PRODUCTION DESCRIPTION

Take a sensual journey to the exotic side of Europe as a gay southern man, frustrated with his life, finds his religious roots challenged as he becomes mesmerized by the passion and hunger of leather sex. This haunting mystery challenges all who have felt constrained by tradition and seek to break free.

The Experts Say...

Atlanta Journal Constitution
by Kathy Janich
October 06, 2000
Kathy sez "tie me up, tie me down, but give me a reason to care."

Kathy notes that nothing really happens in this play that sets out to shock the senses. Although there are some fine moments (the choral work of Three, a solid cast), words like "yawn" and "puzzle at" set the tone for her review.

Creative Loafing
by Curt Holman
December 10, 2000
In a nutshell, Curt sez that "In Berlin" "tends to be too abstract and confusing to foster much emotional connection to the audience, even as it ambitiously searched for the link between erotic dark sides and spirituality."

Pretentious and boring....but "E" for Effort
by Cuddles

2.0
In Berlin wants soooo desperately to shock you. To make you sit up and think, "wait a minute...my tax dollars aren't paying for this smut, are they?" and then storm out of the theater. Unfortunately, there is nothing particuarly shocking about this world premiere. There's really nothing particuarly interesting about it, either. Nothing happens. Nobody changes. The story is, well, dull.

BUT, there are some saving elements. The cast is wonderful, the directing is stunning, the lighting and sound design are impressive. At least 7Stages is taking risks...pushing the envelope..and not producing the same, tired stuff everyone else has their hands on.

Unfortunately, the effort is somewhat wasted on this pretentious and boring script. [POST A COMMENT REGARDING THIS REVIEW]
