Excerpts From the World Premier of "Last Night at The Carmine" in The 2015 International New York Fringe Festival 


NEW YORK THEATRE NOW by Nita Congress · August 21, 2015


Playwright and director Caroline Kelly Franklin has created an empathetic panegyric to the “Third Space” that fuels and facilitates our interactions. She underscores the universalism at the play’s core…profound and beautiful concepts


Sad and bittersweet, Last Night at the Carmine drives home the importance of community and of trying to bridge the untranslatable through human connection: a message that in these troubled times cannot be reiterated sufficiently.


Last Night at the Carmine raises a glass or two in celebration of the remarkable proficiency of New Yorkers to forge community within


A dozen characters…strut and fret, soothe and flirt, sob and flinch as the evening progresses and the end nears.



Charming vignettes… quirky cast of characters… Franklin succeeds at endowing the building with breath and a heartbeat… Franklin has a gift for sharp & witty dialogue… absurd and comical



HI!DRAMA, Kristin Hardwick


Entertaining with surprising twist…characters portrayed with style and vigor without upstaging each other… innovative blocking keeps audience engaged
