BWW Review: Playwright Michael Elyanow Reimagines MEDEA in the Uncategorizable THE CHILDREN at Pillsbury House Theatre
by Jill Schafer - Oct 4, 2016

Medea. Even if, like me, you've never seen or read the play, we all know the story of the mother who kills her children. Worst mother ever, right? But maybe, as they say on CRAZY EX-GIRLFRIEND, the situation is a bit more nuanced than that. Maybe there's more to the story, maybe other people in the story see it differently. Playwright Michael Elyanow (see also the beautiful play with music LULLABY) wanted to explore the story from The Children's viewpoint. He writes in the playbill, 'I started writing The Children as a response play where somebody does take action to defend those kids. In the writing, the piece revealed itself to be a fever dream, a time-traveling mystery, a fish-out-of-water comedy, a theatrical event with a perception shift in every scene until we get at what the play is ultimately, singularly about: trauma survival.' That's about as good of a description as I could imagine. The Children is not an easy play to categorize, but it is a wonderful one to experience for 80 minutes. It'll challenge your perception of Medea, as well as your perception of time and space. (more...)

Cardboard Citizens are marking their 25th anniversary as a company this year and have a rich history of making ground-breaking and thought provoking theatre. I first worked with them two years ago on another Forum Theatre play, A Matter of Mind, about the effect of the teenage brain on behaviour and how it changes over the course of adolescence. The impact the production had on the teenagers was palpable and I was struck by how the work Cardboard Citizens creates doesn't just transform audience opinion - it changes the actors' lives.

BWW Interview: Christine Ebersole on Crafting a Narrative for her Return to the Café Carlyle and Finally Working with Patti LuPone in WAR PAINT

Christine Ebersole will make a triumphant return to the Cafe Carlyle on October 11, kicking off what will be her sixth engagement at the legendary Upper East Side venue.

Prior to her run of shows, BroadwayWorld had a chance to chat with Ebersole about what it's like to perform in a space so richly seeped in history, as well as how she is able to craft a narrative for each of her concerts that is resonant of the current space in which she finds herself. Additionally, Ebersole divulged her hopes for the future of WAR PAINT, the new musical which she starred in this summer from the creative team behind GREY GARDENS, and what it was like to finally work alongside Patti LuPone, after having known her for 40 years.
