BWW Review: At the Met, EURYDICE Edges Out Orpheus for the Center of Attention in Pre Photo BWW Review: At the Met, EURYDICE Edges Out Orpheus for the Center of Attention in Premiere
by Richard Sasanow - Nov 24, 2021

Talk about ‚Äėspoiler alerts,‚Äô there was a big one for me early in the opera, EURYDICE, by Matthew Aucoin to a libretto that he and Sarah Ruhl fashioned from her play of the same name, which had its Met premiere last night. Eurydice tells Orpheus ‚ÄúDon‚Äôt look at me,‚ÄĚ which to me mirrored the scene at the end of the piece in the Underworld when Hades tells him that he can take her back to the land of the living if he doesn‚Äôt look back at her‚Ķwhich, of course, he does.

STAGE TUBE: CLYBOURNE PARK Set Goes Up in the Walter Kerr!
by Stage Tube - Apr 5, 2012

Winner of the 2011 Pulitzer Prize and London's Olivier Award for Best Play, Clybourne Park is described as the 'wickedly funny and fiercely provocative new play about race, real estate and the volatile values of each.' Clybourne Park explodes in two outrageous acts set 50 years apart. Act One takes place in 1959, as nervous community leaders anxiously try to stop the sale of a home to a black family. Act Two is set in the same house in the present day, as the now predominantly African-American neighborhood battles to hold its ground in the face of gentrification. See the construction of the house in the theatre, from start to finish, below!
