Fantasia de Colores

October 2015
Fantasia de Colores,
by Maura Campbell. A world première adapted for the stage and directed by Georgette Garbès Putzel who was also The Mother in the play. 

Half devil half angel. Longing. Despair. Drugs, abuse, and victims. Hopes. Dreams. A fantasy on human nature and its social failures. For accompaniment? legends and songs from the hearts of the people. 

So does the storytelling, which — despite being nearly 100 minutes without intermission — proved fascinating nearly from beginning to end. It was a beautiful but unsettling experience, visually and colorfully.

Jim Lowe is theater critic and arts editor of the Times Argus and Rutland Herald.

October 2019
A Visit from Miss Prothero, by Alan Bennet.
A premiere in Vermont directed by Rob Kelly. A slice of life magnified. Funny, touching, true. Two people at a critical point in life: one retired, the other soon to be retired. Alan Bennett’s sharp and compassionate observation pulls us beyond the specifics of a situation, towards universals of the mind and the heart. He uses this One Act dialogue between two quite ordinary people to remind us of the power of words, silences, attitudes and relationships.
