Interview: PRT Artistic Director Marilyn Fox on Directing ALBEE/PINTER by Shari Barrett - Oct 27, 2022

Tony Award winning playwrights Edward Albee and Harold Pinter, who have left indelible marks in world theatre, both give voice to the outlandish and amusing behavior of humans in many of their dark comedies.

In Pinter's The Dumb Waiter, two working-class hitmen wait in a basement for their next assignment.

Review: THE INHERITANCE PART 2 at ZACH by Joni Lorraine - Sep 23, 2022

We returned this week for Part 2 of ZACH's production of THE INHERITANCE. As I sat ensconced as comfortably as possible in my seat for Part 2, I felt the warmth of familiarity with the characters I'd come to know from Part 1 and thought to myself how lovely a well written serial piece might go over in the world of live theatre. It's an investment, there are many reasons it wouldn't work, and as the history of theatre has shown us, the rare six hour production had best be epic. This was true of ANGELS IN AMERICA, but it's not always the case with Lopez's THE INHERITANCE.
