with 'trojan women' tag

souvlaki or yakitori?

last saturday, celia and i abandoned the puppy for a few hours and trekked up to the valley to see lodestone theatre’s production of trojan women.

emily kuroda is fantastic as hecuba. there’s something very engaging about experienced stage actors and the way they capture the stage. most of the rest of the cast is good, if not at that same level. the staging is very simple, but effective.

the la weekly and the los angeles times both reviewed the play, the same performance even, and the contrast in the reviews is striking. but i can also see where both reviewers are coming from — the choices that they disagree on are polarizing.

you only have a couple of more weekends to head out to the valley to check this out. it’s worth the trip.
