Cycle of love

June 19, 2003|David C. Nichols

Ten Tiny Love Stories

Distinctive authorial authority distinguishes "Ten Tiny Love Stories" in its world premiere at the Marilyn Monroe Theatre. Rodrigo Garcia's monologue cycle about love found and lost reveals an original voice of exciting potential. Director Luis Alfaro, working with a fine design effort unified by Jose Lopez's lean lighting, invests the febrile material with deceptive simplicity. The six actresses are outstanding. Although these "Ten Tiny" tales could bear expansion to a baker's dozen, the bridges their expert interpreters build between Garcia's dreams and ours are arresting, regardless.
