A Modern Retelling of Dostoevsky’s "The Idiot"
"Propinquity Productions' 'An Idiot' nails everything I have always enjoyed about the works of Dostoevsky. Their modern retelling of the novel The Idiot succeeds marvelously in portraying the passionate, yearning, and often mad world Dostoevsky's work attempts to understand—Jeff Tabnick's excellent script even nails the occasionally bizarre and surreal narrative voice with which Dostoevsky tells his stories." - nytheatre.com
"Satire doesn’t get much better than 'An Idiot,' and theatergoers should not miss it." - Neighborhood NYC
