This one really stunk. I've never written a review like this one before but I feel I owe it to my fellow Goldstar members. I was taken by all the great reviews written by friends and family of the actors, theater owners and others connected with the "play". This should be called re-boring. Usually I have some feeling for the actors in a bad play. But not here they didn't even come close to saving it. Speaking of saving, Save your money,
Quotes & Highlights
- This will be the world premiere of Reborning, which opened the 2009 Summer Play Festival at the Public Theatre in New York directed by Kip Fagan and starring Greg Keller, Ally Sheedy and Katherine Waterston (Kindness, "The Babysitters").
The SF Playhouse (Bill English, Artistic Director; Susi Damilano, Producing Director) presents the world premiere of Reborning by Zayd Dohrn.
This dark comedy takes an unsettling look at work, latex, and the power of creation. A young artist who crafts custom made dolls begins to suspect that a demanding client may be the mother who abandoned her at birth. As she tries to unravel the mystery, she discovers the path to her own "Reborning”.
Josh Costello will direct a cast of SF favorites. Returning from New York to play the lead role is Lauren English who recently graduated with an MFA from the Tisch Graduate Acting Program. Alexander Alioto, a fifth generation San Francisco native and Lorri Holt, most recently seen in Animals Out of Paper complete the cast.
About the Ticket Supplier: The San Francisco Playhouse
The aim of the SF Playhouse is to provide a creative home and inspiring environment where actors, directors, writers, designers and theater lovers converge to create works that celebrate the human spirit. Founded by Bill English and Susi Damilano in 2003, SF Playhouse is Union Square's intimate, professional theatre. Using professional actors and world-class design, the SF Playhouse -- which won the Bay Guardian's 2006 Best Off Broadway Theatre Award and about which the San Francisco Chronicle raved "San Francisco's newest theatre isn't just another tiny stage carved out of a storefront...it's an enticing introduction to a new company" -- has become an intimate theatre alternative to the traditional Union Square theatre fare, garnering 20 Bay Area Theatre Critic nominations in its first year.
