Arts West has good concession offerings (some which benefit a local charity). Though the venue is surrounded by tons of great food options - including Talarico's Pizza, which has tasty 14" slices of pizza!

German accents marred the production; group of four of us & none could discern what was being said a significant portion of the time. Disappointing.

We truly enjoyed the show. Well acted, well directed. Sound and lighting were beautifully desinged. Cindy Bradder (Ludmilla) was wonderful. German accent didn't bother us, but I am not sure it added any value to the performance.

An interesting play. This production lacked impact. A big problem results from the decision to have the characters speak with heavy German accents. What accents might add is debatable in the abstract, but in this case, it made it extremely...continued

Quotes & Highlights

" … a significant and intensely moving new work by a proven Broadway playwright. This is a play with enough daring to look at the polarities of war with a strong sense of the complexity of human limitations." —Chicago Tribune

Description

A highly theatrical depiction of four German, gentile women struggling to survive through the rise and fall of Adolf Hitler. This Jefferson-nominated Best Play of 2006 – based on actual interviews with women who navigated the landscape of fascism from the inside – received its New York debut in 2009, and will be directed by Artistic Director, Christopher Zinovitch.

“Once upon a time, a long, long time ago, there lived, on top of the mountain there – a mean old man . . .” Thus, our narrator, Ludmilla begins the story of three women: Gretchen, the working class girl who looks after an indolent father; Angelika who aspires to be a nurse; and Friederike, the daughter of an aristocratic family with a passion for the jazz clubs of Berlin – as they grow up under the new regime of Adolf Hitler. Each will face their own demons as they encounter the real demons of Fascism. This modern fairy tale is also populated by the Frau—an embodiment of Nazi power, who shifts from Schoolmistress, to a compromised clinician, to task master, to torturer.

_

All Through the Night_ features Cindy Bradder (Ludmilla), Colleen Carey (the Frau), Erin Stewart (Friederike), Jillian Vashro (Gretchen) and Kate Witt (Angelika).

Recommended for 13 and older for subject matter and violence.
