BWW Review: Thrilling BEOWULF: A THOUSAND YEARS OF BAGGAGEBWW Review: Thrilling BEOWULF: A THOUSAND YEARS OF BAGGAGE
by Andria Tieman - Sep 13, 2016

The thought of seeing a dramatic version of the epic poem Beowulf may make many people cringingly remember the sweaty days of undergrad and trying to parse meaning out of Olde English while being lorded over by a condescending professor and at least one overly enthusiastic classmate who won't shut up about it. Or maybe that's just me. The good news is that Tritnity Rep's production of BEOWULF: A THOUSAND YEARS OF BAGGAGE is not only hilarious, but 100% accessible even to those who have never read, and maybe don't want to read, the book.  This play is half academic lecture--but funny, and half manic musical fever dream, which come together beautifully to create a spectacle of light and sound.  Punctuated by dramatic, towering sets and scowling warrior maidens, it feels like Mad Max meets Bladerunner set in a wholly new dystopia.  This is a play that is fully immersive and unlike anything else out there.  It's so exciting to know the basic plot of a story, but still be surprised with what comes next, and this production is unexpected and unique in the best way.

Genesis Theatrical Productions Presents EINSTEIN'S GIFT This AugustGenesis Theatrical Productions Presents EINSTEIN'S GIFT This August
by BWW News Desk - Jul 3, 2016

Based on a true story, German scientist Fritz Haber is renouncing his faith, fearing persecution from an increasingly oppressive and militaristic government. In this award winning play, Haber's friend, Albert Einstein, fears Haber's work has taken a dangerous turn. While Einstein sees science as a discipline which transcends national boundaries as a force for good, Haber's work has become a deadly tool of the state. Einstein makes a desperate and emotional appeal that will resonate for generations and define the course of history. With daunting forces arrayed against him, Einstein is prepared to risk everything; his life, his work and his reputation against a building storm threatening to engulf the world in war. Einstein's Gift begs the question, if you could return to a time and change everything, what would it be? (more...)
