Theatre is Easy
April 4th, 2016

"It’s a fascinating world that Paper Canoe has put together...Adrienne Kapstein’s direction is tight and precise...The second half of the play lacks the specificity and focus that so grounds the first. Though billed as a play for families, I’m not sure how many were fully following the piece’s complicated and convoluted rules and logic...'Light, A Dark Comedy' provides a great opportunity to get lost in a strange and mysterious land—and isn’t that what all good theatre should allow us to do?"

"'Light, A Dark Comedy' is a clever and smartly written play wrapped neatly with an amazing array of costumes, puppetry, lighting and media...The story languishes in the middle and it might be a tough sell for children due to the length and heavy subject matter. However, the detail in the story woven by Steinbruner and the tightly choreographed production is incredibly engaging...With the extraordinary direction of Kapstein the cast utilizes every opportunity to nuance 16 characters to life."
