George Bernard Shaw
|Michael Saenz & Monica Cappuccini|
For those who have never seen Shaw’s Major Barbara, Pear Street’s current rendering is certainly going to remind them why the Nobel prize winner for literature is in fact one of the past century’s greatest and most loved playwrights as well as introduce them to one his most loved stories and set of quirky characters. For those who have seen other, more-memorable productions in the past, this may be a revisit that is OK to skip; but the production’s first act does make it a fairly worthwhile outing.
