BWW Review: Unseen Images' FAR AWAY Creates a Disturbing Dream World at The Venue
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 29, 2016

From the moment you entire The Venue and see Amanda Hudson-Giese sitting in a rocking chair on stage, there is a dream-like quality to Unseen Images Theatre's production of Caryl Churchill's 2000 play, FAR AWAY. This dream-like quality continues as the play-proper begins, but it quickly spirals into a jarring nightmare, in which Fragments of scenes and stories present a disjointed look at a world at war with itself. Less interested in sharing a complete narrative, FAR AWAY instead sets up brief, bizarre glimpses into a world that appears to be devolving into a dystopian hellscape. (more...)

BWW Review: Beth Marshall Presents' THE GLASS MENAGERIE is Restless Blend of Anger and Ambition
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 29, 2016

'Why, Tom- are you always so restless?' These words from a worried mother to her only son in Tennessee Williams' THE GLASS MENAGERIE could very much be used to describe Beth Marshall Presents' ambitious telling of this seminal American memory play. The production, which runs at the Garden Theatre through November 6th, has palpably amplified the nervous energy in this normally introspective character drama. As directed by Marshall, THE GLASS MENAGERIE seems to be playing with far more urgent stakes than are normally associated with the hindsight of the play, which creates more interpersonal conflict and tension, but robs the characters of their inherent pathos.

BWW Recap: WESTWORLD Reveals What it All Means
by Jessica Naftaly - Oct 23, 2016

Guts, gore, heists, shoot outs, revelations, and one gnarly snake tattoo are just some of what you can find in the fourth and most explosively exciting episode of WESTWORLD to date. The episode, entitled “Dissonance Theory,” already starts laying the firm foundation for where the season is headed, while doing what WESTWORLD does best; satiates your appetite but with such incredible flavors that make you want to come back for more just to confirm its brilliance. “Dissonance Theory,” and what the concept of the title suggests, is that the human mind is constantly trying to find patterns amongst their cognitions and understanding (i.e. how your brain works and what it is understanding) but when a dissonance arrises, there is a need to take action to get rid of said dissonance to return to the peaceful equilibrium of before. As the hosts' world begins to unravel from inside out, and the inner workings of Westworld on every level start exposing their pure selfish corruption, dissonances are cropping up all around at a rate so quick, the possibility attaining pure and consistent cognitions is falling too far out of reach.  (more...)
