LIC’s Chocolate Factory Has Some “Fun” With David Foster Wallace

Sara Krulwich/The New York Times

For all of its brilliance, there isn’t much about the work of the late and sorely lamented writer David Foster Wallace that screams “Hey! Stage me!” Reams of footnotes and liberal use of words like “existentiovoyeuristic” tend to snuff any performance potential. And but yet, Daniel Fish and the Chocolate Factory have given it a go with their A (radically condensed and expanded) Supposedly Fun Thing I’ll Never Do Again (After David Foster Wallace), a piece that utilizes Wallace’s recorded voice to speak Wallace’s words, while five actors run around the place doing calisthenics and winging tennis balls at each other. (Charles Isherwood, The New York Times)
