You should love the author more than the characters. He made you fall in love with them.

Open letter from Our theater director Mr Kyle Lewis: Dear Parents, I just wanted to take a moment to say, THANK YOU to ALL of the parents who have helped in any way with theatre this year. We began the year with a Renaissance Feaste that was reportedly, “Even better than the year before! It’s great to see students now take ownership of the Feaste.” I couldn’t agree more. We continued with a 2nd Place Sweepstakes trophy in the largest division at the High School Shakespeare Competition. Proving that jumping TWO divisions to the top was the right move to make. Our students not only held their own, but helped to dismantle Hillcrest’s seven year domination of 1st Place. I’m sure that should we have stayed in the Cambridge Division we would have taken 1st. But these students are so much more than a 1st place trophy in a division they can easily win. Then we took on Eurydice by Sarah Ruhl, a Utah high school first! I cannot imagine students more capable of tackling this modern poetic material. It wa ...

from Sarah Ruhl: When did the language of clear steps become an aesthetic vocabulary for the minstrels, bohemians, jugglers, puppet-masters, flying machinists, divas, clowns, burlesque dancers, and theater artists who are meant to channel the inexplicable? In other words “I just want to make sure that the steps the character is taking on his or her journey are absolutely clear.” When did “clear steps” make for a good story? Here is Hamlet taking clear steps. “I’m going to kill him. Now I am about to kill him. Now I have killed him.” Characters take a step and then a back-step and then a leap and then a strange bedeviled jump and then they fall over. Clear steps? They are for a manual on how to put together furniture from another country. What I mean to say is: whatever happened to the Dionysian. (See Nietzsche on The Birth of Tragedy.) Our theater is now almost entirely made up of Apollos. Whatever happened to the irrational—to the notion that brilliant practicioners of an art form have pi ...

-- y'know what's HIGH-LARIOUS? I went to college with Sarah Ruhl. I was even in one of her plays. I broke my toe.
Sarah Ruhl is such an interesting writer. Always has women at the forefront and she has such a reliable feminist sensibility.
Yes I do. I write strong female characters. BTW the best play I've seen recently is the vibrator play by Sarah Ruhl.
Insides are vibrating/hysterical over this article Also...Sarah Ruhl.

Just saw VT Stage's production of Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice--in three sections, with three directors and casts. Interesting experiment, with more continuity than I expected. Like that local theater is trying new things.
Went to a sold-out performance of Vermont Stage Company's Bake-Off last night! They took one play - Sarah Ruhl's Eurydice - and broke it into three parts, each with a different director and cast. Great show, funny and thought-provoking, and the three parts were totally different from one another which was very cool. Only two more performances left - Sunday matinee and Sunday evening. If you like theater don't miss this!
I find it rather despicable that this faux SARAH RUHL movie HYSTERIA would rip off the idea of the brilliant play IN THE OTHER ROOM or THE PLAY ABOUT THE VIBRATOR. They will not be getting my money at the box office.
