Absorbing, Ambitious, Confusing, Tense, Intelligent

See it if You like shows that are a bit outside the box-a bit all over the place, but come together to ultimately tell a smart riveting WW2 drama.

Don't see it if If you don’t like shows done on a shoestring. I appreciate them but you do have to be able to fill in a lot with your imagination.

Assured, Strange, Political, Environmental staging, Powerful

See it if you are interested in innovative scripts, inventive staging, or in looking at a unique act of resistance to the crimes of the 3rd Reich.

Don't see it if you want a traditional play, or have no stomach for hearing about Nazi atrocities.

Theatre is Easy
July 14th, 2018

"Presents an explosive mixture of eroticism and danger, but not in a cheesy, action-film-like way...'Rusalka' is at its best when the dialogue yields to the dynamic, dance-like staging...Occasionally the dialogue and vocals intertwine, transferring the audience into the consciousness of the characters. The effect is magical...'Rusalka' is an irresistable and intricate dance of seduction and threat, a play that grips you with its poetic beauty and morbid horror, yet is incredibly empowering."
