There are 4 comments on A Standout at SpeakEasy Stage Company

  1. A tremendous and moving production. Professor Yo-EL Cassell’s essential contribution to Mishka’s performance and to the entire production is not highlighted or mentioned enough in this article though. The content taught within the movement curriculum at BU’s school of theater is a huge influence here, mentioned with how Mishka refers to elements and animal works as well as colors. There are so many moments in the play where the movement work beautifully and elegantly tells the story, highlights who the characters are physically and invites the audience to be moved as well.

  2. Saw this play a few weeks ago and it was *incredibly* moving and well done!! Mishka was definitely a stand-out (as was Dold) (honestly, all the actors were terrific), and it’s really cool to learn after-the-fact just how many BU-connections this play has. Definitely recommend to anyone who’s interested.

  3. This is a beautiful piece and a wonderful production! Mishka and the whole company present a compelling piece of theatre and the 3hrs of each part quickly fly by. I’m so glad I got to see it at SpeakEasy and was happy to see a number of BU people involved in the production.

  4. Yes couldn’t agree more Christian and FFURNI! Professor Yo-EL Cassell’s Movement and Intimacy Direction work is stellar in this production as well–so beautiful and integrative–like watching poetry in motion. We are so lucky have him as a professor at BU.
