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.
