When it's a play by Edward Albee, the master of American absurdist theater with his wry dialogue and unsympathetic depictions of modern life, it's bound to push boundaries and be unexpected. Albee himself in an interview said about the 2002 Tony Award winner for Best Play The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? "Imagine what you can't imagine"; and the play delivers a wickedly funny and searing exploration of tolerance and the chaotic fragility of human relationships. Upfront, the premise of The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? is a man in love with a goat. Yet, Albee goes further. Amid the clever and hilarious dialogue, he examines the confounding and often irrational nature of love and the anguish of loneliness amidst what appears to be a happy world. The title refers to the song "Who is Sylvia" Proteus sings to woo his intended in Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona. The Goat, or Who is Sylvia? will woo audiences in surprising ways in an unforgettable theatrical experience.

BWW Reviews: Albee's GOAT a Knockout at LGBTBWW Reviews: Albee's GOAT a Knockout at LGBT
by Don Grigware - Sep 29, 2014

Nothing like an idyllic family portrait (at left): father Martin (Paul Witten), mother Stevie (Ann Noble), son Billy (Spencer Morrissey) and close family friend Ross (Matt Kirkwood). They are what one might call perfect. They have everything and adore one another. Martin is a prize-winning architect, Stevie is his loyal, devoted mate, Billy, although a teenager and gay, is a good kid, who is encouraged by his parents to be who he is and to embrace it. Ross, a TV interviewer, is about to interview Martin about his recent award and turning 50, when the taping is botched by Martin's sudden inability to remember anything or to put a few words together intelligibly. He has a problem and who should he turn to but his best friend Ross. When Martin confides that he is having an 'affair' of sorts, Ross is shocked not only by the fact that Martin has always been completely faithful to Stevie, but by the new object of his affection. Martin is in love with a goat named Sylvia. (more...)

Fratellanza to Bring THE MUTE QUIRE to Ireland and ChinaFratellanza to Bring THE MUTE QUIRE to Ireland and China
by BWW News Desk - Jul 6, 2014

The Mute Quire, a theater piece created by Fratellanza, premiered in Michigan to critical acclaim and sold-out houses in 2012. Fratellanza has rewritten The Mute Quire and, as an international ensemble from America, China and Italy, has been chosen to perform it at the Galway and Macau Fringe Festivals. The baffling but true events surrounding the printing of Shakespeare's First Folio, are told in afreewheeling story of a blind printer, his illiterate apprentice, and a buffoonish actor from the King's Men. Highly kinetic and poetic, The Mute Quire reasserts the raucous and the popular in Shakespeare, against the counter-forces of individualism and profit. (more...)
