2 by Ionesco The Lesson & Jack orThe Submission
Directed by Dragan Torbica.
Chicago Theatre Beat says:
“The success of the piece lies in the ability of the director and actors to take unconventional dialogue and make it come alive, creating huge, colorful characters and delivering the dense, illustrative language with incredible vocal skill. The cast is outstanding, the direction inspired, and the use of music highly effective.”
“Director Dragan Torbica clearly understands that Ionesco’s bizarre gestures must be grounded in truthful human interaction. He lets a long scene between Jack and his triple-nosed betrothed play out with revelatory humanity.”
