FORTUNE: a Quirky New Romantic Comedy about finding love
Written by playwright Deborah Zoe Laufer
FORTUNE is quirky romantic comedy about finding love: whether its in the cards (or not!) Maude is a 30-something storefront psychic who has given up on love. When Jeremy, a downhearted, love-hungry accountant, stumbles into her shop, she wrestles with fate and destiny.
"Fortune is heartwarming and, truly, a ton of fun."
"A quirky love story that teaches us to leave our comfort zone and open ourselves up to others."
"Fortune is full of snappy, Woody Allen-esque dialogue but also feels like the late-90's romcoms that everyone loved to watch while curled up under a blanket. The laughs are plentiful, but you also can't help feeling great sadness for Jeremy, the sweet affable guy who desperately wants to feel a little less lonely, and Maude, who's so cynical about life that she's stopped participating in it."
"Fortune carries all of the elements that Laufer's expanding corps of devotees love her for: blunt, beautiful, funny dialogue; an empathic insight into the aches, conflicts and dreams that make us human; a knack for revealing the hidden significance of our most trivial and foolhardy impulses; and a bold, death-defying willingness to face the awful truth and still wrap things up on a note of sweetness and hope."
"An off-beat comedy that's sure to keep audiences both fascinated and laughing as they watch the outrageous unfolding of an unlikely, quirky love story terrifically entertaining."
"Laufer's ear for humor and harmony in the clash of damaged personalities, are enough to suggest this slice of New York magical realism could have a decent life beyond the Bay Area." - Variety
"An old-fashioned romantic comedy, but it has a certain quirkiness about it. There are elements of those old RKO screwball comedies of the '30s and '40s in these scenes." Talking Broadway
