Review: THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT at Keegan Theatre Photo Review: THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT at Keegan Theatre
by David Friscic - Feb 1, 2023

In a world of fake news, alternate facts, social media frenzy and an increasingly opinionated and polarized public/audience, the issues raised in the intellectually challenging play The Lifespan of a Fact are more relevant than ever.  Now being presented at the Keegan Theatre, this play may be short in length, but it probingly explores the weighty issues of the passion of the essay writer/prose stylist versus the scrupulous and zealous fact-checking of the journalist/article writer.

The Keegan Theatre is presenting a moving and sensitive production of composer William Finn’s Elegies: A Song Cycle.  This is a work of disarming autobiographical elements that underscore Finn’s alternately quirky and elegiac lyrics.  Finn’s music is shot through with a sense of longing and pain abetted with a sense of holding on to whatever one can grasp at in times of despair and loss.

BWW Review: YOGA PLAY at Keegan Theatre Photo BWW Review: YOGA PLAY at Keegan Theatre

For Keegan Theatre's regional première of Yoga Play by Dipika Guha, Set Designer Matthew J. Keenan provides a sleek, beige unit set onto which Jeremy Bennett's projections shine, pop, narrate, move, and comment. (Be sure to read the changing smoothie descriptions in the Jojomon canteen.) Cindy Landrum Jacobs dresses the set with useful objects which multi-task effortlessly, and Alberto Segarra's lights unify everyone's work. Sound Designer Dan Deiter lets the audience down once in Act I when a phone conversation with a character's mother is garbled and plot points are thus muffled. Otherwise, a very complicated sound plot enhances the production. Shadia Hafiz' costume choices suit southern California corporate offices and yoga studios everywhere.
