La Llorona - 2

Dear readers and #LAThtr aficionadi,

Here follows my most recent Fringe reviews (this year) for the critical website Stage Raw — which contains current arts and theater coverage from our intrepid team of journalists & critics.

Happy reading!

A Very Modern Marriage.

In Arthur M. Jolly’s domestic comedy, A Very Modern Marriage, a bickering couple finds an unorthodox solution to their troubled marriage.

Arriving home from a romantic dinner out, Tina (Deborah Jensen) is surprised by a thoughtful gift from Matthew, her husband of six years, played by Donal Thoms-Cappello. Their amorous bliss rapidly devolves into a shouting match when Matthew reminds Tina that she has forgotten their anniversary. They squabble over who is more passively-aggressive, over the difference between a truce and calling for peace…

 La Llorona

The first thing you need to know about La Llorona is that the first scene – and every second scene thereafter – is in Spanish. Based on a popular Hispanic legend – the Weeping Woman – Matt DeNoto’s drama makes a parallel between the original myth, with its roots in the Greek tale of Medea, and a contemporary family that has fallen on hard times. Lupe (Dolores Quintana) is a single mother trying to raise her sullen teenaged daughter Nicolaza (Amanda Newman) and five-year-old son Jorge (Lakshika DeSilva). In trying to manage her stubborn, squabbling children, Lupe and her brother Eduardo (Abel Horwitz) try to keep them in line with the tale of La Llorona – a wailing ghost who abducts naughty children.
