I Finally Saw KCDC’s Production of The House of Bernarda Alba Last Night And Honestly, I Was A Little Disappointed


via The New York Times

I was so sad when an incident involving an angry duck, nine parking tickets, and an industrial size jar of mayonnaise made me miss KCDC’s original run of The House of Bernarda Alba a few months ago. I was obviously ecstatic when I found out they were bringing the show back for one night and one night only! I finally saw the show last night, but to be honest? It wasn’t what I was expecting at all and I was pretty let down. Continue reading

Flash Review: Oleanna

Seriously, how INTENSE is that tagline?

First off, I think I should begin with a disclaimer: I love this play. It’s weird. It’s upsetting. It’s hard to understand. But I love it. In one hour and with two characters, Oleanna gives you a crash course in a subject that playwright David Mamet might call “How to Be Super Profound…profound” (if you read the play, you’ll find that the guy is very fond of repetition, ellipses, italics…and pretty much nothing else). KCDC’s production of the play, directed by Doug Healy ’13, is the senior thesis of Meg Sutter and Harry Hanson.
