"Cecilia Djurberg wonder why Tennessee Williams piece played on the Generator"
"There are many jokes about gitarrkillar that they are so self-absorbed that they believe themselves to be the centre of the universe. The Tennessee Williams play Orpheus descending, from 1957 are among the most overworked in the genre. Williams interpreted if Orfeusmyten, not just one, but two times, and put a guitar in hand and a ormskinnsjacka on his Orpheus. You know, the god who failed to retrieve his beloved Eurydice from the underworld then he could not help but turn to admire her beauty. "
"The first version of Battle of Angels, totalfloppade, but was played at the royal dramatic theatre as late as 2010 in a strained modernised interpretation with the same English title as the film, with Marlon Brando: the Man in the ormskinnsjackan."
"non Generator play Björn Bengtsson now quite dimmed he gitarrgud who, alone and unhappy wandered around and singing her songs, stop in a historic village in the american south for a break, which becomes a descent into hell. His name, Valentine Xavier, is a pun, where the last name is pronounced saviour. According to the script, claimed to be irresistible to women, and to admit that they want to buy him. This will gitarrkilleskämtets ironic punchline."
"Not that there's anything wrong with the squinty, gitarrplinkande Björn Bengtsson thus, without that it is hard to tear away the piece from the american 50's, and its gender roles. Sexanspelningarna shocks hardly in the present and convinces not on the Generator, where kvinnorollerna, including Mia benson's and Kicki Brambergs pointed prussiluskor, is so colorful made it extra difficult to buy the premise."
"nHär marks the stage set sparsely standing fluorescent tubes, the walls of the Lady's store, open for both intrusion and byskvaller. The world of the play in our time, however, the relevant themes of racism and främlingsförakt ports sadly in the shadow of the jukebox and neonljuset and echoing away as hollow as the uppmickade the replicas in the airy scenrummets difficult acoustics. The slow pace of the game will be never enough suspenseful to be a helvetesskildring, even if a mardrömsmässande sound design partially compensates."
"nRunar Hodnes regi gives me no good answers as to why this piece is played right now. Hope simply that Tennessee Williams names to sell tickets? Coincidentally, plays the royal dramatic theatre, also his popular Line lust in our. Let us hope that Stefan Larsson has a really good idea with the pjäsvalet."
