“Steinbeck’s “Of Mice” Is Amazingly Engaging And Amazingly Moving At Theatre Unleashed!”
THE GEEK AUTHORITY – Lorenzo Marchessi
Theatre Unleashed at The Belfry Stage, upstairs at the Crown City Theatre in North Hollywood presents one of the most gut-wrenching and classic of John Steinbeck’s plays – “Of Mice and Men” – and it’s performed in all of its full and dramatic visceral intensity here on stage! Directed by Aaron Lyons, who gave a wonderful canvas for these performances to bring this heartfelt and timeless story to life. I have always loved this story and especially productions of this story because it brings home to a lot of people, the feelings of being misunderstood and friendship and how sometimes bad things happen.
“Of Mice and Men” is a powerful novella written by Steinbeck and it was first published in 1937, which tells the story of George Milton and the mentally disabled Lennie Small who are two displaced migrant ranch workers who move from place to place in country sides California in search of new job opportunities during the Great Depression in the United States.
