Theatre is Easy
August 19th, 2016

"Miller's writing is honest, though it occasionally overuses 'fuck' instead of going after some more meaningful dialogue...Wigglesworth’s direction is surprisingly conventional and can move slowly...'Ariadne' wants to be dirtier than it is...I do dig what The Cutout Theatre is trying to do. Their truthful, no bullshit mission is spot-on to unlock some quality storytelling. I’m curious to see what that means outside the confines of Fringe."
