Review by ALEX SCOTT

My overall impression

Anastasia Coon’s beautiful one woman show Gracie and Rose is everything you want in a theatrical experience. The set, the lights, the costumes, everything works together in this production quite nicely.

Taking everything into consideration, I thought the sound design became a bit too basic, and really overbearing, I would have loved this play with a violin accompaniment at times – it just felt too simple to me – and again – too loud, but that can easily be fixed. At times, I also questioned the choice to make this a solo show – like I said, it’s beautiful – 100% – but at times I found myself wishing Ms. Coon would differentiate more between each of her characters.

It’s a rare treat when an actor will bear their soul on stage for you – Gracie and Rose is just that, a rare, delicious, treat.
