According to the Public, "Snapshots from an enigmatic fairy-tale in which Suzie, the elusive coquette, brings Samuel to his knees — from where he worships a life he only half understands, Old-Fashioned Prostitutes (A True Romance) is an expressionistic chamber-play that twists emotional heartache into a landscape of continual mental invention."

The production has costume design by Gabriel Berry and lighting design by Yael Lubetzky.

For tickets phone (212) 967-7555 or visit PublicTheater. The Public Theater is located at 425 Lafayette Street in Manhattan.
