Absorbing, Entertaining, Intelligent, Profound, Intense

See it if you recall people who acted as guides to the person you've become. Tiny portraits made of music, odd objects & stories deeply engage viewers

Don't see it if you are looking for a characters who interact. The stories combine to suggest a period in time & the nature of the tellers but not a play.

Clever, Great writing, Ambitious, Absorbing

See it if you are interested in the history of New York's downtown culture- theater, music, dance, visual art- and the confluences of its creators.

Don't see it if you don't enjoy hearing personal stories and seeing how they reverberate with greater universal themes.

May 17th, 2017

“A furtive heartbreaker of a piece…The talents of Mr. Gordon have rarely been in doubt. His style is intense, sardonic, philosophical, with a tendency to skitter away from the spotlight…This is autobiography disguised as séance, masquerading as eulogy, camouflaged as performance. As performance, it could use more order and less fidgeting. ‘Radicals in Miniature’ works best when Mr. Gordon shakes off intellectual notions and formal concerns and quietly sings a snatch of disco.”

"Gordon and his 'Miniature' co-creator Josh Quillen reveal this quirky and heartfelt production’s modus operandi, of small details held and buffed until they illuminate the lives of the overlooked and un-famous...Some stories were more moving than others and some of the underscored phrases and images remained mysterious for why they were chosen. But Gordon and Quillen are an engaging pair as they slowly head towards a softly thundering conclusion."
