Tony Foster’s “Craftsman” transports you to a time-traveling, reality-bending world anchored with heartfelt emotion and resonate hope. Six gifted actors flow effortlessly around the McCadden Theater (thanks to Shaina Rosenthal’s fluid direction) creating a beautiful parallel between time periods with stunning costumes, eerie sound effects and some great laughs. Impressive and haunting.
What I didn't like
McCadden Theater parking in Hollywood’s heart is a challenge. Allow extra time.
My overall impression
Like Foster’s “Asleep on a Bicycle”, this new play takes an important life event like shopping for a house and swirls it into a confection of dimensional longing that crackles and pops with unfulfilled dreams as two people see themselves for the first time through the refraction of another time period. Fascinating.
