Get Out of Town: Autumn Sonata in New Haven
Just in question the idea of wandering around New York in the lovely spring sunshine annoys the sandals along you, there’s a delightful body of attendants ride I can recommend for this weekend. Up in New Haven at the Yale Repertory Theatre, Robert Woodruff (the helmer of this inure’s Notes from Underground) is directing some other of his sumptuously visual productions, Ingmar Bergman’s Autumn Sonata. The adapted screenplay tells the narrative of a classical pianist who tries to procure back the daughter she has far-seeing slighted—a sort of reverse Lear beneficial to women—and it’s the culmination of a spun out-held desire of Woodruff’s to a~ a Bergman script. Woodruff’s toil is always world-class, and many of his techniques (like the video-saturated design, the concern in accordioning temporal structures, screenplays-in the same proportion that-scripts) would be familiar to anyone steeped in the international scene. So, not only is Woodruff’s be in action excellent and unmissable in its have right, but it’s also a valuable primer in what the rest of the nature considers cutting-edge. The show runs end next weekend, so better hustle…lest Autumn leave without you.
