BWW Review: THE WHITE CARD at Penumbra Offers a Brainy Rollercoaster on Race and Art Photo BWW Review: THE WHITE CARD at Penumbra Offers a Brainy Rollercoaster on Race and Art
by Karen Bovard - Feb 20, 2020

Director Talvin Wilks puts it well: a?oeJourneying into the writing of Claudia Rankine is like taking a roller coaster ride through our nation's most complex and subtle quandaries regarding race.a?? THE WHITE CARD is a new play by the renowned 2016 MacArthur Fellow, and author of five collections of poetry. THE WHITE CARD avoids simplistic slogans in favor of a far more nuanced autopsy of the way that white privilege (and the obliviousness and self-righteousness it fosters) infect the actions of well-meaning white people.

BWW Review: THE ROYAL FAMILY at Guthrie Theater
by Karen Bovard - Feb 10, 2017

Of the three shows currently running at the Guthrie, THE ROYAL FAMILY is definitely the lightweight, longer on comedy and razzle-dazzle production values than on importance. (The other two shows are KING LEAR and PROMISE LAND, a barebones physical theater take on the Hansel and Gretel tale retold as an immigrant story.) Loosely based on the Barrymore acting clan, THE ROYAL FAMILY follows three generations of a prominent and wealthy family of performers, with particular attention to the female line.

BWW Reviews: Somewhat Predictable, but Still Very Entertaining, the Guthrie's SKIING ON BROKEN GLASS
by Noah Lee Jordan - Nov 5, 2013

It's opening night of David Goldstein's SKIING ON BROKEN GLASS at the Guthrie and as the play forms around me, it feels all too familiar-a love that makes no sense, an escort, unsupportive peers, and a constant battle of conscience. The play is just a little expected but in the end it leaves you with something to chat about by the water cooler and captures a few very real moments that make it all worthwhile.
