Personal History of Sierra Item # 718,283,192! My first New York Theater Review!
I’ll let the full text of the review speak for itself, but here is the juicy, Rein-flavored part:
“Fuller has adapted the piece by adding a framing device that places this performance in a Maine mental hospital—the staff and a few of the patients are the players in the operetta-within-the-show. This set-up, if not absolutely necessary, adds a layer of lighthearted whimsy and allows for some playful gags, the best of which is the use of a puppet (Matilda) as one of the professional bridesmaids. Sierra Rein “plays” Matilda and she is superb—if G&S can’t encompass Avenue Q-style theatricks, then who can?” – Martin Denton · April 27, 2009 · nytheatre.com
