never enough, always enough Mar 31, 2012

by Kristianne

Only hours before taking my seat at On the Boards, I'd learned that a person very dear to me had died. Everything I did and saw after was touched by this news. To combine the angry agitation and the broken tenderness we feel in grief is a paradox. To live in fear of death is a paradox.

"See. This. Show. (A review of Mark Haim's x2)" Mar 30, 2012

by

By Elana Jacobs

A great first date, during which conversation flows naturally without a worry. 

A host who thoughtfully provides enough for his dinner guests to enjoy without micromanaging.

A walk home when you never question how much longer do we have?

Getting into a bath thats neither too hot nor too cool for that first entry step.

Fries With That Shake! Mar 16, 2012

by Eric Pitsenbarger

The story, as they say, had already been written. The predictable unraveling, eventual demise and subsequent iconic theme: Philandering husband gets away with murder. Noble, neglected wife looses it and everything falls apart. So obvious is the outcome, so ingrained is the pattern that you can see it from far away...it has it's own shape, it's own recognizable shade of black.

What Just Happened?!?! The Transformative Power of Michelle Ellsworth Mar 16, 2012

by Katie W

Last week, my boyfriend decided that we should take a break.  He did so without establishing any parameters for said break.  He is apt, as most men are, to go to his metaphoric cave and stoically assess his problems.  Women, on the other hand, are often impetuous information-gatherers in times of stress.

fEEding the Feedback Mar 2, 2012

by Leah Vendl

The conceptual line between audience and performers dissolves for me at the beginning of tEEth’s Make/Believe, the moment the performers crawl towards the audience through the thin line of light bisecting them like a CAT scan. Throughout the piece, the performers humble themselves in a way that makes my mind osmosize into the stage-space and forget that I’m “watching a performa
