The Rover

by Aphra Behn
Adapted & directed by Michael Goldfried


A dark whimsy pervades this story of sex and love as Willmore and his Naval buddies hunt for pleasures of the flesh – and get in far deeper than they ever intended.

“Michael did a superb job… He absorbed the essence of the play and kept the production so focused on its core that it was a complete success… When the production opened it was clear the actors owned their work, always the mark of strong direction. It was a huge popular success with our audience.”
Matthew Maguire, Director of Theatre Program, Fordham College at Lincoln Center
“Michael is a wonderfully talented and genuinely funny young American director… His taste is broad and excellent; his ability to work with actors is exemplary; his design sensibility is refined and exquisite… He will be a light in the American theater for many, many years.”
Oskar Eustis, Artistic Director of the Public Theater
