Sometimes, the worthwhile reason to see Palm Beach Dramaworks’ mounting of 4000 Miles, the satisfying treat is watching the vibrating depiction by up-and-comer Gabriell Salgado of a deeply troubled young man and the brilliant portrait by Patricia Conolly of a 91-year-old grandmother staying vital and engaged while struggling with the debilitating effects of old age.
The unreliability of memory — and the resulting doubt and guilt — swirl through Zoetic Stage’s finely crafted production of The Great God Pan.
GableStage’s production of Amy Herzog’s play 4000 Miles is a puzzle. We can tell you the intriguing premise, we can sketch out the plot, we can describe the engaging characters, we can praise the strong performances and even identify the touching and funny moments. But we can’t tell you what the play is about or the pattern those jigsaw pieces create.
After the Revolution is a smooth, polished, persuasive production — well-acted and directed — that is intellectually stimulating, but the playwright’s witty repartee undercuts the emotional anguish.
