BWW Reviews: American Players Theatre Perfects Ancient Story of AN ILIADBWW Reviews: American Players Theatre Perfects Ancient Story of AN ILIAD
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Jun 22, 2015

A college classroom, perhaps set in Ireland because a bottle of Jameson Whiskey appears for the poet to quench his thirst, greets the Touchstone Theatre Audiences at American Players Theatre (APT) in their opening play An Iliad. Outside the classroom rumblings and unrest from unidentified crowds can be heard--Unite James DeVita enters playing the narrator, the poet, the teacher in corduroy pants, tweed suit coat, a woolen vest, pliad tie and white shirt. Similar dress to what the part-time teacher, poet and writer James Joyce, who set contemporary literature on edge with his epic 'Ulysses', the latinized name of hero warrior Odysseus in Homer's 8th century 'Iliad' and 'Odyssey.' Lisa Peterson and Denis O'Hare wrote the stunning 2012 adaptation of 'Iliad' directed at APT by John Langs. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Jul 1, 2015

Stephen Sondeim's 'A Little Night Music,' winner of four Tony Awards in1973, is a musical comedy that has entranced the world. Suggested by a film by Ingmar Bergman, 'A Little Night Music' explores the tangled web of affairs centered around actress Desiree Armfeldt (Jemima Lipari of Plainfield) and two men who love her: a married lawyer by the name of Fredrick Egerman (Ernest Ray of Bolingbrook,) and the Count Carl-Magnus Malcom (Michael Frale of Elk Grove). When Desiree performs in Frerdick's town, the estranged lovers' passion rekindles. This strikes a flurry of jealousy and suspicion between Fredrick's wife, Anne (Savannah Reisenberg of Plainfield), Desiree's current lover, the Count, and the Count's wife, Charlotte (Kathy Fields of Lockport). Both men- as well as their jealous Wives- join Desiree and her family on the summer solstice for 'A Weekend in the Country.' With everyone in one place, infinite possibilities of new romances and second chances bring endless surprises. This musical celebration of love contains a harmonically advanced score, and Sondheim's hauntingly beautiful 'Send in the Clowns.' (more...)
