Cameri Theatre: An Enemy of the Public

“The Times They Are A Changing”, sing the media troubadours in the Cameri Theatre’s clever, provocative, and entertaining production of An Enemy of the Public, a modern adaptation inspired by Henrik Ibsen’s An Enemy of the People. Many changes have been made to Ibsen’s classic, yet it seems like the more things change the more they stay the same – the essence is retained in the tension between the desire for truth and justice

Venom, obsession, intrigue and farce, mark Beer Sheva Theatre’s superb production of Jean Cocteau’s Les Parents Terribles, directed by Gadi Roll. The play is a meeting of extremes, a melodrama of operatic proportions, with comical unlikely coincidences, yet at its core, an indictment of social conventions, and that bourgeois concept – the family, with its internecine conflict among those who profess to love. It’s a tight-rope act, balancing between telenovela and tragedy. In less capable hands, it may falter, under Gadi Roll’s direction – it soars. Les Parents Terribles is …

Hidden Figures

Hidden Figures is a wonderfully feel-good film that surges with the excitement of the race to space, and the nascent Civil Rights Movement. It’s a riveting story that follows Katherine Goble, Dorothy Vaughn, and Mary Jackson, three African-American women, as they struggle with the tensions of racial discrimination and sexism of early 1960s America, while their mathematical and engineering talents play a crucial role in advancing space travel. A story all the more amazing as it is based on fact, perhaps the most surprising aspect of the film is that …
