Following the show, you are welcome to meet Mark Blum, toast his performance and discuss the show at the home of Janet Falk and Mickey Rindler.

We look forward to a memorable evening.
The Model Apartment was described by the NY Times reviewer as:
... the first (and first-rate) New York revival of a very fine playwright’s masterwork, it’s important that you find the time. Max and Lola, you see, are going to make one of the most horrible chapters in world history feel very real and personal to you, though at first you won’t have a clue that this is what they’re doing...
... it has been directed with care by Evan Cabnet, with acting to match by the four-member cast of Mark Blum and Kathryn Grody (as Max and Lola), Diane Davis and Hubert Point-du Jour....
