REVIEW: Cast's great work continues in 'Angels in America Part II'
WASHINGTON POST• OCTOBER 9, 2016 • BY PETER MARKS
In Part II of Tony Kushner’s wry masterwork, “Angels in America,” we learn that God has left the building. The befuddled spirits whom the Lord has deserted are reduced to sitting around heaven, trying to pick up signals on a scratchy radio for what they should do next.
REVIEW: ‘Angels in America: Perestroika’ at Round House Theatre and Olney Theatre Center
DC METRO THEATER ARTS• October 2, 2016 • BY DAVID FRISCIC
Prophetic Messages continue in the stunning second part of Tony Kushner’s masterwork, Angels in America Perestroika- now appearing at the Round House Theatre as a joint production of the Round House Theatre and the Olney Theatre Center. This production is directed by Ryan Rilette with dramatic, trenchant, and witty aplomb with a great respect for the text and the emotional, universal appeal of this very subversive yet humanistic play.
REVIEW: Olney's 'Anne Frank' is life-affirming, thanks to Carolyn Faye Kramer in title role

The impromptu prank is none too elaborate. But when a 13-year-old girl swaggers out of a room in a too-large boy’s coat and proceeds to impishly spoof a male walk, speaking in a low gruff macho voice, the comedy hits its mark. There’s not much competition for levity in this Amsterdam office annex, the hiding spot for a group of Jews during World War II. What really gives the gag brio, though, is the jokester herself: She’s so animated, in facial expression and gesture, and seems so attuned to the possibilities of the moment.
