Sam Shepard

THEATER REVIEW: “Buried Child” by Sam Shepard is a challenging play

Sam Shepard is an acquired taste, and “Buried Child” in particular is close to a horror story about seriously twisted folks. It’s not for all playgoers, but if you’re up for challenging drama, this is, as Kristianne Kurner noted, “the granddaddy of them all.”

THEATER REVIEW: “Simpatico” is another gem from Sam Shepard

Twists, turns and noir humor – yep, it's Sam Shepard, and though spending an evening with Shepard's folks frequently makes me feel I've been clubbed with a bat for a few hours, this is one of the best productions of a Shepard play I've seen.
