Hark, the Cellos, Directed by Steve Boockvor
by Elizabeth Young

While all performances and plays are good, and too numerous to mention, there are some standouts among them.

A long term love affair plays out under the droll, watchful eye of a bartender in Hark, The Cellos, written by Jocelyn Beard and directed by Steve Boockvor. This is a funny riff on what people are actually clinging to. The performances in this piece are excellent.

Peter Haynes as the agitated married lover is terrific. Stephanie Rosenberg plays the wry bartender with excellent timing, and Valerie Huegel plays the non-plussed, long time lover to perfection.

The Ridgefield Press, by Adam Horvath
Directors such as Steve Boockvor should be credited for their creative use of lighting, costume, and set design which contribute greatly to the audience's engagement and sense of authenticity. Actors honesty in emotion and physicality supercedes the dialogue of their roles. This honesty can be found in legitimate portrayals of "Alice" by Valerie Huegel . . . Peter Haynes appeals to any observer with his adept performance as "Bertram" in his Hark the Cellos role.
