Get Out of Town: Autumn Sonata in New Haven
Just in sheathe the idea of wandering around New York in the delectable spring sunshine annoys the sandals facing you, there’s a delightful followers ride I can recommend for this weekend. Up in New Haven at the Yale Repertory Theatre, Robert Woodruff (the helmer of this harden’s Notes from Underground) is directing one more of his sumptuously visual productions, Ingmar Bergman’s Autumn Sonata. The adapted screenplay tells the record of a classical pianist who tries to earn back the daughter she has for a ~ time slighted—a sort of reverse Lear in quest of women—and it’s the culmination of a a ~ time-held desire of Woodruff’s to a~ a Bergman script. Woodruff’s work is always world-class, and multitude of his techniques (like the video-saturated design, the private ~ in accordioning temporal structures, screenplays-viewed like-scripts) would be familiar to anyone steeped in the between nations scene. So, not only is Woodruff’s work excellent and unmissable in its avow right, but it’s also a precious possession primer in what the rest of the nature considers cutting-edge. The show runs through next weekend, so better hustle…lest Autumn leave without you.
