Reviews:

WOW The Eccentricities of a Nightingale by Stage Scene LA “Ginna Carter gives quite possibly the year’s most brilliant dramatic performance…absolutely superb revival. Impeccably directed…an absolute must-see”

THE ECCENTRICITIES OF A NIGHTINGALE Reviewed by Stage Raw. “ Williams’ fans and lovers of great acting should seek out this impressive and moving production.”

A Nightingale Searches for Love. …. remarkable play that is currently being performed by the fine actors of the Pacific Resident Theatre.Santa Monica Daily Press. “ Well directed by Dana Jackson.”

Total Theater Review “Director Dana Jackson deserves high praise for having put together this well-acted, handsome-looking production of Williams’s bitter-sweet but strong and compassionate rewrite of Summer and Smoke” Total Theater

Broadway World Review “The most glorious scenes of romantic longing ever witnessed on the stage…subtly seductive. Top notch cast” – Broadway World



Poetry of the heart ignites powerful desires that can no longer be ignored by Alma. The preacher’s daughter boldly seizes on a chance to follow her heart’s inclinations when John Buchanan returns from medical school to live in their small town where, too often, dreams die quickly. Tennessee Williams’s subtly seductive play centers on the passionately complex and sometimes cruel relationships to which love becomes vulnerable, when we are strong enough to allow it.

“I have found it easier to identify with the characters who verge upon hysteria, who were frightened of life, who were desperate to reach out to another person. . . “
— Tennessee Williams

“Remarkable production…a rewarding revival – LA Times “CRITICS CHOICE“This richly atmospheric, emotionally rewarding revival holds our rapt attention. Williams devotees and newcomers alike should flock”LA Times

The Eccentricities of a Nightingale Review – Summer Seduction and Spiritual Awakening. “A moving production…this is a play worth savoring. Skilled cast…summer seduction” – LA Splash
