1st Stage Extends HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN

Review: HOW THE LIGHT GETS IN at 1st Stage

A humane, engaging look at how shared trauma can lead to meaningful connection. How often does a play draw you in before it even begins? The set for 1st Stage's production of E.M. Lewis' 'How the Light Gets In,' designed by Kathryn Kawecki, is one of the most creative and innovative I have ever seen at a regional theater. The black box is transformed into the Japanese garden that serves as the epicenter of the play's action, complete with a wooden bridge, realistic floral displays, and a pond. The set is well-complemented by Helen Garcia-Alton's lighting and sound designer Gordon Nimmo-Smith's ambient noise.

BWW Review: MARYS SEACOLE at Mosaic Theater Company

Mary Seacole (1805-1881) had more skills than José Andres; in addition to establishing catering in war zones (Seacole set up a rest stop for British soldiers near the front lines during the Crimean War.), she also provided health care services during Jamaica's 1850 cholera epidemic and Panama's the following year.

BWW Review: COMPULSION OR THE HOUSE BEHIND at Theater J

'Compulsion or the House Behind' is a good show, with a strong creative team and an immensely talented cast, but it’s also a flawed one. With pacing issues and a shyness about fully facing the questions it raises, it’s often a frustrating production. But it’s a thought-provoking one for that same reason.
