10/25/22: Wuthering Heights
What: St. Ann's Warehouse hosts the NY transfer of Emma Rice and Wise Children's adaptation of the Emily Bronte novel, about the toxic love between Heathcliff and Catherine.
And? A repeat for me, since I saw the livestream via Bristol Old Vic last November. This production is a great demonstration of me falling in love with the storytelling without actually liking the story being told. I love Emma Rice's work so much, y'all. She's a beautifully inventive storyteller and is amazing at drilling into the core emotion, breaking our hearts when moments ago we were laughing at how silly everything is. If she were to direct a story I loved, it would probably land in my Best Theater Ever list.
