BWW Review: Barbara Bleier & Austin Pendleton Enchant in  LIFE, AND LOVE, AND WHO KNO Photo BWW Review: Barbara Bleier & Austin Pendleton Enchant in LIFE, AND LOVE, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE? at Pangea
by Ricky Pope - Oct 14, 2021

Barbara Bleier and Austin Pendleton are at it again. But to be honest, even during the pandemic they were never gone. They created a show that Pangea streamed for virtual audiences. Tonight that show LIFE, AND LOVE, AND WHO KNOWS WHAT ELSE?  had its debut in front of a live audience in the back room of Pangea. Bleier explained to us that when they were putting the show together two years ago, they intended to write a show with a political theme. But in these extraordinary times, they have discovered that really everything is political. Everything. And that’s the show they have put together: an evening about the politics of patriotism, the politics of career, the politics of aging, the politics of men and women, the politics of marriage, the politics of family, and the politics of falling in love. It is, in fact, a show about everything.
