BWW Review: Windy City Playhouse's THIS Muddles in the In-Between
by Rachel Weinberg - Jun 27, 2016

Both Melissa James Gibson's play THIS and Windy City Playhouse's production exist on a precipice. For the characters in Gibson's script, they stand on the ledge approaching forty and the onset of middle age, while also waxing nostalgic about the good old college days.These college friends-Jane, Marrell, and Alan (plus Marrell's spouse, Tom, and Jean-Pierre, a new, misplaced member of The Circle)-stand firmly in that liminal space. The characters must navigate both the loss of a loved one (Jane is recently widowed) and the creation of new life (Marrell and Tom are parents to a newborn son). And while Gibson's characters seem to be contemplating major life experiences, she also paints them as exceedingly privileged and self-absorbed-in such a way that it becomes rather difficult to sympathize with them. Similarly, Windy City Playhouse's production (with direction by Artistic Associate Carl Menninger) occupies an in-between status-partly entertaining (with an occasional laugh-out-loud funny line delivery), partly striving towards deep emotional complexity. Unfortunately, THIS never swings far enough in either direction to be memorable.  (more...)

Cesear's Forum to present Lanford Wilson: TAKE 5
by BWW News Desk - Jul 20, 2016

Many of Pulitzer Prize winning playwright Lanford Wilson's plays found life at a New York City coffeehouse, Caffe Cino, in the 1960's.  The venue established itself as one of the first Off-Off-Broadway theatres.  These early plays were often one-act ensemble pieces or, later, sharply drawn character studies less concerned with plot as with revelatory behavior.  Wilson liked the format and Cesear's Forum, Cleveland's small professional "minimalist" theatre company, is pleased to present five such works entitled Lanford Wilson: TAKE 5.  The 90 minute evening utilizes eight actors, sometimes together, sometimes individually, to reflect on aspects of American life.  The writing is at once heartfelt and funny.  The characters' struggles are our struggles, their stories told simply but complicated by societal concerns replete with emotional baggage.  Ideals and illusions are sustained tenuously.  The five plays (in order of appearance) are: WANDERING, SEXTET (YES), A BETHROTHAL, BRONTOSAURUS and A POSTER OF THE COSMOS.  The limited engagement production runs late September through October at Kennedy's Down Under, Playhouse Square, Cleveland, Ohio.   (more...)
