Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 6/11/17 RUN DATES:  5/25/17 - 6/25/17 VENUE: Moxie Theatre There’s a lot going on in “The Revolutionists.” The French Revolution, for example. But feminist playwright Lauren Gunderson has a lot more on her mind. Her 2015 modernist, meta-theatrical historical/comical fantasy concerns four 18th century women who made significant contributions to their country, but may or may not have been remembered.  Gunderson is playing with theatrical form here. But for all its cleverness (mostly of the Read More →

Aired on KSDS-FM on 6/2/17 RUN DATES:  5/18/17 - 6/18/17 VENUE: Cygnet Theatre It’s a weird, wicked creation, born and nourished by sheer imagination. In 1845, psychiatrist Heinrich Hoffmann wrote “Struwwelpeter,” or “Slovenly Peter,” as an instructive picture book for his three year-old son. Despite the sinister nature of its grisly fairy tales, where violent death is the upshot of every story, it became a best-seller. Naughty or nasty children and a pair of abusive, neglectful parents suffer dreadful Read More →

Posted at TimesofSanDiego.com on 6/9/17 RUN DATES:  5/13/17 - 6/18/17 VENUE: The Old Globe A long time ago, the moon was always full. An Old Man kept it that way, filling it with liquid light. But it sprang a leak, and light began to seep out. And that’s why we have lunar cycles. This is the fairy tale, “The Old Man and the Old Moon” (reminiscent of a Kipling “Just So” story), told by the PigPen Theatre Company, currently Read More →
