October 11th, 2015

"If the acting as a whole came together more, 'Burnt House' would be an immersive experience, brimming with exciting strangeness, complete with fully-realized Strindberg nihilism. But when the styles clash like they do here, it becomes difficult to extract meaning beyond the words as they have existed on the page for over a century."

"It’s psychologically chilling—and will keep you on the edge of your seat...No weak links in this cast. No actor stands out but all hold the stage and inhabit their characters with realism. Whitney Gail Aronson, who adapted and directs the play, lets Burnt House do its own rough magic. In a new translation by Robert Greer, the work still smacks of Strindberg through and through."

"The work is filled with metaphors often difficult to discern…The production is sustained with the performances of two principal actors: Jason Paul Tate and Toby Macdonald. It is the conflict between the two that holds the consistent attention of the audience. Both do an exemplary job…Perceptively directed by Whitney Gail Aronson."
