BWW Review: THE BEAUTY QUEEN OF LEENANE at Mark Taper Forum
by Don Grigware - Nov 17, 2016

For the most part, brilliantly written classic plays make their locale the main character of the piece. Think of Tennessee Williams. All of his plays take place in the American South; poverty-stricken New Orleans sets the background for Streetcar among other plays. In Martin McDonagh's The Beauty Queen of Leenane, the small town of Leenane in Connemara, County Galway, Ireland not only displays the frequent rainy, dismal atmosphere for Mag Folan (Marie Mullen) and daughter Maureen (Aisling O'Sullivan), but it sets the lugubrious tone of isolation that cripples and destroys them. Now on the Taper stage through December 18 the Druid Company of Galway who originated the play in 1996, which went on to win four Tonys on Broadway in 1998, presents a stark portrait that lingers in the mind long after one leaves the theatre.

BWW Review: DREAMLAND Fails to Find Its Footing at NoHo Arts Center

BWW Review: JANE COMFORT Dances Tales of The City
by Juan Michael Porter II - Jun 19, 2016

A man enters the space and walks the perimeter of The Kitchen's vast stage. Soon the entire arena will be filled with seven bodies locomoting with the purposeful gait of New Yorkers. Patterns form, collisions are narrowly missed, and somehow though it is only walking, we are rapt with anticipation. Anyone who has ever been in a modern dance class has seen this before: walking patterns are nothing new to dance. Very little of what occurs in Jane Comfort's 'You are Here' strikes one as groundbreaking. If anything, the piece is a revisit to the 'Tales of the City' concept that so many choreographers and film-makers enjoy exploring. Strangers in the city meet and are repulsed by each but sometimes they connect and talk. What kept this fresh despite its familiarity at June 16th's performance was the dynamic force exuded by the performers. (more...)
