Here There Are Blueberries Reviews
Washington Post- Highly Recommended
"...A play starring ... research! Well, that sounds a little dry. Rest assured, though: "Here There Are Blueberries," the story of a real photo album depicting Nazis at leisure in the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp and killing center, is anything but."
Washington City Paper- Recommended
"...An antique compact camera rests on a stand. Projected on the screen behind it is the brand name Leica in cursive and the slogan "THE CAMERA OF MODERN TIMES" in a sans-serif font. What follows over the next 90 minutes is a history with which the German camera manufacturer would likely not wish to be associated, but without their products would be impossible to document."
DC Theater Arts- Recommended
"...As it is, Here There Are Blueberries is an artful and considered rendition of the process of historical reconstruction, a worthy subject at a time when everything from Holocaust denial to semantic gymnastics around American slavery threatens to go mainstream. While its coolness sometimes undercuts its message, there are personable moments—like Taub’s meeting with a man who wears his name to spite his father and a late shift to center the victims—that cut deep."
MD Theatre Guide- Highly Recommended
"...There is no shortage of plays, movies and television shows centering on the Holocaust. It is an incredibly difficult subject to broach and yet an important one to depict. Shakespeare Theatre Company’s production of “Here There Are Blueberries” continues the conversation about this unthinkable moment in history, and manages to do so in an incredibly innovative and brilliant new way. Hands down, the best play I’ve seen this season."
