Lucas Hnath’s A Doll’s House – Part 2, is an exploration of the complexity of human emotions, discrete frailty, dreams, ambitions, freedom, and needs emanating from the configuration of the nuclear family, in this instance, with three children and no dog. The four-member cast carried the 90-minute production beautifully, masterfully maintaining their respective roles, engaging the heart and imagination, and taking us with them as they traveled effortlessly in an inventive dreamscape through time.
This fantastic sold-out event warmed the heart and charmed the soul. The characters were delightfully conceived and presented by Mujahid Abdul-Rashid (Hoke Coleburn), Sara Morsey (Daisy Werthan), and Jason Parrish (Boolie Werthan). If you’ve seen the 1989 film, it’s clear that the Florida Rep presentation better captures the emotional and memorable qualities of author Alfred Uhry’s work.
An excited full house eagerly anticipated this Opening Night of West Side Story, its pathos intensified by today’s passing of our beloved bard Stephen Sondheim. As such, we were honored to participate in what became a celebration of West Side Story’s depiction of a doomed couple we love, akin to Romeo and Juliet, Aida and Radames, and Tristan and Isolde.
