We are extremely honored and flattered to learn that John Townsend of Lavender Magazine has named our January production of Orpheus Descending one of the 10 Best Shows of 2014. (You can see John's review from last winter right here). From all of us here at Six Elements, we want to say thank you to our outstanding cast, crew, and designers, and to the audience that turned out in last winter's extreme cold for a sweltering tale of passion and imprisonment. We knew we were creating some of our best work yet, and thanks to you all we are in some pretty august company (look at the rest of that list, there are some incredible groups and people in there!).
And if that isn't exciting enough, Townsend also recognizes Company Member Mike Lubke, the man behind the craziness that is Human Combat Chess, for his work on Theatre in the Round's Beaux Strategem, calling it the Best Stage Combat Direction of 2014.
Don't worry, though, we aren't just resting on our laurels. We are already hard at work planning Human Combat Chess 2015, and we're in preproduction for Tom Stoppard's Hapgood, a Cold War spy drama of political, emotional and quantum entanglement, directed by Justin Alexander.
Sign up for our mailing list to see what's in store for Six Elements Theatre.
Brave the Elements,
-Philip D Henry, Company Member
