Thought-provoking, Refreshing, Intelligent, Great acting, Ambitious

See it if Gives you 3 different plots in one story. Makes you think. 1st two better than the thied.

Don't see it if If you dont want to think at the theater. Easier theater to watch is more for you.

Insightful, Resonant, Unsettling, Relevant, Thought-provoking

See it if Shaken people struggle to find that home & relationships are no longer what they seemed. Excellent writing & acting. Sharply thematic.

Don't see it if You are uninterested in the details of how the characters react, and actors perform, in these mentally disturbing situations. Read more

"'The Jewish Wife' is a masterpiece in miniature, a study in quiet, everyday capitulation that couldn't be more relevant than it is right now."

"'Producing theatrical works that feature compelling stories created by emerging theater artists' is from the New Light Theater Project's self-description. Their vastly and thoughtfully entertaining presentation, 'Brecht: Call and Respond' achieves that aim."

Score: 80%. "If you have never seen Brecht's The Jewish Wife, which I had not, make this the time you go. It is a poignant story as expected from Brecht. The other two one-acts are intelligent and positioned. The acting is excellent. Worth the ticket price of $25."
