The TIMES ran a feature article on 8/3 about the best Shakespeare performances in the last decade. The following quote from a reader appeared on page five of the ARTS section along with a list of readers' favorites.
"Gregg Mozgala and the Theater Breaking Through Barriers performance of "Romeo & Juliet" in 2008. Mozgala makes you forget he has Cerebral Palsey with his hyper-athletic portrayal of Romeo and many other characters in this four-actor piece, that also featured a blind actor. I've seen a lot of Shakespeare, but none were as delightful and memorable as this one. I wish they would do it again."
It's an honor to be included in such good company. A link to the full article is below.
‘Some of Our Parts’ (opens on Wednesday) Theater Breaking Through Barriers commissioned these seven new 10-minute shorts, all dealing with disabilities, from an intriguing group of established and emerging playwrights: Neil LaBute, Kate Moira Ryan, Samuel D. Hunter, Diana Son, Bekah Brunstetter, Jeff Tabnick and Emily Chadick Weiss.

In celebration of the centenary of the birth of Gian Carlo Menotti—Pulitzer Prize–winning composer and Festival founder—Spoleto takes a fresh look at one of Menotti’s most popular and compelling operas. Set amid the devastation of post-war Europe, the haunting ghost story is about a fraudulent medium who ultimately becomes the victim of the voices she conjures. An instant sensation on Broadway where it ran for over 100 performances, the opera’s balance of delicate orchestration, lyric writing, and intense theatricality define the Menotti style. Directed and designed by John Pascoe (of last year’s runaway hit, Flora, an Opera), with Artistic Director for Choral Activities and longtime Menotti associate Joseph Flummerfelt conducting.

Assistant Conductor: Sergei Pavlov
