Broken Silence Theatre’s production of Equanimity was a fascinatingly hectic show. There were some very thought provoking ideas about the reality of dreams and what it is to be alone. At moments Equanimity was very confusing and the ending seemed a bit sudden and abrupt. All in all, I’d say that this is a fun show to see and that it is appropriate for ages 15 and up because of sexual themes.
I am a firm believer in only giving a show five stars if it truly deserves them, and Dana’s Boys’ Hour Town won those five stars fair and square. This Minnesotan themed rewrite of Thornton Wilder’s beloved play Our Town was a brilliant work of art that incorporated a lot of pop culture references and inside jokes about Minnesota’s history and culture. Sulia Altenberg’s ending monologue made my eyes tear up. Hour Town was a pleasure to watch and a joy to be a part of.
