Theatre Reviews

If you plan to see Die Roten Punk­te at The Pyra­mid, you should make it a dou­ble-head­er and take in this exquis­ite expres­sion of a Roman­ian folk tale, The sto­ry illus­trates many com­mon motifs from Euro­pean folk tales: for­bid­den love, the mys­tery, dan­ger and allure of the for­est, kind­ness to strangers, and ani­mals who speak. The trick is in the telling, and these two artists weave a com­pli­cat­ed but reward­ing tale, assum­ing mul­ti­ple char­ac­ters through deft use of voice, pos­ture, and min­i­mal props such as a scarf .

They also sing some Roman­ian folk songs beau­ti­ful­ly, songs that come across even if, like me, you do not speak Roman­ian. You need to pay close atten­tion to take it all in, but the effect is well worth the effort, and the pro­duc­tion deserves far larg­er than the ten or so peo­ple in the audi­ence the day I attended.
