Krapp’s Last Tape

Krapp’s Last Tape

★★★★☆  Authentic Krapp:

Wistful and careful, Arkle’s production of Krapp’s Last Tape brings out the humanity in Beckett’s masterpiece. Often seen as a forbidding play, there is nothing remotely inaccessible about this.

The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew

★★★☆☆ Uneven updating:

Arkle’s take on The Taming of the Shrew is a largely successful attempt to make relevant one of Shakespeare’s plays that is most troubling to modern audiences.

The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds

★★★☆☆  Inexact science:

Arkle’s production of Paul Zindel’s The Effect of Gamma Rays on Man-In-The-Moon Marigolds at the Hill Street Theatre is an uneven but ultimately fulfilling exploration of angry insecurities and brittle dreams.
