Review: Until the Flood
There is a serenity to the space, with its dozens of glowing candles, flowers, and stuffed animals ringing the raised stage. It’s clearly a memorial to someone gone, the kind that springs up for victims of tragedy, those who have been killed unexpectedly, unjustly, and since we’ve seen so many of these – too many – we sense the sorrow surrounding it.
