BWW Reviews: Storytelling at Its Finest in Out Loud Theatre's METAMORPHOSESBWW Reviews: Storytelling at Its Finest in Out Loud Theatre's METAMORPHOSES
by Robert Barossi - Oct 6, 2014

The only thing that is permanent is change. Change is inevitable. It's going to happen, and stories of how things and people change have been told for centuries. Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphoses, presented by Out Loud Theatre at Artists' Exchange in Cranston, is a collection of ancient myths, all of which somehow involve a change or altering. What hasn't changed is how powerful and important these stories of change are. It's a true testament to the power of myth that these stories still hold up in our modern age. They are just as relevant and relatable today as when they were written by Ovid, a Latin poet who is believed to have completed his collection of poems around 8 A.D. (more...)

by Tim Carney - Jul 5, 2014

Last nights opening of the reimagined Les Miserables was a defining moment in Australian music theatre. While maintaining its history and staying true to its origins, Cameron Mackintosh's new production is the dawning of a new era. Its Metamorphoses from its original production to this new adaption is subtle, yet every change advances the show into the realm of the contemporary theatre. While the grandeur of the original masterpiece is at times missed, the simplicity and sharpness of the design enhances the story and brings Victor Hugo's original text to life. (more...)
