Circle Mirror Transformation Reviews
DC Theater Arts- Highly Recommended
"...The best theater transforms us. Pulitzer Prize and MacArthur awardee playwright Annie Baker knows that instinctively. She’s written a trio of plays about the lives of people in small-town Shirley, Vermont. Circle Mirror Transformation takes us into the “room where it happens” — where theater literally gets made. A nondescript studio in a likely nondescript community center or public school serves as an acting studio for a quartet of students under the tutelage of Marty. She’s their acting teacher for a six-week session consisting of theater games and, ultimately, real life-changing dramas."
MD Theatre Guide- Recommended
"...The characters’ background and feelings are presented via “acting” exercises that Marty has devised. What starts out being thespian training becomes more of a series of psychodrama, therapy sessions. The characters expose a great deal about themselves that exceed the leader’s ability to deal with these revelations."
