BWW Review: FOR PETER PAN ON HER 7TH BIRTHDAYBWW Review: FOR PETER PAN ON HER 7TH BIRTHDAY
by Keith Waits - Mar 15, 2016

In the opening monologue of For Peter Pan on her 70th Birthday, Ann (Kathleen Chalfant), the eldest of her siblings, reminisces about a part she played as a young woman; the part was Peter Pan; she doesn't know why people laugh when she tells the story, she says; she is the image of Mary Martin, or at least how you might remember Mary Martin to look at 70, strong features, long neck, short cropped blonde hair combed back, warm and cheerful with something intelligent underneath. It is the start of a metaphor that Ruhl returns to again and again, unabashedly mining it for all that it is, in a play that seems to be about everything: life, the death of one's parents, politics, spirituality, and finally about growing up, whatever that might mean.

BWW REVIEW: A.R.T. Hooks Mark Rylance's NICE FISH Before NYC RunBWW REVIEW: A.R.T. Hooks Mark Rylance's NICE FISH Before NYC Run
by Jan Nargi - Feb 1, 2016

If the homespun humor and quirky philosophizing that comes to you live from Lake Woebegone via A Prairie Home Companion warms you up on a cold winter's night, then NICE FISH is your cup of cocoa. The brainchild of Mark Rylance and Louis Jenkins, based on Jenkins' offbeat down home prose poems written over the course of 50 years, NICE FISH is a somewhat surrealistic tale of those hearty folk who search for solace on the frozen lakes of Minnesota and spiritual solitude in the murky depths of their own minds.
