BWW Reviews: A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN NOVEMBER ON THE BANKS OF THE GREATEST OF THE GREAT LAKES Makes Theatre Into A Lively Spectator SportBWW Reviews: A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN NOVEMBER ON THE BANKS OF THE GREATEST OF THE GREAT LAKES Makes Theatre Into A Lively Spectator Sport
by Rachel Weinberg - Jan 19, 2015

Kate Benson's new play 'A Beautiful Day in November on the Banks of the Greatest of the Great Lakes' takes place not on a lake, as the title might suggest, but rather in a gymnasium. The high-stakes Thanksgiving dinner at the center of the play unfolds at Wembley Stadium, where two announcers, # in charge of action and @ color commentary (yes, those are truly their names), quite literally call the shots into microphones from a booth above the stage. Directed by Lee Sunday Evans, this production relies on the ensemble to use heightened physicality and emotionality in order to bring this match to life. Fortunately, the actors who portray the Wembley family are fully committed to the challenged of making theatre into a literal game. In this production by New Georges in collaboration with Women's Project Theater, the unconventional 'Beautiful Day' is brought to vibrant, zany life. (more...)

EDINBURGH 2014 - BWW Reviews: THE SCOTTISH ENLIGHTENMENT PROJECT, Summerhall, August 1 2014EDINBURGH 2014 - BWW Reviews: THE SCOTTISH ENLIGHTENMENT PROJECT, Summerhall, August 1 2014
by Amy Hanson - Aug 2, 2014

The Scottish Enlightenment Project, playing for only three nights at Summerhall, is a performance of a work in progress created by the National Theatre of Scotland and Brooklyn-based the TEAM. A meditation on Scottish national identity, particularly in contrast with that of America, it is centred around the story of two old friends from Glasgow, one recently returned from London and one still living with his mother, who reunite and head out on a road trip with an American woman they meet in a bar. Their story is interwoven with scenes demonstrating the influence on their ideas of national identity by the main thinkers of the Scottish Enlightenment, particularly James Macpherson (of Ossian fame), Adam Smith and Walter Scott.
