BWW Reviews: LES MISERABLES Ignites Portland Players' StageBWW Reviews: LES MISERABLES Ignites Portland Players' Stage
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold (Maine)

(9/29/2014) - Portland Players takes an adventurous step in opening its season with a grand production of the beloved Boubil-Schonberg classic, LES MISERABLES. Assembling a large cast and mounting an impressive staging, this eighty-six year-old company delivers a performance of passion and heart, if not perfection. And yet the flaws which emerge - sometimes the result of direction or casting, but mostly by-products of the limitations of the theatre space - cannot dim the impact of the performance.

BWW Reviews: Portland Stage Presents Probing and Poignant BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRSBWW Reviews: Portland Stage Presents Probing and Poignant BRIGHTON BEACH MEMOIRS
by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold (Maine)

(9/28/2014) - Portland Stage opened its 2014-2015 season with a probing and poignant production of Neil Simon's Brighton Beach Memoirs, the first of Simon's so-called 'Eugene Trilogy.' The 1983 autobiographical reminiscence tells the story of a Jewish boy growing up in a colorful, often dysfunctional extended family in Brooklyn during the Depression. That Simon's play retains so much of its original impact is a tribute to his gifts as a playwright, especially his ability to mingle humor and pain in the crucible of memory. Portland Stage has mounted an attractive, atmospheric production which owes no small measure of its appeal to Brittany Vasta's sprawling, multi-tiered set, comprised of small eclectically cluttered cubbies evoking the straitened family circumstances. Director Samuel Buggeln makes imaginative use of the space as he draws taut, expressive performances from each of the seven actors, who are all virtually note perfect in capturing the Brooklyn accents.
