The Cortez Method
|August 29 - September 22, 2013|
"Rob Keefe's new play… shows us an America gone off the rails. Yelling, cussing, bloodstains, violence — despite a series of darkly funny moments, this is a play full of bubbling anger." - Orlando Sentinel
“It’s exciting to see something as fresh as “The Cortez Method.” This new play is part of the Harriett’s New Play Series. It has all the hallmarks of going beyond these latitudes, so you might want to see it now while it’s only an easy drive away.” - Brevard Culture
"The set, Bill and Sara's half-renovated kitchen designed by Robert Watts, is a spot-on recreation of a house in the middle of an episode of "Property Brothers," complete with sample backsplash tiles and test paint on the walls.” - Broadway World Orlando
“Mark Routhier and playwright Rob Keefe are exploring treacherous territory with the world premiere of this pitch-black comedy. They’re trying to lure theatergoers with an unknown script from a not-yet-famous author – and from what I’ve observed, their plan (like Cortez’s) might just be crazy enough to work.” - Orlando Weekly
"Saw the matinee today, wow, thoroughly enjoyed it. Great performances and what a chilling story.” - Sandy S.
