  • Greater Grief
    29 May. 2023
    Set in the world of a familiar myth, Siegel invokes emotions that resonate across time and tradition. It's a wonderful combination of a story about grief while pushing the stakes further by asking the question of what that means for individuality and finding fulfillment in one's self.
  • What I Wish I'd Said

    One of the best experiences I've had in the theater is seeing this piece. It is deceptively heartbreaking yet brings a sense of solace that hits you at the end. A great coming of age love story that needs to be in one act festivals all over!

    Everything about this - from its formatting, to reframing of a classic fairytale to a contemporary setting, and its heartbreaking dialogue, is masterful. There are plays that are adaptations of classics and plays that address dementia, but Macedo has managed to create her own new genre with this piece.
  • Fucking Mac Demarco: Polly's Playlist

    I have never had the experience of walking out of a theatre with everyone singing a song from the show while simultaneously crying at the beauty they just witnessed. Then I saw Fucking Mac Demarco.

    The experience of seeing Frankie and Logan will have you cackling at the relatability of waiting in a chat in its beautiful transformation to the stage. Lynn's piece is a refreshing, honest take on the "chat room play" through and through that has me waiting for a whole chat play anthology from him.

    If you need to see just how important theatre is as a medium in performing arts, look no further than Chicana Legend. It ties themes of storytelling across generations into a video game in a way that is so beautifully crafted, it brings you to tears and gets you thinking about your own history of myth, legend, and where you come from.
  • House of Kehillah
    28 Jul. 2022
    House of Kehillah brings as many laughs as it does tears in its moving portrayal of generational experiences involving religion, sexuality, and the human condition. To experience a Kyr Siegel play is to be immersed in a world of poetry, longing, and comfort, and HOK has no shortage of any of that.
