Last Chance

October 09, 2003

The Mysteries: Director-adapter Brian Kulick's exploration of medieval mystery plays (and their antecedents) is wildly inventive, and Richard Hoover creates a striking setting. Act 1 presents Old Testament sagas drawn from the British York, Wakefield and Chester cycles, closing on the Nativity. Act 2 brings New Testament accounts reenvisioned by 20th century authors Borislav Pekic, Dario Fo and Mikhail Bulgakov, ending with

a York Cycle summation. Kulick commands a full-throttle cast and designers, who demonstrate full-frontal commitment.

-- David C. Nichols

Ends Sunday at the Actors' Gang Theatre, 6209 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood. For mature audiences. Nudity. (323) 465-0566.
