Theatre is Easy
August 30th, 2016

"'The Door' primarily consists of two characters addressing the audience, and it almost feels like two solo shows with similar themes played back to back. Mireminy and Ebrahimi are more than up to the task here, bringing real passion and urgency to their performances. Periodically there are transitional, dialogue-free sequences, more in the 'performance art' vein...Those interested in boundary-pushing theater will find 'The Door' worth entering."

"We never learn why Mastaneh is so desperate to emigrate to America…And yet they have completely given over their existence, even their breath to immigration lawyer Mr. Golbahari…The thrust is as enigmatic as any of the plays this reviewer has seen in the Tehran Fajr Theater Festival. Too bad the audience hardly reacted to the inherent humor in Mashour's text...Perhaps Mashour's direction of his made-to-order script replete with NY references needs to be broader to signal it's OK to laugh."
