by Joseph Harrison - Feb 23, 2020

There are certain stories that strike an emotional chord regardless of the format or venue. One such story is the Charlotte Bronte classic JANE EYRE, which is now playing at Hartford Stage in a brand new adaptation by Associate Artistic Director, Elizabeth Williamson (who also directs). The story - equal parts Victorian epic and Gothic horror, holds up extremely well in this production - providing a sweeping narrative, delivered by a talented cast and supported by strong technical design.

BWW Review: ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD at Huntington Theatre Company Photo BWW Review: ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD at Huntington Theatre Company
by Andrew Child - Oct 22, 2019

Tom Stoppard's Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead is alive and well at the Huntington Theatrea?"resuscitated beyond the didactic philosophy with which the text is too often approached in academic settings and fully breathing as the comedic bacchanalia of narcissism and self-introspection that Stoppard engineered. The play obsessively examines the tribulations of two ill-fated, minor characters from William Shakespeare's Hamlet, taking the audience on a stroll through the minds of fictional men who seem to realize, not only that they exist within a play, but that they merely exist within that play so that something bad may happen to them. The audience joins the two as they pass the time, waiting for whatever is cominga?? to come.
