Two More Mother Courage Reviews

The Potomac Stages review of Mother Courage is kind of upbeat: “In these days of bad behavior by so many, is the gritty, scratch and claw world of Mother Courage and Her Children really so far-fetched? Why see this production which dramatized both big and small miseries so tangibly that they cannot be escaped? There is only struggle, death, and – if fortunate – a chance to wake up the next day. Here we have Mother Courage and Her Children, which premiered in 1941, as a darkly visible classic revived for a new generation to partake of its rough magic and bitter instruction.”

And Charlene James Duguid told me last night that she “didn’t dislike” the show! (Oops — clarification from Charlene.  “I said I didn’t not like the production.”)
