Review by Cherie Messore
It’s funny how history can play tricks on you. Isn’t the past supposed to be static? But if history is driven by the people who made the moments, do their spirits live on to remind you, change you, haunt you? This mystical mixture of the past and its influence on the present is center stage in “John,” the season opener for Road Less Traveled Productions.
Review by Anne Marie Cusella
There is nothing fast-paced about John by award-winning playwright Annie Baker, Road Less Traveled Theater’s season-opening production. John meanders along with seemingly unrelated conversations, with pauses in sentences, and time delineated by the character Mertis Katherine (or Kitty as many call her) trundling over to a grandfather clock in the corner and slowly moving the hands.
