McLean takes the 12th century Hildegard of Bingen and breaks her into three: eye, mouth, hand. She needs to ‘become whole’ and for that purpose the poor little girl is put in a cell for 30 years with Jutta, who’s presumably more enlightened and is equipped to help her. Spoiler: she’s not.

The show is almost entirely sung-through, the music is **heavenly** and the use of looper is spot on.

BURN THIS 🔥
Everyone loves Anna’s hair; her boyfriend, her roommate and her lover. Throughout this Broadway revival the three constantly play with it and sniff it. At some point the lover, Pale, asks, “is your hair always like this?” To which she responds: “It costs thousands of dollars”. So yeah, I guess Burn This means pay someone to burn your hair and make it straight so we can all admire it 🤯

If there is one thing that Halley Feiffer excels at is getting her point across. She did it at Playwrights’ The Pain of my Belligerence where she made us judge the wrong person in the abusive relationship, and she’s doing it again in this Three Sisters adaptation where she tells us to quit the idea of happiness because that’s just not humanly possible. With this she captures the essence of Chekhov with just an extra pinch of salt on our wounds. Because why not? Life isn’t hard enough as it is.•

In this stage adaptation of the novel by Louisa May Alcott the character of Jo has a deep understanding of what she doesn’t want to be: a woman. married. mom. And towards the end of the play she gets reassured that that’s actually totally fine. •

MRS. MURRAY’S MENAGERIE 🐻🐱

This is Gloria. She is my favorite character in this piece, played by the brilliant Stephanie Wright Thompson. Gloria is extremely insecure yet she can’t not say what she thinks. She is intimidated by the other parents on this focus group for kids’ TV show, yet she shows up for this socially awkward and exhausting experience. •
The Office style comedy where the joke is on us as a racist, materialistic and patriarchal society.

CURSE OF THE STARVING CLASS🐑
•
The kitchen falling apart is how we know it’s show time. The whole thing  literally gets destroyed in front of the audience, giving some clues about what’s it like to live in this house.
Social mobility isn’t really a thing for the starving class, “starting over” is not a concept for kids who’s only goal in life is to miraculously find food in the fridge or skillfully stay away from dad’s whipping.

THE PAIN OF MY BELLIGERENCE 🦌
•
This one isn’t easy to watch. A detailed description of an abusive relationship between a young journalist and an older married man. As the play progresses she becomes more and more dependent on him and slowly cuts everyone else from her life.
•
I appreciate the way the writer (and star) tells us that it can happen to anyone. Even if you have a stable job and a bright future ahead of you. And that there is always light at the end of the tunnel even if it’s a really long one.
•
💬FAVORITE QUOTES:
🔸-I like you.
-You don’t know me.
-That’s what I like about you. I can project anything I want on you.
🔸I’m not upset this is just my life.

An empathy expert is hired to teach empathy in a debt collecting office with a toxic environment. •
This play starts as a comedy but then takes a very dark turn. Ladies, if you are sick of douchebags in real life and would rather take a break from them on a night out in the theatre - you might want to avoid this play. It has some very disturbing scenarios... we’ve all been there.
•
This play is about the toll women pay in order for them to be in the workforce and about the emotional burden it requires.
