Sleepwalkers, by Jorge Ignacio Cortinas
Absorbing, Riveting, Fresh, New, Must SEE
Tuesday, April 30, 2002
5.0
I have lived in New York most of my life and get to see many shows by many talented people. Lucky for me I happened into this little gem while on buisiness here in Atlanta. Sleepwalkers is beautifully written and fiercely acted, directed, and designed by a top level group of artists. On the surface what you are watching seems very simple and the problems to be solved very Seinfeld-ian paticularly in a scene between the Skinny Woman and the Butcher where she needs meat, the Butcher doesn't have any, or does he? The acting is minimal but very absorbing, YOU MUST PAY ATTENTION to the actor's and what they are saying when they aren't saying anything. Playwright Cortinas and director Polendo have formulated a show that is outside the bounderies of the standard Western drama which makes for an exciting fresh theater going experience. Riveting performances from this tight ensemble of six Because of this however, (particularly reading what other "reviewers" had to say)average Joe Jerry Springer fan is probably going to miss what is going on beneath the surface. Atlanta is lucky to have this production in it's hands. I hope it finds a life elsewhere.
