Boston Playwrights Making Good!

Two local playwrights are breaking out pretty regularly in other cities.

Melinda Lopez's Sonia Flew is at Steppenwolf in Chicago, after playing engagements in a few other cities. Here is the review from the now infamous Hedy Weiss. And here is the Sun Times PR piece on Melinda and the play.

And Ronan Noone's latest play The Atheist got a nice notice from the Times.

Congratulations to Ms. Lopez and Mr. Noone.

I saw Campbell Scott do a very-capable reading of "The Atheist" last spring at the Huntington's new works festival. The script was certainly creepily compelling moment-to-moment, although its metaphysical aspirations seemed a bit overblown. There are few theatrical thrills in this town, however, like watching an actor of Scott's ability and focus in a room as small as Rehearsal Room A at the Calderwood Pavilion. Noone is certainly a talent to watch, and Folks can still catch a few more performances of his latest piece, "Brendan," at the Calderwood through December 17th.
