THE CHRISTIANS odds and ends
Center Theatre Group's THE CHRISTIANS received a few more good notices over the holidays. At the Bitter Lemons blog, Travis Michael Holder named the play one of the Best Productions of 2015 in his TicketHolder Awards and much of the cast and creative team, including Music Director Scott Anthony, showed up as Runners Up in individual categories.
In a brief review in Splash Magazine, Elaine L. Mura calls THE CHRISTIANS "a subdued and thought-provoking night of theater" and says that the "huge and vocal choir which keeps things moving."
In a much longer and spoiler-filled post at FolkWorks (Spoiler alert: Some of them aren't quite true.), Ross Altman, Ph.D. calls the choir "magnificent" and "inspirational," and says that "the enthusiastic opening night standing ovation at the end was well earned by the cast, the choir and the play."
The Les Waters-directed production of Lucas Hnath's play is in its final week at CTG's Mark Taper Forum. Click here for more info and tickets.
