I saw this last night, and the style, themes, language, direction, and presentation had such a huge impact on me. It's some of the best Sam Shepard work that I've experienced.
My Fringe play has been over for about a month, and I've been trying to regroup and figure out how to proceed with my work and career, but after experiencing HEARTLESS, I'm motivated to write. I want to write. I want to sit alone and revise and start new projects and create worlds and moments and characters and stories that have meaning. This production confirmed a few things in me, and this artist is ready to proceed. Thank you Mr. Shepard and to everyone involved with this powerful production.
What motivates you? What direction will you move into as we settle into the fall?
I've also decided to slowly start broadening my theatre horizons; I want to start experiencing productions that move out of my comfort zone or away from things that I naturally like.
With that said, I saw this last weekend, and I was truly amazed by this theatrical, entertaining, inspiring, and great production.
Here's what's coming up for me:
Ionesco's RHINOCEROS at BAM
Steppenwolf's WHO'S AFRAID OF VIRGINIA WOOLF? by Edward Albee
Chaplin The Musical
Mamet's GLENGARRY GLEN ROSS with Al Pacino and an all star cast
What are you seeing next?
