The Secret in the Wings

It's a one-act show (which runs an hour and 45 minutes) that is oddly emotional by the end. The cumulative sadness sneaks up on you, and it lingers. It's hard to shake and even harder to pinpoint just why it's so heavy. That's a good thing. So many shows, even when they're enjoyable, are entirely forgettable a day or two later. The mournfulness of "The Secret In Their Wings" will haunt you.

The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time

Adam Langdon as Christopher gives a stunning performance, by turns annoying, sympathetic and humorous with an inordinate amount of dialogue to remember. He doesn't just inhabit the role, he becomes Christopher. The complexity of the role is staggering and he makes it appear effortless. (Benjamin Wheelwright trades off with Langdon on certain days.) Director Marianne Elliott takes a spare stage and a fairly small cast and creates an electrifying experience through the frenetic mind of our hero. She elicits solid performances from all of her actors, especially from Gene Gillette as Christopher's loving and hurting blue-collar father; Felicity Jones Latta as his overwhelmed mother (and who has several lengthy monologues); and Maria Elena Ramirez as Christopher's supportive mentor. John Hemphill gets a lot of laughs as Roger, Mrs. Boone's lover, and Kathy McCafferty, who gets a number of small showy roles, and nails every single one.

Plasticity

"Plasticity" is a tour de force, using minimal production to take us deep into both one man's limitless subconscious as well as the minds and lives of the people who love him. It may be a little bit more than the creators could handle, but only by a tiny stretch. This experimental tour de force must be seen to be believed. The experience will leave you thinking and moved.
