BWW Review: 4 MINUTES 12 SECONDS Is Must-See Contemporary Commentary at Old Fitz Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Sep 26, 2016

4 Minutes 12 Seconds is THE show you need to see, and one of the best pieces of theatre we've reviewed this year. Take your kids, your partner, your friends, your siblings. Theatre as an art form is known for entertainment, but the best theatre is made to challenge, to comment and to contribute to transitions of culture. This production by Outhouse Theatre Co at Old Fitz, is precisely that: gripping, contemporary and powerful. Zooming on the parents of a promising young man caught in the centre of a online video scandal, audiences face questions about parenthood, pornography, consent, domestic discord, and the obsession of the modern generation to share. A five-star, fierce piece of theatre. (more...)

BWW Review: MY NAME IS ASHER LEV Speaks to our Hearts and our Arts at Eternity Playhouse
by Brodie Paparella - May 16, 2016

If there is anything an audience can relate to in contemporary theatre, it is the concept of struggling to forge ahead with one's own individual passions whilst navigating the traditions of the past and the expectations of those who, having grown up in more desperate times, had only such traditions to survive by. Where parents fought to give their children a better life, but don't know how to handle it when they start to take such opportunities. My Name is Asher Lev turns up the dial hard on this theme by setting such conflict in the home of an observant Torah Jewish family, wherein the titular character is awakened with a prodigal gift for art. In his father's mind, this gift is from the devil. So Asher's narrative plays out as the ultimate declaration of independence from family, from community, but not perhaps from faith. (more...)
