I’m SO far behind!
Reviews have come out for From Orchids to Octopi like crazy, and I’ve been trying to hard to keep up. Everyone LOVES the photo of Wes and the monkey in the mural. Who knew? Today, we have the Boston Globe and the Boston Phoenix - read on:
"Lopez has given us a faithful portrait of a Charles Darwin who, like her fictional muralist, is at once deeply devoted to his children and struggling to balance his home life with his work. How refreshing to see a man, as well as a woman, talking about these issues onstage."
"Moreover, the performances by the actors in their primary roles are natural enough, with Wesley Savick a gently dyspeptic Darwin and Kortney Adams’s Emma as bemused by what shows up in her cranium as she is by the crisply eccentric obstetrician played by URT artistic director Debra Wise."
From Orchids to Octopi runs through May 2, and shows keep selling out - one recommendation: Weeknights are always good nights to see theater, for those who don’t want to chance it on a sold-out weekend. And remember - FOTO will get you 1/2 price tickets to any show!
