I am delighted that Theater J’s World premier production of Stefanie Zadravec’s Honey Brown Eyes received a great review from Peter Marks at The Washington Post this morning, echoing our own experiences with our preview and opening night audiences.
We’re overjoyed that we’ve been able to premier this terrific play at such a perfect venue. Theater J’s commitment to examining issues of ethnicity, action and social consciousness has meant that the dialogue surrounding Honey Brown Eyes extends far beyond the unanimous praise we’re getting for Stefanie Zadravec’s stunning script, which examines the lives of ordinary people caught up in the extraordinary brutality of civil conflict in the Bosnia of 1991.
This production of Honey Brown Eyes has also presented us with the opportunity to bring greater dialogue about the issues surrounding this and all civil conflicts to the Washington DC community through additional programming; Peace Café talk-backs, Artistic Director’s Roundtable panels, (with leaders in the fields of international policy and journalism, scholarship, diplomacy and humanitarian action), our Ethics in War readings and performances, and the ever-lively Theater J blog.
We’re proud of the work we’ve done to bring this World Premier to you, and hope you’ll join us during the run to see what all the buzz is about.

I look forward to seeing you at the show!
