Theatre is Easy
September 18th, 2016

"The play is quite engaging, and often funny. Marta Mondelli’s dialogue always glimmers, and occasionally explodes, creating the shocked, delighted gasps one associates with Edward Albee’s work...The audience also has the pleasure of seeing some outstanding acting...Mondelli’s portrayal of Emma, however, falls prey to several classic blunders made by playwrights acting in their own work. She mugs slightly when she knows someone is dropping an important hint."

"Director Tara Elliott keeps things moving along smoothly. However, she was not able to elicit from the actors the subtleties necessary to portray Fred and Emma convincingly…Furthermore, Mondelli’s script is underdeveloped. Too many times the conversations come off as inane cocktail conversation…Surprisingly, the play resonated more the next day than immediately after. Maybe the dust had to settle on too much unfinished, stilted dialogue to get to the heart of 'Toscana.'"
