2013 In Review

December 13th, 2013

2013′s highlight came early: Evan Cabnet’s extraordinary world premiere production of Teddy Ferrara at the Goodman. This occasioned a fantastic profile from Christopher Wallenberg in American Theatre, an interview with Saeed Jones in Buzzfeed, publication of the script from TCG, and DPS’s acquiring the play (with Now or Later). Other highlights: Joshua Sanchez’s movie of Four opening to positive reviews (soon to be available on DVD and Netflix); Dying City at Rogue Machine Theatre, which generated a thoughtful profile from Rob Weiner-Kendt in the Los Angeles Times; the Hartford Courant’s publishing of my op-ed about violence in America; and my continued work with the tremendous group of artists at the New School for Drama.

Dying City in Milwaukee

September 27th, 2013

Mike Fischer, Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: Carefully plotted, asking big questions, without being overt or preachy. Some of those questions involve the Iraq War, but as a symptom of something that’s both more personal and more political: the split personality of a country whose misogynistic fathers have always believed in regeneration through violence — condemning their self-loathing sons to repeat a past those offspring won’t acknowledge and can’t remake.

Dave Begel, OnMilwaukee: This is a play about memories, both the honest ones and those created out of whole cloth… It is an emotional play and a sad story of broken dreams, broken promises and broken spirits. A tough play, with many layers and a subtext that demands exploration.
