BWW Reviews: Bit of a Stretch Theatre Company's MYTHS AND HYMNS is an Artful Concert
by David Clarke - Aug 08, 2013

Imagine a darkly ambient realm where angular architecture rises from the shadows and is adorned with three half ovals curtained in sheer white fabric. In this simplistically austere setting, every surface is painted black and gives the impression of some ambiguous but wholly recognizable cabaret. Out of the ether, six shapes emerge. In an assortment of solos and group pieces, these figures sing intensely haunting and puzzling music. Some songs are rigorously jazzy and mesmerizingly chromatic, leaping through major and minor chords with seemingly crazed affectation. Other songs are tuneful and familiar, playing off of bluesy gospel traditions that are tinged with pop sensibilities. This is the world that Adam Guettel, most widely known for the 2005 Tony Award winning musical THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA, and Bit of a Stretch Theatre Company have created with the Houston premiere of MYTHS AND HYMNS.

30 DAYS OF NYMF: Day 19- Zapata! The Musical
by 30 Days of NYMF 2012 - Jul 27, 2012

With only a few exceptions, Mexican revolutionary liberator Emiliano Zapata is my favorite human being who ever walked this earth. I'm not alone in this assessment. John Steinbeck felt the same way. So do Bruce Springsteen and Tom Morello, Harvard educated lead guitarist for RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE. Like Nelson Mandela in South Africa, Zapata fought for the rights of his people with love. What a perfect subject for a Broadway musical! It sings, it dances, it speaks deeply to the human heart. (more...)

Review - Myths and Hymns & Broadway Ballyhoo
by Ben Peltz - Feb 11, 2012

When The Public Theater premiered Adam Guettel's Myths and Hymns in 1998 - under the title Saturn Returns - it was presented as a simple song cycle using chamber arrangements of pop, gospel and classical styles in a loose theme of exploring the human relationship to faith, utilizing traditional hymns and ancient myths.  In the new production presented by Prospect Theater Company, director Elizabeth Lucas, through snippets of connecting dialogue and short, silent scenes, gives the evening a bit of a narrative.  The result is too thin to add any dramatic heft, but not so intrusive as to distract from the poetry of the material and the tender and touching performances of her beautifully singing cast.
