Theater Review
Symbolic ‘Builder’ Constructs Artist’s Life
By F. KATHLEEN FOLEY
“One of Ibsen’s later works, “The Master Builder” is also one of his most meta-physically fervid, a transparent autobiography of an artist at the peak of his powers who fears the inevitable plunge. ”
“… Newman tears into the role like the ravening bird of Ibsen’s imagination.”
” Quivering with Scandinavian angst and sexual repression, Fancy’s Solness is a brilliant blend of lechery and longing that, once seen, will live in memory. ”

LA Times Review
“…towering performances in the two central roles take Ibsen’s work to stomach-wrenching heights””
