I was very disappointed to hear that Desire Under the Elms is closing early. I thought that the first 5 minutes, with two brothers doing hard farm work, hauling stones, gutting a pig, while stones were hung perilously all around them, was one of the more exciting, visceral theatrical experiences I’ve seen in awhile. I got discount tickets to see it with my sister during previews. If you can get cheap tickets, I say it’s worth the coin.
But, definitely don’t miss Lloyd Suh’s American Hwangap, at the Wild Project right now. Like, go right now.
