DISGRACED (MARK TAPER)

Trevor solo again – Jerusha was at Fringe all month. And again no pic.

The Los Angeles production of Disgraced by Ayad Akhtar is a show that needs to be seen. The acting is superb, especially by Hari Dhillon who makes you feel all the emotions on the scale, from rage to empathy. The star of the show though is the writing. Akhtar’s subtle details and turns feel like they come from Albee, Miller, or Letts. The shock value of some of the language he uses will make your jaw drop. Throughout the show there were gasps and cheers from the audience (some of them are surprising). I went into the show blind (not knowing really anything about the production) and I think you should too because it will take you on an unexpected journey. This is a modern classic that is playing all over the country and for good reason. Don’t miss out on a modern classic.
