With several sold-out shows of The Emperor Jones and a great reception of the new play N, the 17th Annual Eugene O’Neill Festival “Revolution” came to a close on October 2. The reviews were outstanding!

“…a powerful portrait of a forceful figure that may have met his match in the most shadowy recesses of his own mind.”

“…few are as dramatically impressive as Dorian Lockett, playing the title role of Brutus Jones.”
Susan Steinberg, The Independent
“…most impressive is the mood setting, hauntingly perfect percussionist Ngaire.”
Charles Jarrett, Rossmoor News
