Reviewers praise WTD's EURYDICE: 

Tickets still available until the 31st!


"...all directorial ego and actor-narcissism has been carved away, and there is nothing left but text and movement and breathtaking connections ... full of small surprises, each like a small drop of lemon on the tongue ... Ruhl sings.  Her play defines aliveness ... Talbott...seems to compose the silences ... [The production] arouses our keener hearing, our keener observance of movement, and 90 minutes of astonishing biological aliveness that feels like fresh breezes gamboling in our chests."

-- Marion Hunter, The Columbia Paper


"Fine direction and superb acting ... Rachel Storey plays Eurydice captivatingly ... Ron Komora['s] great warmth ... The villain...is brilliantly played by Paul Boothroyd ... Jonathan Talbott['s] score is wonderful ... [The Stones] move with wonderful grace ..." 

-- John Paul Keeler, Hudson-Catskill Newspapers


"A fascinating play ... a mystical world ... summer fare has never felt so timely or right."

-- J. Peter Bergman, Berkshirebrightfocus.com


"Perfect ... remarkable and moving."

-- Gail Burns, Gailsez.org
