Worth Seeing Twice Feb 11, 2012

Mariano Pensotti’s extraordinary production, El pasado es un animal grotesco, offers great rewards for multiple viewings. I was lucky enough to catch the show at the Public Theatre’s Under the Radar Festival in New York last month, and then again last night at On the Boards. I discovered treasures and insights tonight that I’d originally missed.

Carousel Feb 10, 2012

When I was in 6th grade, I was so hyped to go see Les Miz at the Playhouse Theater in Cleveland. Looking back, I'm embarassed by my Broadway phase (as are so many of us) but there is one very clear image that remains with me from that production: Valjean and Javert in the sewer system. Of course, the stagecraft gem of that show was the rotating stage, which to my 12-year-old brain was genius beyond measure. In doing a little YouTube research, I just figured out that during the sewer scene, the stage is not actually turning, just some gobo lights of sewer grates pacing across the floor.

Of Self-allienation and Other Monsters Feb 10, 2012

On a rotating round stage, we dive into the lives of four characters beginning on June 22nd, 1999.

Revolution Feb 10, 2012

Pablo receives a large shoebox in the mail that contains a severed hand. He puts it in the freezer, and for ten years mulls over its various possible meanings (and periodically freaks out). Vicky sorts old photographs and discovers that her father has a secret, second family. She begins to spy on him and, as time passes, enters a kind of secret life of her own. Mario is a fledgling songwriter, plays in a band with a girl drummer, dreams of being a filmmaker. Dana takes up acting, eventually landing a big part in a play called “Holy Land.”

Yes, it IS, isn't it? Feb 10, 2012

Yes, the Past is a Grotesque Animal.

Meaning, I think, you look at the past with a mix of strangeness, wonder, some horror perhaps, or a little distaste, or amusement; mostly, it is a being which feels completely Other, which only enhances the strangeness because, at the same time, you know you are connected to it.
