Panelists for the League of Cincinnati Theatres (LCT) have awarded Untethered Theatre’s production of All New People a 4 star recommendation.
In All New People, by Zach Braff, Charlie’s birthday first goes wrong when Emma stumbles in, disrupting his suicide attempt. Taking this as divine intervention, Emma demands that she, Myron – a firefighter with some interesting extra-curriculars – and the bubbly Kim throw Charlie a party to convince him to keep living. Throughout the course of the night, aided by flashbacks, the group learns that everyone is running from something, but in the end, life is what you make it.
Panelists called All New People “humorous, highly paced and intriguing…funny and bittersweet”. They praised director Jared Doren: “he has the actors prepared and in synch…he gave them plenty of opportunies to stretch.” The entire ensemble was applauded for the “depth and believability” of their performances.
Untethered’s All New People runs through November 30th. Tickets can be purchased at http://www.untetheredtheater.com/
Nominations for LCT awards will be determined and announced at the end of the season and winners awarded at the annual LCT party in the summer.
