Playwright Domnica Radulescu Set for EXILE IS MY HOME Talkback at Theater For The New City, 5/21Playwright Domnica Radulescu Set for EXILE IS MY HOME Talkback at Theater For The New City, 5/21
by BWW News Desk - May 20, 2016

?Theater For The New City is pleased to announce a special talkback with internationally renowned author Domnica Radulescu and director Andreas Robertz, following the Saturday, May 21, 8:00 pm  performance of Exile Is My Home.  Told as a sci-fi, post-apocalyptic fairy tale,  Exile Is My Home is the haunting story of Mina and Lina, a refugee couple from the Balkans traveling through the galaxy in search of a planet to call home.  The play combines absurdist comedy, irony and suspense to raise consciousness about the current international refugee crisis and the complexity of issues related to it.  The story emerged partly from Radulescu's own experience as a political refugee from the former communist dictatorship of Nicolae Ceausescu and other accounts of displacement.  As millions of people are uprooted from their homes and swept across tumultuous seas and often unwelcome lands, Exile Is My Home highlights the importance of immigrant theater in bringing awareness about many of the challenges facing our world today.   (more...)

BWW Review: Beckett's ENDGAME Brings the Absurdist's World to the Kirk Douglas TheatreBWW Review: Beckett's ENDGAME Brings the Absurdist's World to the Kirk Douglas Theatre
by Shari Barrett - May 2, 2016

Every director has their bucket list of plays they wish to direct or perhaps even appear in someday. Director Alan Mandell has long been enamored with the work of Samuel Beckett and has toured with original productions of Waiting for Godot and Endgame directed by Beckett. With his 80-year career in theatre and innate understanding of the absurdist's work, Mandell has now directed Endgame at the Kirk Douglas Theatre in Culver City, starring in the production with Barry McGovern. This is the second Beckett play in which the two actors have appeared together, the first being Waiting for Godot in 2012 at the Mark Taper Forum. And their stage camaraderie is a wonder to behold.
