BRANDON DOO certified reviewer June 23, 2015
The theater program would have you believe that Anti Gone was a punk adventure about counter culture what with the spray paint lettering design on the pamphlet when in fact “Antigone” is a Greek tragedy. I bit my lip for what was sure to be a slog through antiquity. I was pleasantly surprised. The story of heroine Antigone is bold and empowering and performed very well by Brittany McGregor. But it was Creon that I enjoyed the most. Played by Miguel Perez, Creon is a tragic villain whose conflicting morals make him very sympathetic. All actors carry their roles well and utilize the small theater space to their advantage. From the front row, I had rested my feet on the stage until Creon’s booming voice made me want to reconsider.

Really young talent who, for the most part, are good. This was a master class due to the superb Miguel Perez who plays Creon…who largely dominates the play with a very good Antigone. "Amazing" because of Perez. Such a terrific riff on the story of Antigone…do not miss this!!!!... full review

To be fair, I didn't see the entire play. Partly because there were no seats and my date and I were sitting on the floor in the isle. But when people came rushing behind us in the dark clamoring for non-existent seats, it got uncomfortable very fast. So, it came down to watching the entire play while standing and peering over the tops of people's heads (I am short) or leaving. I would have stayed if the acting was amazing. But instead the lead delivered her lines without any depth. It was almost like she was trying to remember her lines- stuck on the words, not building a relationship. So again... it could have been the distraction from the audience that made this performance so lack luster. But what I experienced wasn't good at all.... full review

ANOUILH’S ANTIGONE (Gold Medal) Brittany Kilcoyne McGregor, Miguel Perez, Tyler Peck, Katarina Rose Fabic, Michael Vega, Amy Huckabay, John Moeslein and Ross Thomas. Directed by Joseph Matarrese. It is annoying to me that this review comes at the end Fringe and will do no good as far as raising awareness of this show to the festival goers. But with three hundred plus productions that’s going to happen. So all this review can do now is list the talented cast and credit the skilled director for staging a stripped down, bare staged Antigone that came as close to knocking my socks off as anything I’ve seen in years. Kudos to all involved, it was amazing work. I SAW 57 SHOWS THIS YEAR AND REVIEWED 43 OF THEM. TO READ ALL MY RE... full review
