TITUSS BURGESS: TAKE ME TO THE WORLD
"Sometimes, when the stars align, cabaret can take you out of the world for a few magical hours..."
GUARDS AT THE TAJ
"Director Weissman skillfully constructs and sustains an atmosphere that is alternately foreboding, jolting, and elegiac...”
"...Gabriel Vega Weissman’s production is sublime.”
"Athyal and Gagoomal are at their best when they are exploring possibilities, when they feel free to run with whatever exciting thoughts come into their heads. This trait survives in spite of the despair and anguish that dominate the later parts of the play. In fact, Weissman uses (perhaps even creates) quiet moments to echo and amplify these expressions of their camaraderie. It is unusual to find this kind of interaction in a black comedy; places where Joseph probes the gentle sides of masculinity as well as the intertwined power of beauty and terror.”
"Horrific, touching, and deeply beautiful, Weissman’s production brings to life Rajiv Joseph’s play with such wonderful magic that it will mesmerize you from start to finish.”
TITUSS BURGESS IN CONCERT AT THE KENNEDY CENTER
"...every second felt like a gift for this audience."
“...an hour and a half of madcap hilarity, in which you are never sure where you might end up.”
“Literate without being pretentious, funny without being dumb, Loose Canon, is a delightfully fun time.”
