BWW Reviews: Stark Naked Theatre Company's FAITH HEALER Creates Skeptics and Believers
by David Clarke - Jan 26, 2014

When it comes to theatre in Houston, I find that Kim Tobin and Philip Lehl, Co-Executive Directors at Stark Naked Theatre Company, only program plays that everyone should see.

After catching the final preview performance earlier this week, I felt like the boat must have passed me by. Generally regarded as a masterpiece, Brian Friel's Faith Healer didn't impress me in the ways that it seemingly bowls everyone else over. (more...)
