BWW Review: Good Things Come In Three's with American Bard's VISIONARY VOICESBWW Review: Good Things Come In Three's with American Bard's VISIONARY VOICES
by Kristen Morale - Feb 19, 2017

Directed by Aimee Todoroff and Tonya Pinkins and now in performances at the Gloria Maddox Theatre, Visionary Voices begins with Susan Glaspell's Trifles, followed by Marita Bonner's Exit: An Illusion and ending with Glaspell's The People - three wonderful plays that are more engaging and poignant in their single acts than many full length shows ever have the opportunity of being. All three plays take place at or near the start of the twentieth century, craftily combining themes as relevant today as they were then - collaborating with suspenseful plots, troubled characters and questionable motives that, when put together, show just how clever Todoroff and Pinkins are. In both the structure of this show as a whole and the effect it has on the audience, the truth here is that Visionary Voices is more than a statement - it is definitely a production worth your time.

BWW Reviews: Flux Theatre Ensemble's ONCE UPON A BRIDE THERE WAS A FOREST Combines Fairy Tale Troupes, 21st Century ReferencesBWW Reviews: Flux Theatre Ensemble's ONCE UPON A BRIDE THERE WAS A FOREST Combines Fairy Tale Troupes, 21st Century References
by Rachel Weinberg - Dec 9, 2014

Once upon a time there was a play that showcased fairy tale motifs and iPhones, dollhouses and GPS directional systems. This is Flux Theatre Ensemble's production of Kristen Palmer's world premiere play "Once Upon A Bride There Was A Forest," now running at the 4th Street Theatre. The logic behind the odd juxtaposition of these parallel universes remains a puzzle to me, as does the rest of the play's content. With direction by Heather Cohn, however, the ensemble in Flux's production manages to surpass the bizarre material that they are tasked with performing. (more...)
