A letter from our friend and loyal audience member, Uriel Meshoulam:
I recently saw Never Ever Ever – a remarkable play [by Sivan Ben Yishai] that moves and inspires, and admirably performed by Jordan Ahnquist who plays several characters in almost a magical manner.
Israeli Stage never disappoints! My wife and I are trying to make sure that we stay in town just so we don’t miss any of Israeli Stage’s performances. In the past few years we have enjoyed many excellent plays and performances. If you like your theater pure, the Israeli Stage is uniquely satisfying. Not only in that they perform plays written by contemporary Israeli playwrights, but mostly in the way they perform them – actors stand on stage with no sets, minimum props, and text in hand. The end result is never less than excellent drama that firmly stands on the text of the play.
Recent highlights for us were Hard Love by Motti Lerner and Hanoch Levin’s The Whore from Ohio. Levin is an incredible playwright and I so look forward to seeing Make My Heart Flutter, (which I happened to see in Israel).
I would like to applaud Guy Ben-Aharon. The Israeli Stage is an incredible project, primarily because of its refreshing approach to presenting drama to its audience. We should all feel gratitude and admiration for this work. I am amazed by Guy’s ability to build up such a superb enterprise from scratch, and thanks to his Board and Staff for keeping it so successful for several years now.
