Beowulf Alley Theatre
Finds Success With Off-beat Comedy:
Kathleen Allen, Arizona Daily Star:
Beowulf's production has some delicious touches. There's a luscious dream sequence And one glorious moment when she (Amy Almquist) tells off her oily lawyer husband Almquist let out an eloquent, devastating slew of insults at bullet-speed. She never stopped to catch her breath, and you could feel the audience hold theirs as they silently cheered the character on.
James Reel, Tucson Weekly:
Part hip, pop-psych farce, part social critique, part theater of the absurd, part screwball revenge fantasy, part con-artist caper (one way or another, almost every character is conning at least one of the others), Criminal Hearts can't quite decide what sort of play it wants to be, but its indecision creates a more interesting, less-clichéd work than it would have been had it settled into a single genre.
Chuck Graham, Tucson Citizen:
This contrast in language choices gives Criminal Hearts a sweet-and-sour effect that's very tasty Deeper aspects of the play begin with just such politically charged questions. Does crime have a gender? Would there be less crime if women were in charge of society? What about Bo? She's a criminal. What about Ata? She's acting like a criminal. So is crime just a point of view, determined by whomever is in charge?
"Criminal Hearts raises more questions than it answers. But they are very interesting questions.
