Great Critical Response to 4.48 Psychosis / Only 4 Performances Left!

You only have four performances left (Thursday, August 2-Saturday, August 4, 8PM, Sunday, August 5, 7PM) to catch 4.48 Psychosis at the Temescal Arts Center, 511 48th Street, Oakland.

The production has received great critical praise.

Nicole Gluckstern of KQED finds that “Through their unconventional staging they imbue this difficult piece with moments of real beauty and empathy, drawing the audience to bear witness to a human condition that is so frequently ignored, misinterpreted, or rejected.

She cites the three woman cast of Anastasia Barron, Jody Christian, and Adrian Deane as being “strong” and “fearless.”

For her full review:

We enjoyed the attention to detail in critic Kate Tinney’s review. She even mentioned the breathing of the actors.

She sees that “the lighting design by Nathan Bogner is a spectacular anchor throughout the show.”

She writes that “This production of ‘4.48 Psychosis’ makes extraordinary use of physical theater. The actors stretch themselves both emotionally and physically. What’s more, the audience is so close that it can see every knee shake or deep breath as the actors warp themselves from graceful to grotesque and back again.”

For her full review:

Charles Lewis III ranks 4.48 Psychosis as being one of the best shows he’s seen this year. He gives us a grade of A-, so we’ll keep trying hard to get that raised up!

For his full review:

Christine Okon observes that “Director Robert Estes and choreographer Bridgette Loriaux create a visceral and verbal experience where three brilliant performers (Anastasia Barron, Jody Christian, and Adrian Deane) dance, interact, intertwine, explode, recoil and literally throw themselves against the wall…”

She sees that our production renders the play “beautifully.”
