BWW Review: Delicious Fun in THE CAKE at Contemporary American Theater FestivalBWW Review: Delicious Fun in THE CAKE at Contemporary American Theater Festival
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Jul 12, 2018

It is plain that Della's resolution of the issue whether to bake a cake for Jen's same-sex wedding will call for a gingerly reassessment of her faith and her life.

JACK Presents Amina Henry's HUNTER JOHN AND JANEJACK Presents Amina Henry's HUNTER JOHN AND JANE
by BWW News Desk - Jul 5, 2018

In her third production at JACK, playwright Amina Henry shares a ghost story (with songs) about a homeless man who is approached in the park by the ghost of a murdered prostitute.  The ghost enlists him on a quest to find her remains so that her grieving mother can finally bury her and move past her mourning. Hunter John and Jane approaches trauma, mental illness and violence towards women in a whimsical way, giving the audience the opportunity to engage with difficult topics through poetic language as well as through a rich musical and visual landscape. With this work, Henry re-imagines what a love story can be, re-imagines what a musical can be, and proposes a world in which all lost or missing individuals are worthy of being found. (more...)
