stream-of-consciousness style blog review Mar 21, 2009

This show reminded me of growing up, an always constant process. While watching the kids onstage, reciting lines they surely couldn’t understand yet or care about, it became obvious that this show is for grown-ups, not for kids. It brought back memories of being a kid, and that huge divide between kids and adults. Everyone over 16 or so was an adult, therefore a sort of enemy, and didn’t really understand.And now I am an adult and I don’t understand *them* anymore.

what's so easy in the evening, by the morning is such a drag Mar 21, 2009

I woke up confused, after a night of dreams delivered directly from City of Lost Children. When I went to sleep, I was feeling pretty good and had enjoyed, but not been terribly moved by, Theatre Replacement's That Night Follows Day. The show is like a Greek chorus without a plot, a technique which impressed, bored, mesmerized and released me (in that order). The 17 actors are no doubt talented and fully committed to their kid-ness, but one tiny girl kept distracting me with her strangely adult postures, haircut and intense stares.

That Night Follows Day Mar 21, 2009

Many thoughts ran through my mind during Tim Etchells’  “That Night Follows Day ”.   This is dense, rich material that I’m going to be digesting for a long time.   One thing is certain: I’ll probably never see children the same way, or forget what complex people they are.  

Random thoughts (spoiler alerts, etc.):    

Most of the time, it felt like the (largely adult) audience was on trial and the children were presenting their indictments.   Etchells has messed before with the typical theatre form in which people come

Theatre Replacement | interview snippets Mar 17, 2009

A few quotes from the interview with Theatre Replacement's James Long and Maiko Bae Yamamoto:

JL: We could never imagine doing a show like this, and then suddenly it was in our hands. And this script - you know, I think we try to do a lot of the things that Tim does with his writing in a lot of our work... So the opportunity to do a script of this caliber and call it our own with a bunch of kids from the city, it just kind of all came together that way.
