BWW Review: MARISOL at Trinity Rep Photo BWW Review: MARISOL at Trinity Rep
by Andria Tieman - May 22, 2019

Trinity Rep closes out their 2018-2019 season with Jose' Rivera's MARISOL, the 1993 Obie winner for best new play. It's a hodgepodge of magical realism and absurdism set in a rapidly disintegrating New York City, and is grand in scope as we learn that people's guardian angels have to abandon them to fight a war in the heavens. There is a lot to wrap your head around in this layered story, but a lack of clear direction makes it hard to find desperately-needed footing.  What the audience is left with feels like a lot of sound and fury.

BWW Review: Trinity Rep's World Premiere SONG OF SUMMER Hits All the Right Notes Photo BWW Review: Trinity Rep's World Premiere SONG OF SUMMER Hits All the Right Notes
by Andria Tieman - Mar 20, 2019

Trinity Rep commissioned playwright Lauren Yee to write SONG OF SUMMER for their company of actors, and the result is such a satisfying and wonderful play that you just want to give everyone involved a big hug. Naturally the casting is flawless, but Yee's dialogue and shrewd observations about growing up, falling in love, small towns and getting sucked into the maelstrom of fame are just so spot on it's almost dizzying. This show is the fresh breath of summer air we need at the end of March.
