The reviews are rolling in after last night’s opening night performance of Robert Falls’ Desire Under the Elms.
The Chicago Tribune hails Jeff-recommended Desire Under the Elms “an enormous, bold…colossal, eye-popping, unabashedly sexual and overtly expressionistic” production and praises Carla Gugino’s “careermaking performance” as Abbie.
The Chicago Sun-Times raves, “Falls’ vision…is fierce and relentless...You will not soon forget this thunderous production.”
And Newcity states, “this exceptional revival…is currently the best thing on a Chicago stage and deserves a place on every critic’s ‘Best Of’ list twelve months from now.”
We are very excited about the critics’ reviews, but we want to know what you think!
