Memory Is the Real Villain In Zoetic’s The Great God Pan

Memory Is the Real Villain In Zoetic’s The Great God Pan

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 31, 2014 – The unreliability of memory — and the resulting doubt and guilt — swirl like autumn leaves through Zoetic Stage’s production of The Great God Pan even though the play occurs in springtime. It’s intentionally never made clear whether childhood sexual abuse actually occurred to the protagonist, which would provide a too-neat explanation for his stunted emotional development as an adult. Because as with John Patrick Shanley’s Doubt, playwright Amy Herzog’s Pan seems less focused on […]

Deerfield Beach joins cigarette litter prevention program

DEERFIELD BEACH, May 30, 2014 – Most smokers who would never consider tossing a can or paper cup out of their car window or onto the beach, will carelessly “flick” their cigarette and cigar butts. Sadly, since smokers have been asked to take it outdoors, it is estimated that as much as 75% of all cigarette butts end up inappropriately disposed in our environment as litter! Tobacco products, including cigarette and cigar butts, are the most-littered item in America, representing nearly […]

New Theatre Neatly Untangles A Gordian Knot In Gidion’s Knot

By Bill Hirschman, FloridaTheaterOnStage.com, Special to EyesOnNews.com, May 30, 2014 – This is why we go to theater. New Theatre’s Gidion’s Knot – wrenching, thought-provoking, shocking, visceral in ways no film can be– exemplifies why we spend time in dark rooms watching live people pretend to be people they’re not.
