Repetitive, Slow, Quirky, Great staging, Great acting

See it if you would like a modern take on a Biblical story. Good acting, sound and lights on unique staging refined & managed by two shadows.

Don't see it if if expect to learn something new about this story - it follows the same path with modern dress. Seating in the round so you miss some action

Slow, Intense, Relevant, Great staging, Great acting

See it if You want to ponder on the timeless issue of refugees thru a known&well-acted biblical story, staged in the round.

Don't see it if The script could benefit from some editing as dialogue plays a bit flat and preachy at times.

Talkin' Broadway
June 14th, 2022

"Although there are moments of suspense thanks to some effective lighting, sound, and projection design (by, respectively, Paul Bartlett, Fan Zhang, and Tuânminh A Đỗ), the dialog becomes repetitive and increasingly philosophic and abstract, ending in some future place where Edith, permanently encased, a statue of salt, muses on her ultimate defiance, unhumbled and still looking back and remembering."

"'Don’t Look Back,' by Adam Kraar, highlights current issues and profound themes in his reimagining of the Biblical story of Lot and his family fleeing Sodom and Gomorrah. With a minimalistic set devised in the round at HERE by director Wayne Maugans, we watch as Lot (Jeff Rubino), his wife Edith (Cynthia Bastidas), older daughter Annie (Masha King) and youngest Molly (Lina Silver) travel with suitcases through a desert wilderness, carrying just a few remnants of their previous life."

"Playwright Adam Kraar has a facility with language, dropping evocative poetry like cool sips of water into the mouths of his characters"
