Incredible Performance – I just saw ART's production of Mary Zimmerman's Metamorphosis last night and I'm still a-tingle with mythic inspiration. The show was funny, poignant, haunting, transformative, political, gorgeous and topical all at the same time. I would like to say here that I am a rather picky theater-goer and a mythological studies student to boot. I was concerned that translating an epic as grandiose as Ovid's ancient poem Metamorphosis to the stage would be impossible, but with Zimmerman's intelligently beautiful script, the director's exceptional skill, outstanding performances by multi-talented actors and an otherworldly fusion of brilliant set/costume/lighting/sound design, ART's latest production was truly a triumph of theatrical and artistic prowess.
Prize-winning plays, great acting, first-rate sets and not a bad seat in the house. – In Short
A.R.T. does a great job with the extra events that help an audience prepare for--or digest--each production. You can grill the director in the pre-session, or dote on the cast afterwards. Monday Night Readings feature local actors and a variety of scripts, including plays that were turned into motion pictures. Hear how good the writing sounds without the special effects.
Theatre Done Right – I've been attending ART for years and have yet to be disenchanted by a performance. They strive for a diverse range of plays and always deliver. Whether you purchase a seasonal subscription, or a single ticket, you wont be disappointed.
life is a stage and ART does a heck of a job with its choices of participants and plays.
