REVIEWS

Bliss (or emily post is dead!): Moving Arts

“Funny and powerful in equal measure…a terrific spirit-rouser at a time when women everywhere are calling out bad behavior and demanding equality…Moving Arts energetically brings Jami Brandli’s script to life...

“In Andrew Carter’s portrayal, [Apollo] is a guffaw-inducing caricature of male narcissism, preening in a shiny gold mini-toga and cape.”

-- Daryl H. Miller, LA Times (Critic's Pick)

“Carter…is in crisp comic form as the arrogant Apollo, and he’s equally good in the less showy role of Clementine’s smoldering swain. The comedy takes off whenever he appears on stage; his final scene with Cassandra elevates both St. Clair’s performance and the production, in a satisfying a showdown between a phony self-obsessed male “divinity” and an honest down-to-earth mortal.”

-- Deborah Klugman, STAGERAW
