BWW Interview: Ariel Craft of UTOPIA at Cutting Ball Theater Helms a Wildly Inventive World Premiere by Charles L. Mee
October 29, 2020

The name Ariel Craft evokes an improbable combination of magic and skill, whimsy and rigor. If that weren't already her real name, I honestly don't think you could invent a more apt moniker for the director of Charles L. Mee's Utopia now enjoying a virtual world premiere from San Francisco's Cutting Ball Theater. After all, it takes a person of uncommon prowess and boundless creativity to bring this kind of unorthodox play to life. Utopia is a quirky, multidisciplinary work incorporating contemporary dance and animated artworks by disabled artists to offer a delightful commentary on life, love and the absurdity of the everyday. Utopia is available for streaming on demand through November 15th. For further information or to order tickets visit cuttingball.com or call (415) 525-1205. BroadwayWorld caught up with Craft from her home in Berkeley while she was in the thick of rehearsals for Utopia.
