Doc Dougherty’s show at Pangea, Godzilla’s Prince, is an epic story of not only survival from an abusive childhood in Irish New York but of perseverance and kindness, of love that transcends the Homeric horrors one child had to endure. He had a boyhood of violence inflicted by both family and school. Sadomasochists can be found everywhere even in the supposed sacred confines of religion.
Aging is Not a Fairy Tale at the Theater for the New City is a delightful, charming, humorous admixture of favorite fairy tales and characters. The repartee was well crafted and sophisticated, and the cast masterfully executed the many subtle and less subtle jabs with splendid, natural timing and assurance.
Redwood, now playing at Ensemble Studio Theater, is a story with layers upon layers of human history, it is a story of immediacy, of familiar and unfamiliar light, of purpose and perception. How the story unfolds in its flash dance, aerobics, and musically wonderful theatrical on-fire staging is stupendous, joyful, and ravishing.
The Constant Wife was charming, fun, witty, droll, elegant, and deserving of the full house and extended ovations. From the onset, listeners were drawn into a mesmerizing plot of well-crafted characters. The company frolicked while gliding through hypocritical attitudes and gender roles prevalent in early 20th-century society.
