Reviews

It has humor, heart and an elegant, deceptive surface simplicity.

Theatre is easy

Emily Cordes
De Profundis (2016)

 

De Profundis’s celebration of sound finds its full expression in writer/director Ran Xia’s lyrical text and Adrian Bridges’ ethereal audio design. Spanish guitars punctuate the music of waves and rain, blending with Antonio’s shell-and-pin-needle symphonies in multi-layered harmony.

 

The live guitar and flamenco dancing of Adrian Bridges and Sofia Lund sets the tone perfectly, with beautifully restrained playing and dancing which adds to the atmosphere throughout the piece.

Glow (2013)

Kaleid Theatre’s GLOW employs movement, voice, sound, and imagery in an impactful piece on a bare stage that challenges our present direction and confronts the effects that this addictive technology has on the mass psychology of our culture and on the lives of its individual users.

 

Theatre is easy

Haytham Ellhawray
Little Town Blues (2011)

A joyful and endearing production with catchy music and that will transport you back to your high school days.

 

The story and the music are intricate and complex, and nothing could have been achieved without an outstanding team to deliver it... It does more than entertain.  It informs a broader worldview.  It heals and caresses those once-hurting parts that we all have.  It speaks to the soul.
