A manipulative entertainment that sets out to confuse theater and therapy.
Daniel Elihu Kramer
Theater in the Berkshires has now entered a less than sparkling mode with a group of offerings that left me wondering why they were chosen for production.
The production, like so many I’ve seen staged by the Chester Theatre Company, makes the most of limited resources.
Technology is the gimmick in this two-hander, but what makes Blink absorbing is the writing, teamed with excellent acting and directing.
“The Swan” is a bold choice for a theater company and demands excellent actors and direction to keep it afloat.
A fascinating adaptation, well worth the trip to out-of-the-way Chester, MA, TURN OF THE SCREW is never less than interesting and often all-absorbing — especially when actress Allison McLemore lets loose.
The Chester Theatre Company’s production, directed by Ron Bashford, runs over two hours with nary a dull moment and the actors seem to be having as wonderful a time as the audience.
