If the currency of a healthy relationship is communication then Abby and Zack, the married couples in Amy Herzog's play BELLEVILLE playing at the Pasadena Playhouse through Sunday, May 13th, will go bankrupt. The play may take place in the heart on Paris, but this show follows as this couple traverse emotions a lot less like love and more like lunacy as they struggle to understand each other.

by Ellen Dostal - Oct 3, 2017

OUR TOWN is Wilder's most well-known work, a classic of the American theatre that presents the cyclical nature of life in three acts and a town called Grover's Corners, where birth, death, love, and marriage, are shown in their most mundane glory. The brilliant simplicity of the work cannot be overstated.

If by betraying her principles Scholl could prolong her life, as opposed to adhering to her principles, dying, and having no impact at all, which choice should she make? And this is not just her existential question: It is her interrogator Grunwald's as well. It would appear that Grunwald has made the opposite choice. But has he? At the very end of the play, that question is reopened.
