by BWW News Desk - Jun 15, 2018

Through the disorienting kaleidoscope of existentialist thought, Jean-Paul Sartre and Simone de Beauvoir navigate World War II-era Paris, testing conventional boundaries of love and freedom with a novel pact of 'essential love' that allows each to take 'contingent' lovers. Armed with a deep commitment to lofty ideals, the couple dives headfirst into life's grittier side, becoming entangled in seduction, betrayal and war. As they pull others into their powerful vortex, they explode the image of philosophers as solitary armchair ponderers and define a new kind of love. (more...)

BWW Review: APPOGGIATURA Explores Love and Grief in Venice at the Indiana Repertory TheatreBWW Review: APPOGGIATURA Explores Love and Grief in Venice at the Indiana Repertory Theatre
by Melissa Hall - Mar 19, 2018

Music and plot are so closely intertwined in Appoggiatura, that you can't mention one without the other.

The play, part of a trilogy written by playwright-in-residence James Still, follows three travelers on a sojourn through lovely Venice. On their journey they wander the canals finding pieces of their hearts as they go. The city feels like one of the main characters in the story. As one actor notes, 'Venice is as old and broken as the rest of us.'. (more...)
