BWW Review: ANIMALS at Williamstown Theatre Festival On Audible Theater Photo BWW Review: ANIMALS at Williamstown Theatre Festival On Audible Theater
by Marc Savitt - Dec 17, 2020

Directed by Obie Award Winner, Whitney White, the piece is billed as a comedy that ‚Äúmarches into the muddy intersection of romantic entanglement, identity, pride, and survival.‚Ä̬† For me the piece is something like the theatrical (verbal) equivalent of a mixed doubles tennis match. There are lots of volley‚Äôs, some overhead smashes and an occasional Ace leaving the recipient unable to respond but stinging none the less.¬† The four characters engage in relatively rapid-fire banter that includes a fair amount of intensity and emotion.¬† The subject matter often deals with sensitive issues that include political correctness, cancel culture, race, roles, and even some romance.¬† The dialogue is real, sometimes raw, rarely funny.¬† The piece packs a lot of drama and emotion, but not much oomph, sizzle, or pizazz.
