The Gypsy Chain
While the dirigo group should be applauded for the scope of The Gypsy Chain, this ensemble-developed project about Earth First! activist David "Gypsy" Chain, who was killed defending the forests of Northern California from illegal clear-cutting, the onstage effectiveness of the work falls short of its sociopolitical message, while Gypsy's personal story is lost in the muddied construction of a play that isn't sure exactly what it wants to be.

The Middle of the Night
With its isolated farmhouse and unseen menace, The Middle of the Night may look like a conventional thriller, but playwright Lowell Bartholomee refuses to play by the rules, creating an offbeat drama that keeps us perpetually off-balance by playing against our expectations.
"...directs, and the artists he has engaged for this dirigo group premiere have grounded this play in very specific..."

Oct. 24, 2003 Arts Review by Robert Faires

In the dirigo group production Hedda, director Laura Somers reimagines Henrik Ibsen's classic as a perverse and sometimes brilliant Doris Day / Rock Hudson flick, coupling late 1950s zip -- party dresses and sweater vests, manhattans and vodka martinis, breezy entrances and exits -- with a forbidden sexuality that ratchets the tensions of Ibsen's play to a whole new level.
"...the new bride is expecting, for one). In this dirigo group production, all that is smashed quite to pieces,..."

June 13, 2003 Arts Review by Robi Polgar

In Bash, a collection of monologues by Neil LaBute, the protagonists appear to be considerate, decent people, but in the stories they share they prove themselves capable of committing crimes straight out of Greek tragedy, and the dirigo group production achieves a breezy intimacy with the audience, engaging us so thoroughly that when the darkness falls, we find it hard to abandon them.
"...these characters tell us as much in Bash, a grouping of three monologues by Neil LaBute. They all feature..."

True West
The dirigo group production of Sam Shepard's True West sees Corey Gagne and Judson L. Jones swapping the roles of petty criminal Lee and screenwriter Austin every other night. While both are exceptional actors, offering plenty of sharp character work, both versions bring that pervading sense of threat that gives the show the violent inevitability of Greek tragedy.
"...more than just another high-testosterone slugfest, however, is the dirigo group's casting switcheroo: Corey Gagne began the run playing..."
