BWW Reviews: BECKY SHAW, Comedy of Bad Manners, Splendid at DobamaBWW Reviews: BECKY SHAW, Comedy of Bad Manners, Splendid at Dobama
by Roy Berko - Mar 9, 2015

Gina Gionfriddo, the author of BECKY SHAW, now on stage at Dobama Theatre, is one of the new breed of playwrights who reflect topics relevant to today, cleverly construct their writings, and uses language that shimmers with naturalism. They don't use stage language or formats like Arthur Miller or Eugene O'Neill, or the oft-present symbolism of Tennessee Williams, nor the existential philosophy of Edward Albee. Gionfriddo, along with such modernists as Neil LaBute and Rajiv Joseph, push the envelope, using real people interacting to highlight their foibles and weaknesses. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER Poignantly Examines the Folds of Our LivesBWW Reviews: ANIMALS OUT OF PAPER Poignantly Examines the Folds of Our Lives
by Rachel Weinberg - Feb 16, 2015

The initial set-up for Pulitzer Prize finalist Rajiv Joseph's 'Animals Out of Paper' at first seems contrived: Ilana Andrews, a down-on-her-luck origami artist who has hit a wall both creatively and personally, finds her life shaken up when a nerdy, overly optimistic math teacher asks her to mentor his brilliant-yet-troubled student. As directed by Merri Milwe, however, the circumstances in YOLO! Productions and The Great Griffon's production of the play feel entirely genuine. This depth of feeling comes in part from Joseph's smart playwriting and also from the three talented actors who take the text from two-dimensional paper to three-dimensional staging. As the play unfolds (pun intended), we see the rawness and honesty underneath the initial scenario that sets the plot in motion. (more...)
