The next review for pool (no water) is up, coming to us this time from Jordan Young (who we just noticed you can follow on twitter. Kids these days with their technology and their gadgets and their whatnots.):
If the US premiere of Mark Ravenhill’s “pool (no water)” is any indication, and I suspect it is, [Monkey Wrench Collective] is out to shake up the status quo and challenge the definition of theatre -- or what passes for theatre in OC, at any rate.
Ravenhill’s latest is ostensibly about a group of artists and the tragic accident that befalls the most successful of them, but it’s more about the nature of friendship. It’s an eloquent tapestry of words, closer to a prose poem than a play. As directed by Dave Barton, Melita Ann Sagar and Lee Samuel Tanng, and choreographed by Sagar and Tanng, this bold and uncompromising effort resembles a work of modern dance that is striking in design and execution.
Pool continues its run this weekend at the MWC space in downtown Fullerton. Tickets $15 General / $10 students. 714.525.1400 for reservations.
Devoted to US premieres of European work, West Coast premieres of socially provocative new work, and vibrant productions of rarely-performed classics. We are located at 204 N. Harbor Blvd in downtown Fullerton, CA. Free parking is available in the lot behind the theater and at the parking structure one block up on Wilshire.
