Description

The visuals are pure scenic magic and provide extra insight into the artist and his work. — Jean Schiffman, _San Francisco Examiner _

“Not since ‘Sunday in the Park with George’ have I seen a play about art and artists as fascinating and powerful as Lauren Gunderson’s ‘Bauer.’” — Janos Gereben, San Francisco Performing Arts Examiner

“This true story is a work of substantial brilliance.” — Buzzin’ Lee Hartgrave, BeyondChron

“While the 100-minute play needs some finishing touches, it’s still an exquisite exploration of the fickleness of history, the fragility of the artistic impulse and the age of regret.” — Karen D’Souza, San Jose Mercury News

“This world premiere from the prolific Bay Area playwright is a swirl of hurts, hopes, regrets, love, hate, and forgiveness that finds an order that Bauer himself sought for his art.” — Richard Dodds, The Bay Area Reporter
