What Is the Story of Old-Fashioned Prostitutes?
Old-Fashioned Prostitutes provides the audience with snapshots from the memory of Samuel, who becomes enamored by an elusive coquette named Suzie. However, the show does not tell a linear story, and it is up to audience members to interpret the plot as they see fit.

Critics' Reviews

"This show is squarely for those who have always salivated over Foreman’s work and not for those uncomfortable with having no clue what’s going on."

Review by Matt Windman from AM NY

"'Prostitutes' is impeccably turned out, using Foreman's signature stark colors (reds and blacks are always favored) and inventive lighting and sound design to fill in a disconnected story about a man...who orbits a coy coquette."

Review by Jason Clark from Entertainment Weekly
