JULIA performance review Feb 17, 2016

When I came into the theater to grab the seat that I had reserved for myself earlier in the evening, it was taken. Laughing, white faces were sitting in my seat, and instinctually I knew not to raise a fuss, to find a seat elsewhere.

Performance Review: JULIA Feb 15, 2016

August Strindberg‘s play “Miss Julie”, written in 1888, is a story of the walls that exist between people. The walls between the young and wealthy Julie and her father’s valet Jean are palpable. Unlike so many upstairs downstairs stories, this story makes no attempt to break down these walls. Misogyny, racism, and classism are fiercely clung to. There's no sympathy, only lethal attempts to dominate. The actions and words between the two main characters, taking place in a single night, illustrate that these wall may appear to move but they can never come down.
