Chicagoland Musical Theatre - Highly Recommended

"...Director Susan Padveen tackles this piece with interesting perspective, taking bold risks in order to bring artistic synthesis to the chaos of Darklingís circumstances. This proves to be an uphill battle, however, due to the sheer complexity of the material. This is a production within a space that thrives on nuance. The scrupulous language of the libretto and exacting intricacy of the score create a landscape of stimulus that is inherently and intentionally overwhelming; as such, moments of subtlety bring immense clarity to the clash of words and music. Padveenís bold choices stimulate the senses with playful discovery, yet the action on stage can overstep the boundaries of the materialís pacing and the intimate confines of Theater Witís space."
