THE SHADOW BOX
Regeneration Theatre @ Gene Frankel Theatre
“The cast of Regeneration Theatre was so attuned to the music in Cristofer's words, it was a pleasure to watch. I attribute their success in this soul-searing work to director Marcus Gualberto, who well- choreographed the ebb and flow of human emotion. The audience was very moved. They stood with ‘bravos’ which I offer to Regeneration for having the courage to revive this play.”
FEATURE: "The Shadow Box... and How I Learned to Say Goodbye."
"In both dramatic form and visceral feeling, The Shadow Box from Regeneration Theatre takes hold early and never lets go.
Crackling dialogue, timeless subject matter and confident characters bolster the relevance of this two-act revival... Director Marcus Gualberto has assembled an expert cast that evokes a full range of emotions with ample intimacy."
"Regeneration Theatre, under the astute and creative direction of Marcus Gualberto, has revived this worthy endeavor, and has more than met the challenge... and it will be worth your while to make the effort to see it.
The Shadow Box – 43 years later, still a landmark of American Theatre.
Regeneration Theatre has done it justice. Go see it if you can."
"Judging by the standing ovation that it received at the performance I attended, where it was a sold-out crowd, it seems most others are in agreement that this is a thought-provoking drama that was worth reviving…
Having attended a number of their productions in the past, this may well be their best production yet that I’ve seen. (Or at the very least, it’s on par with their powerful performance of As Is in 2018.)
Performed by a remarkably talented cast… This production’s cast fully commits, and delivers beautifully nuanced and emotional performances... there wasn’t a single performance that stood out as being less than excellent."
