Beholder (Trap Door Theatre) – 6/19/08
I thought "Beholder" by Ken Prestininzi (6/19/08) at the tiny Trap Door in Bucktown was the best new work I have seen in Chicago thus far in the year. It's an intelligent and ardent play, with impassioned performances, about German artist Paula Modersohn-Becker and her search for fulfillment as an artist and a person. The experience was a pleasant surprise.
