The Old Woman

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 6.02.39 PMIf you can, do not miss “The Old Woman” at Brooklyn Academy of Music. This amazing spectacle, choreographed and directed by the forever creative genius Robert Wilson, is performed by Willem Dafoe and Mikhail Baryshnikov. This vaudeville adaptation of a short story by Daniil Kharms is one of the most entertaining 100 minutes I have spent in a long time. The rest of the audience was equally hypnotized by this pair of great actors as they danced, sang, cried, told odd jokes and tried to do away with each other in the strangest ways. The changing sets by Robert Wilson were another great product of this master. Entertainment at its best.
