returning this July for 2 performances only!
Susan is cautious and fretful, apprehensive and shy. She’s scared, okay, she’s chicken!
A one-woman musical about one woman’s lifelong love affair…
“An affecting piece.”
– The Village Voice
“These guys aren’t using the Fringe to launch improbable projects or careers; they’re workshopping a solid Off Broadway project-in-progress. The “tiny feats” of the title are the small victories that keep the perpetually scared Bernfield—phobic of heights, planes, people—not just among the “functioning fearful” but solidly in with the “pathetically high-functioning.” With help from a very capable backup band, she makes each fear pull its weight, emotionally and comically.”
-- Time Out New York
“Susan Bernfield's latest is exactly what it claims to be: a tiny feat, for Bernfield is captivating throughout, an Everywoman who, aided by Rachel Peters' music, denounces single engine Cessnas, the constant worry of being a mother, the neverending precipices of the world and its possibilities. The end result comes across like a Sondheim chamber musical. It's a very winning performance, and a very winning play."
– New Theatre Corps
"If the show were just a list of one woman's fears, it might be good therapy but it wouldn't necessarily be good theatre. And TINY FEATS is really terrific theatre. Bernfield has a sharp ear for the telling detail and the clear-eyed honesty to turn those powers of observation on herself. She's still trying to work out the eternal battle between living in fear and just letting go, right up to the moment in which she stands before us singing about it, and that internal struggle is both funny and touching."
