"Swing" was was a real crowd pleaser. The second half was really astonishing...the role of child, dad, monster all acted by the same person in amazing detail and clarity. I was very moved by the father's attempt to tell his son...continued

Both plays were fantastic, but "Beowulf" was out of this world. Bryan Burroughs' performance was extraordinary.

Quotes & Highlights

“[The plays] are both very worth the trip … when the rumpled Joe and the tentative May find their groove rocking to an old R&B number, you want to join them on the floor … [Burroughs] juggles an abundance of ideas — so many, in one hour, that Beowulf nears epic dimensions itself.” —The New York Times (Critics’ Pick)
