Went to see Paradise Lost at the ART last night. A really compelling production of a not oft-produced Clifford Odets play that feels like it was written yesterday, with the current events of the play matching our own ecomonic turmoil now. Of course, I love anything that Tommy is in, so I'm biased of course! But the rest of the cast is wonderful as well, and I thought the staging, particularly the use of filmic elements, was quite original and inventive. I was also surprised at how the poetry of the piece was, for me, really brought forth by the unconventional, non-naturalistic staging.
