BWW Reviews: The Rep Rages for the Poetic Beauty and Horror of War in AN ILIAD
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Mar 4, 2014

If ever there were a play to illuminate the theater's power to relate human truth, this could be An Iliad. If ever there were an actor to relate Homer's ancient story through poetry, this surely could be James DeVita. Place this pair in The Milwaukee Rep's Quadracci Powerhouse where An Iliad opened this past weekend, and in 60 years of The Rep's illustrious legacy, almost 42 which has been seen by this ticket holder every season, this stunning production ranks of as one of the top ten.

BWW Reviews: Saying Something New About Graham: The Martha Graham Dance Company at New York City Center
by Mary Callahan - Mar 27, 2014

It's probably not possible to say something about Martha Graham's choreography that hasn't already been said. After all, 2014 marks the Martha Graham Dance Company's 88th season. But just because these works have been seen by audiences a hundred times before does not make them any less meaningful or relevant. There will always be a few Graham 'virgins' in the house, experiencing the magic and mystery of the technique and canon for the first time. And on the other hand, there will always be Graham connoisseurs in the audience, ones that have seen each of the company's twenty-eight works. Even for them, however, the experience is new thanks to a different cast of dancers and an ever-changing contemporary lens. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Legacy of the Myth: Martha Graham Dance Company
by Melia Kraus-har - Mar 21, 2014

Martha Graham Dance Company embraced "Myth and Transformation" as its rallying theme and looked to Greece to fulfill that charge at their New York City Center gala performance on March 19th. The company took great care, as it has in recent seasons, to engage and educate their audience throughout the performance. Extensive program notes, accompanied by Artistic Director Janet Eilber's narrative interludes and projected text in the opening piece, Graham's Clytemnestra, strongly guided that aim. Eilber reminded the audience that Graham considered herself "doom eager," seeking to reside in a state of free fall, much like Clytemnestra. Graham's greatest triumphs often reside in her heroines' fall from grace. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Mar 11, 2014

Her profound and powerful new play became an award-winning hit in London and New York. Now renowned director Jonathan Moscone brings it to Berkeley Rep this April for its Bay Area premiere.

BWW Reviews: Great Storytelling At the Center of One-Man AN ILIAD at The Wilbury Group
by Robert Barossi - Jan 28, 2014

When it comes to plays with a single actor, there are generally two types. The first is the "Look at me!" category, where the actor basically spends ninety minutes shouting "Look at how funny and talented and awesome I am!" The second category is the type of show where the story takes center stage and the actor is simply the conduit through which that story is told, often with stunning results. The Wilbury Group's well-executed production of An Iliad is a perfect example of that second, far superior, kind of one-man show. (more...)
