Theatre Review: Antigone



With just two productions in as many months, New Noise co-artistic director Joanna Russo has leapt to the top of the list of directors I admire. Following the perfectly executed Never Swim Alone for Elm Theatre with this all-female staging of Antigone for Lux et Umbra, Russo demonstrates thrilling mastery of the theatrical approach I least favor: director-centric, all light & movement & sound. If I want spectacle I go to the movies. On stage, especially in a storefront theater, I’m usually looking first for rich language delivered by exciting actors.
