what they're saying about sweet, half-darkness...

The reviews are IN!!

"After her husband’s sudden death, Lucy (a grave and compelling Lindsey Barlag) is not “acting like Lucy”; she dons a blue dress for the funeral and confides that she feels almost happy. Like the character in Kate Chopin’s The Awakening—cited as one of the production’s inspirations—Lucy is bound by expectation but longs to forge a new identity in the crucible of her husband’s demise. We see hints of the other characters’ strictures as well; particularly well-conveyed is Sergio Soltero’s Alex, whose wry discomfort as Lucy’s “lunch friend” from work is delightful and unaffected. "-Megan Powell, TimeOut Chicago

“One of the marvelous things about the Chicago theater scene is the large variety we are offered. Some of the newer companies have come to the forefront in the past few years and I am sure there will be more. The Genesis Ensemble is one of these newer groups..."
-Alan Bresloff, Steadstyle Chicago

"You've got to root for Genesis Ensemble as their second full-length production shows them coming into their own... Director Amanda Jane Dunne gets many things right, from the sincere acting to the spot-on sound design."

-Keith Griffith, The Reader

“very intimate...well staged...bringing stories to the audience that deal with very human experiences and develop their own scripts with input from all involved.”
-Alan Bresloff, Steadstyle Chicago
