The New York Times...

...



...has wonderful things to say about Eurydice, the show I recently painted in New York.

Click here for a review.

And here for a little multimedia thingamajig that features an interview with Eurydice's set designer, the always-wonderful Scott Bradley. (There are a lot of pictures of the set, as well.)

Here's a taste:

In her weird and wonderful new play, “Eurydice,” the gifted young writer Sarah Ruhl has adapted this mournful legend with a fresh eye, concentrating not on the passionate pilgrimage of Orpheus to retrieve his bride but on Eurydice’s descent into the jaws of death. What she finds there, and what she learns about love, loss and the pleasures and pains of memory, is the subject of Ms. Ruhl’s tender-hearted comedy, which opened last night at the Second Stage Theater in a rhapsodically beautiful production directed by Les Waters.

WOW!!! It is so wonderful to see how all the pieces of this set you have shown us on the blog finally came together and how very phenomenal it is... Like Bandaid, I also marvel at the sure footedness of your actors! Thanks so much for sharing...

I also found this little bit in the review spelling out Eurydice's viewpoint on life in the afterworld especially moving; that, "commemorating life, its pleasures and problems, its transience and pain, is the only way to triumph over death and loss". I could not agree more.

To know that you had a part in the set is just amazing. I just told my husband that if we ever become rich I would like to fly to NY to see a select plays. This would be on my list.
