And they just keep rolling in. The latest list of Los Angeles Faves in 2012 Theater is from KCRW theater critic Anthony Byrnes.
Love this thought from Anthony on the musical Bad Apples at Circle X, a show I will be making a more concerted effort in catching when it returns in 2013.
Circle X showed real dramatic guts by producing a musical about, of all things, the Abu Ghraib prison scandal called Bad Apples. A polyamorous love story, I found myself laughing at the detestable, aroused by what at first seemed repugnant, and tapping my toes to a tune about torture. It’s also a compelling argument for why we need small theater tackling big ideas.
