BWW Reviews: BREAKING BECKETT Will Forever Change How You Think About Improv Photos BWW Reviews: BREAKING BECKETT Will Forever Change How You Think About Improv
(7/19/2014) - One of the main functions of theatre is to make an audience think. In this regard, BREAKING BECKETT, now playing at The Institution Theater, succeeds. I will probably be thinking about this piece for some time to come. Be aware that there is NO intention to be funny here. Leave your preconceived notions about improvisation at the door.

Breaking String Theater Presents WE PLAY CHEKHOV: THE BLACK MONK AND THE BEYONCE, 8/14-24 Photos Breaking String Theater Presents WE PLAY CHEKHOV: THE BLACK MONK AND THE BEYONCE, 8/14-24
(7/16/2014) - Breaking String's We Play Chekhov includes two of Chekhov's masterful short stories adapted for the stage, presented as a double-bill in what will be the perfect summer night out for any theater-goer. The Black Monk (adapted by Kama Ginkas and translated by John Freedman) depicts Andrei Kovrin - a writer who is visited by an apparition in the form of a monk, dressed in black. The monk bears a tantalizing message: Kovrin's art flows directly from God. But when loved ones suspect a mental illness, this joyful chapter in Kovrin's life becomes a terrifying encounter with madness, megalomania and the mystery of artistic creation.
