The Storm - a window into Strindberg’s hear and soul in his last years. . . certainly explores the venerable institution and offers some penetrating insights on its peculiarities and charm

Burnt House has its own haunting music and message. . . confront one’s demons or run the risk of becoming a “moth to a flame.” No weak links in this cast. . . all hold the stage and inhabit their characters with realism.

Kristina

Brent Shultz and Ivette Dumeng in Kristina

Brent Shultz and Ivette Dumeng in Kristina

"Whitney Gail Aronson, the company’s associate artistic director, takes a stab at this rarely staged work and makes it accessible to the audience.   With no fuss or frills, Aronson brings to life the vibrant personality of Kristina—and one can’t help but feel this 16th century figure become palpable in the flesh and blood.

The real star of the production, however, is the controversial playwright Strindberg. His Kristina may never enjoy the laurels of Miss Julie. But it will always stand in bold relief in his canon. And attention must be paid."  - Theater Scene

 

"As the free-spirited queen, Ivette Dumeng captures both the arrogance and the vulnerability of a woman who has a towering responsibility that she might not really want. Other standouts in the cast include Brent Shultz as Kristina’s passionate new lover and Amy Fulgham as her loving mother."  - Theatre is Easy

 

"Ivette Dumeng makes a wonderful Kristina who is attractive, intelligent and behaves like a teenager who throws a wild party when her parents leave town. Jacob Troy, as Magnus, brings a serious parental tone to the court as he watches Kristina play at monarchy. Brent Shultz’s Tott makes sense of an ambiguous character in love with an idea rather than a human being. The large cast solidly supports the play." - Front Row Center

… the newly christened August Strindberg Repertory Theater has sprung to life with a dapper production of that Swedish master’s obscure comedy “Playing With Fire.”
