The Laramie Project, by Moises Kaufman & members of The Tectonic Theater Project
moving and well acted
Friday, September 14, 2001
4.0
The set is spare and desolate, which is good. The acting is in general excellent. Each actor plays multiple characters, and in every case pulls it off well. The script is moving and sad, particularly since it's all based on truth. I got teary several times during the show. It's beautiful.

That said, it's not perfect. The script included what appeared to me to be irrelevant commentary from the play's authors, who really had nothing to do with what happened. Seemed a little self-indulgent. Also, out-of-character motion on stage was stylized to the point of being a little distracting. Finally, though the show is sad, it's kind of predictably sad. It's not particularly thought provoking, and there weren't lines or images that I think will stick with me.

Overall, see this show, it's very good.

Art, by Yasmina Reza (translated by Christopher Hampton)
overacted, but a touching script
Friday, June 1, 2001
2.0
Art seems to be about reliance on other people for your identity, and talking about superficial issues in place of the real ones. I liked the script. Not flawless, but good. The set is gorgeous. The acting is overdone. Kayser overacts, but not as badly as Leon. I just couldn't believe that people could talk like that. I did get teary near the end, so it is a moving piece overall. I also wasn't crazy about some of the blocking and other directing choices (timing, etc.)

16 Routines, by Murray Mednick
Weird, but draws you in.
Friday, June 1, 2001
4.0
16 Routines is a strange play that doesn't appear to have much of a story, at least on one viewing. The characters all act very strangely. However, the words are consistently interesting, and I can't wait to see this play again. The script is full of good ideas.

The acting is consistently good throughout. Push push is a good space for a show like this.
