BWW Review: Amusing Interplay Surrounds WHAT I LEARNED IN PARIS at South Coast Rep Photo BWW Review: Amusing Interplay Surrounds WHAT I LEARNED IN PARIS at South Coast Rep
by Michael Quintos - Mar 7, 2022

Playwright Pearl Cleage's WHAT I LEARNED IN PARIS---now on stage at South Coast Repertory in Costa Mesa through March 19, 2022---takes place during the historic win of Atlanta's first black mayor in 1973 and focuses on a romantic triangle between a young campaign staffer and two much older men she works with at the election HQ.

BWW Review: Eloquent, Timely PIPELINE at Penumbra Theatre Photo BWW Review: Eloquent, Timely PIPELINE at Penumbra Theatre
by Karen Bovard - Oct 8, 2019

Playwright Dominique Morisseau is a gifted rising voice in the theater, recognized with a 2018 Macarthur 'Genius' Grant. Her straight play PIPELINE centers contemporary lives we see on stage too rarely: an anguished black mother trying to keep her teenage son safe, and her financially successful ex-husband, estranged from both of them. Because Morisseau drops us into both public and private school dilemmas for people of color, we gain insight into the deep inequities in our educational systems in this country, though this never feels like an 'issue play' for two reasons: there is no grasping for simple resolutions and the characters are so thoroughly imagined.

BWW Review: Riveting New Play SHEEPDOG Has Impressive World Premiere at South Coast R Photo BWW Review: Riveting New Play SHEEPDOG Has Impressive World Premiere at South Coast Repertory
by Michael Quintos - May 6, 2019

In playwright Kevin Artigue's riveting and thought-provoking new two-person play SHEEPDOG---which finishes up its World Premiere run at Orange County's South Coast Repertory through May 5, 2019 as part of the theater's annual Pacific Playwrights Festival---the ripped-from-the-headlines plot point that finds a young black man being fatally shot by a white police officer becomes an added layer of troubling complication to an already shaky relationship between two genuinely good, aspirational people who are deeply in love---who also happen to be an interracial couple both employed as police officers. A love story rattled by external forces, the play posits the question of whether it is even possible for two people---or at least these two specific people---to carry on a successful romantic relationship while having this specific kind of a job and also while each identifies with one of two separate communities with a long tragic history between them. SHEEPDOG tackles the subject with grace and open-mindedness and therefore makes it one of the most powerful and provocative new plays to come out this season.
