Of Mice and Men at Threshold Rep

Of Mice and Men tells the story of George and Lennie, two men working from farm to farm in depression-era California. Threshold Rep’s production of the John Steinbeck classic carries the requisite emotion, depth, and performances, but a series of smaller flaws compound, adding up to an underwhelming experience. Read full review at The Art Mag.

A WRINKLE IN TIME AT THRESHOLD REP

It might seem a daunting task to bring the much beloved children’s book A Wrinkle in Time to the stage—considering it’s a tale that deals with space travel, alien civilizations, and otherworldly figures (a giant brain, for one)—but Threshold Rep succeeds, creating a performance that is true to the novel, well-acted, and quite entertaining.

It’s the story of Meg Murry, her little brother Charles Wallace, and their journey to save their father from the dark planet Camazotz. Along the way, they meet eccentric characters, travel to distant worlds, and fight for their lives. It’s a classic morality tale of good versus evil with themes focusing on social conformity and governmental domination. Read full review at The Art Mag.
