BWW Reviews: Fast and Furious Fun at Trinity Rep's A FLEA IN HER EARBWW Reviews: Fast and Furious Fun at Trinity Rep's A FLEA IN HER EAR
by Robert Barossi - Apr 13, 2015

Door-slamming farce can be a tough beast to tame. There's often so much going on, so much quick-moving action, doors opening and closing, characters literally running from place to place, that it can easily devolve into a confused mess. And there are usually so many witty retorts and double entendres, also often delivered very quickly, that they can sometimes be missed altogether. Luckily, in the hands of Trinity Repertory Company, A Flea in Her Ear by Georges Feydeau, is handled with near-perfect precision. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Trinity Rep Ends Fiftieth Season with Uneven A LIE OF THE MINDBWW Reviews: Trinity Rep Ends Fiftieth Season with Uneven A LIE OF THE MIND
by Robert Barossi - Jun 3, 2014

As the summer arrives, and many theater companies either end their season or switch to lighter, summer-friendly fare, one can look back and reflect on the theatrical offerings of the past year. There have without doubt been many weighty, dark, serious and thought-provoking plays on our area stages during fall and winter. Trinity Rep adds its own heavyweight into the final rounds of the season with their production of Sam Shepard's A Lie of the Mind. Like much of Trinity's fiftieth season has been, it's a show that is uneven and, arguably, an underwhelming experience in the final analysis. Like many of the other recent similar theatrical offerings, it is also a show that is at times unquestionably riveting and spellbinding. (more...)

Trinity Rep brings its 50th anniversary season to a close with Sam Shepard's A Lie of the Mind, directed by Brian Mertes in Trinity Rep's Dowling Theater from May 29-June 29, 2014, considered by many to be a modern masterpiece of American familial dysfunction. Brimming with enormous vitality and humor the play asks us to look deeper into the human heart and the destructive power of love. Two mid-western families are joined together by marriage and torn apart by a life-changing incident. "Sam Shepard is surely the only dramatist alive who could tell a story as sad and frightening as this one and make such a funny play of it without ever skimping on its emotional depth,' The New Yorker asserts. Tickets are on sale now at www.trinityrep.com, by calling (401) 351-4242, or at the theater's box office at 201 Washington St., Downtown Providence. (more...)
