August: Osage County
Last night I attended the opening performance of August: Osage County, and was blown away - it's powerful production about the battles between a dysfunctional family as they face life and death and a matriarch who has jumped the rails.
It's an amazing show, both for the riveting performances by the actors involved and for the incredible set that the ARTS tech crew has assembled. It all adds up to one of (if not THE) most impressive production of the year.
You have one more chance to catch the show this weekend, tonight at 8 p.m., and then three shows next weekend. Don't miss it!
I'll have a full review posted here soon, and I have some cast interviews to share, but first, here's an excellent story from the Herald-Dispatch written by my pal Dave Lavender (the photo above is by Toril Lavender):
