From the HEART: Bringing the three McGrath sisters to the stage
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 31, 2011

BWW Reviews: Boiler Room Theatre's CRIMES OF THE HEART
by Jeffrey Ellis - Mar 28, 2011

A favorite of theater audiences since its debut at the 1979 Humana Festival of New American Plays at the Actors' Theatre of Louisville, Crimes of the Heart is given a faithful and elegantly staged revival at Franklin's Boiler Room Theatre. The play moves along at a languid pace befitting its setting and time period - and the story told by the playwright is as engrossing and as richly drawn as it ever was. Moreover, you are struck by the notion that Crimes of the Heart is, indeed, a timeless piece of Southern literature, claiming its rightful place among our region's most memorable prose. (more...)
