What did this play make you think about?
“The nature of power and how power can delude one into believing that one is infallible and more intelligent and capable than one is.”—TVHC
“Just how torqued Romania was.”—RickF
“Eastern European Communism. Ambiguity–not all black and white.”—Bill D.
Where were you when the Iron Curtain fell? When the Berlin Wall came down? What are your memories?
“I was on a consulting gig in Kiel, West Germany. Couldn’t quite believe it was true and worried that the Soviets would come crashing through with troops and tanks.”—TVHC
What else would you like to say about the play?
“I found this a very one note production and not as thought provoking as the reality of the Ceausescu’s fall from power. The A.R.T.’s Brecht productions have been much more thought provoking as was Peter Sellar’s production a couple of years ago.”—TVHC
“I really enjoyed it — it was well written and well acted. The last part with the dancing (partial) bears was just perfect.”—RickF
“Superbly done, as all ART productions are. Would have gained immensely from some sort of introductory materials. Program helped some, but it itself somewhat confusing. OK to assume audience is smart, but it was just not that informed on something that happened 19 years ago.”—Bill D.
