    Nineteen-eighty one, the end of it, was the last time Alice Wainwright had acted. She was five years old, and had played Gretl von Trapp in a parks department production of The Sound of Music. She had started crying midway through the play, and was swiftly whisked off stage, and removed from the second act. Thrown-up macaroni ended up on her mother’s blouse.

    She thought, for a moment, that she could blend easily enough into a background. But a queasy feeling began to bubble up in the back of her throat, and she sort of smiled at the contact information’s illegibility.

    Probably for the best.

    From: The online repository of The Columbia University Weekly Lifestyle and Local Arts Review:

    But I Don’t Speak Spanish
    By: Fara K. Yazin - Law; Columbia University

    I must first preface this by saying that my critical comments earlier in the year about the Verne Thespian Society were perhaps a bit without ground. Director Jacques Verne and his cast have clearly found their footing in the months since this spring’s production of Nobody Loves an Albatross.

    At its recent dress rehearsal (I know a guy), I was treated with a glimpse not only into the seedy world of Seis de Espadas – a semi-true story of a young girl forced into prostitution, but also an insight into the renaissance of off-Broadway theatre in New York. Yes, some of it is inaccessible. Yes, some of it is probably some sort of inside joke. And yes, it gets weird to the point of making the audience noticeably uncomfortable, at times. But after checking off these apparent must-do items in not-ready-for-primetime productions, Verne creates a world that is altogether believable for the three-hour trek.

    For those familiar with the story (I was not, going in), the original Reno, Nevada setting has been exchanged for a Hopper-esque coffee-and-cigarettes city that really serves to paint its protagonist and narrator, Carla (Maria Guzman), in a light much less saturated by inopportune circumstance than by a simple lack of options.

    The cast (all but one being under 25 years old) absolutely shines. To wit, Dino (Anthony Gordon) has an extended monologue in the second act that stuck with me even after a day of television and casework. Costumes, too, seem period-relative, and combined with a convincing set allow the production to teeter somewhere between the brink of reality and unfiltered noir, all with a vein of subtle absurdity brought on by the change in period, throughout.

    In all, it’s one that I plan to see during the actual run. Jacques Verne has clearly grown more comfortable in his position, and the play shows off the society’s maturity. If for no other reason, though, go to see the Pharaoh Theatre. It’s a beautiful venue, and there’s an impressive bar service throughout the show.



    At-a-Glance:
    What: Seis de Espadas, dir. Jacques Verne
    When: Nov. 29 – Dec. 9, Mo.-Thurs. 9p
    Where: The Pharaoh Theatre (BMT Brighton Line - King’s Highway)
    Tickets: $15 adult, $12 student and senior
    Info: Verne Thespian Society – www.thevernesociety.net
    Verdict: Go see it
