpah...especially pertinent"
 
 - Ben Brantley
 
Theater Mania  "...it's John Fico who steals the show..."
 
 - Brian Scott Lipton
     

Off Off Online "A theatrical revelation.  Political satire at it's best... John Fico is wonderfully depraved...He affects a pitch-perfect Southern accent, a lecherous leer, and a masterful understanding of Gurney's satirical gift."

- Sean Michael O'Donnell

New York Cool  "The fundamentalist Christian right...is masterfully sent up by John Fico...Political satire has never been this much fun!"

- Frank J. Avella
