A Doll’s House traces the awakening of Nora Helmer from her previously unexamined life of domestic, wifely comfort. Having been ruled her whole life by either her father or her husband Torvald, Nora finally comes to question the foundation of everything she has believed in once her marriage is put to the test. Having borrowed money from a man of ill-repute named Krogstad, by forging her father’s signature, she was able to pay for a trip to Italy to save her sick husband’s life (he was unaware of the loan, believing that the money came from Nora’s father). Since then, she has had to contrive ways to pay back her loan, growing particularly concerned with money and the ways of a complex world.

by BWW News Desk - Sep 5, 2013

Whether it's Woody Allen's latest movie, Blue Jasmine, or looking at the recent cover of The New Yorker magazine showing Anthony Weiner on top of the Empire State Building, one has to wonder has anything changed since Nora slammed the door over a hundred years ago in Ibsen's iconic play A Doll's House? Deborah Schwartz made sure that they did in her timely novel, Woman on Top (Laudan Press). The juxtaposition of Jasmine sitting on a bench jabbering aimlessly at the end of Woody's movie, and Kate, the heroine in Deborah's novel, sitting on top of Mount Kilimanjaro, is striking! (more...)

Marriage on Stage
by Roundabout Theatre Company - Feb 14, 2014

Dinner with Friends offers an intimate view of two marriages and four friendships, examining the loyalties, fears, passions, and habits that keep couples and friends together. Marriage is a popular onstage subject, the backbone for many of the last century's most iconic plays. Domestic drama as we know it today may be traced back to Henrik Ibsen's 1879 play A Doll's House. The play, which follows an unequal and eventually unsustainable marriage, was a radical critique of 19th-century marriage norms and set the stage for the realistic plays (many of them domestic) of the 20th century. Below are a few examples of notable marriage-centric plays from the last hundred years. Whether funny or heartbreaking, they are inherently, undoubtedly dramatic. (more...)

BWW Reviews: 2nd Story Theatre's SAINT JOAN Falls Short of Miraculous
by Robert Barossi - Dec 2, 2013

There are those plays that, one way or another, rest primarily on the shoulders of a single actor. It's true that no play, unless it's a one-man or woman show, is completely about just one person, one character. On the other hand, there are plays where everything is so tightly connected to a single character that they are the show's life, breath and blood. A play like Hamlet, for example, Streetcar Named Desire or A Doll's House. You simply must have the right actor playing Hamlet, Nora and Stanley to make those plays become what they might be. Unfortunately, 2nd Story Theatre's current production of George Bernard Shaw's Saint Joan just doesn't have what it needs at its center, in the all-important title role. (more...)
