Ellen Dostal - Musicals in LA

Registered Critic


Compelling content and a sensitivity to detail make BREATHE an insightful introduction for others to begin to understand what it's like to walk in another person's shoes. Much of that is attributed to the show's powerful images. Some are revealed slowly with the graceful elegance of an artist in control of every move, extending a still image into a three dimensional space. Others burst through quickly as the modern day actor dives headlong into a memory taking the audience with her to fully experience a moment in time.
