DIRECTION - Old Wicked Songs

COLONY THEATER
FEBRUARY 2012
WRITTEN BY JON MARANS
DIRECTED STEPHANIE VLAHOS




"Director Stephanie Vlahos guides the remarkably natural performances with a light hand." -  CULTURE MONSTER - LA TIMES

"Stephanie Vlahos directs with a keen eye for comedy and a sharp awareness of the emotional and musical nuances. The play makes large demands on its actors. They must not only chart the intricate interplay between their characters; they are called upon to speak and sing in German and play challenging works on the piano."
- BACKSTAGE - NEAL WEAVER

"The Colony has killed two birds with a single stone by securing the creative services of performer-director Stephanie Vlahos, whose Christmas staging of Giancarlo Menotti’s Amahl And The Night Visitors has been a Pasadena Playhouse treat these past two Decembers. Vlahos knows her music as well as she does her acting, and as director of the Colony production has secured pitch-perfect performances from its two stars."  -LA STAGE TIMES - STEVEN STANLEY

"The Colony’s director, Stephanie Vlahos, is a former professional opera singer herself, and her knowledge of the interplay between teacher and student is probably more authentic than you’ll encounter in most revivals of Marans’ work. She has found two actors in Towey and Danz who convincingly play and sing their own music without relying on recordings and they are no less convincing in their spoken dialogue.  This is a remarkable revival of a play that appears to be close to achieving classic stature."
