BWW Reviews: New Theatre Company Seduces with Tennessee Williams' KINGDOM OF EARTHBWW Reviews: New Theatre Company Seduces with Tennessee Williams' KINGDOM OF EARTH

Selected as the inaugural production for the newly formed Tennessee Williams Theatre Company (TWTC), KINGDOM OF EARTH is rarely produced, but is gaining traction as a Southern Gothic drama. The melodrama, dark humor and grotesque beauty that can be found in the Williams canon is rife in KINGDOM OF EARTH, and the TWTC puts all of it on a wonderful display. (more...)
