Greggory Moore

0 Articles

Trapped within in the ironic predicament of wanting to know everything (more or less) while believing it may not be possible really to know anything at all, Greggory Moore is nonetheless dedicated to a life of study, be it of books, people, nature, or that slippery phenomenon we call the self. And from time to time he feels impelled to write a litt

REASONS TO BE PRETTY @ Long Beach Playhouse

I don't know anything Neil LaBute has done since 2000's Nurse Betty, but reasons to be pretty is exactly what you would expect if the only data you had was that the author of In the Company of Men and Your Friends & Neighbors had tried his hand at ro

BEH: AN IMPROVISED PLAY @ the Garage Theatre

Last year when the Garage Theatre transformed Tom Stoppard's radio play Darkside into an onstage production, considering my bookcase full of Stoppard and Dark Side of the Moon's being the so

THE CLEAN HOUSE @ Little Fish Theatre

There are no rules in theatre. Sure, you can say there must be characters (although Samuel Beckett's Breath, what?) or that there's got to be some sort of stage/frame where the play takes place, but you'd be missing the point. In spirit, there may be conventions, but there are no

A RAISIN IN THE SUN @ Long Beach Playhouse

There are people who will tell you we live in a post-racial society. We have a Black president, they say. All citizens—regardless of ethnic extraction—enjoy the same rights and freedoms. Minorities even get special treatment when it comes to college admission and all sorts of stuff. Th

WHAT LOVE IS and THE UNCERTAINTY FILES (U.S. premieres) @ the Garage Theatre

I was surprised to find that Linda McLean is a playwright of some accomplishment, having written works for the BBC and serving as chairperson for Playwrights' Studio, Scotland between 2008­'15. I fully expected that the author What Love Is and The Uncertainty Files, two
