BWW Reviews: Upstream Theater's Masterful Production of ANTIGONEBWW Reviews: Upstream Theater's Masterful Production of ANTIGONE
by Chris Gibson - Oct 15, 2014

I've been privileged to see several versions of Greek playwright Sophocles' 2500 year old work Antigone over the years. All of them have been good, and each of them has been uniquely different. A version I caught at a college even went so far as to incorporate the traditional masks that were utilized for the original productions. But, David R. Slavitt's translation is, by far, the most intriguing and accessible version I've ever seen. With the inclusion of a dash of humor to the proceedings he's also managed to enhance the dramatic depth of the tale. Upstream Theater's current production is masterful and powerful in equal measure, providing a memorable experience that demands to be seen. (more...)
