Some great new digital ink for After The Revolution, both in Maryland Theatre Guide (“a highly compelling story with a powerful message and an undeniably human pulse”) and in DC Theatrescene (“The play, at turns warmly funny and quietly sad, makes an eloquent case for self-reflection. Ask not what your family can do for you, Herzog suggests, but what it can’t.”)
And there’s also this half-admiring complaint from the Washington City Paper sharing a “on the one hand/but on the other hand” disappointment that “for all that grasping for grandeur, I never shook the sense I was watching privileged people wrestle with extremely privileged problems.” Hmmm. Wonder if that computes for others? Useful for us to ponder, as our student subscribers are taking in not only a host of productions this fall, but also a host of reviews for each production. So we mull on this notice, from a smart critic, and wonder if the criticism sticks.
