July 13, 1992 | ROBERT KOEHLER, SPECIAL TO THE TIMES
Traipsing through a stage area strewn with sheet metal, nails, buzz saws and 2-by-4s, director Brian Kulick looks back at his visitor and says, "This place is chaos. It can be pretty dangerous." Actually, this is a good shorthand description of Georg Buchner's revolutionary 1837 tragedy, "Woyzeck." But Kulick might also be talking about his own imposing task staging one of theater's supreme challenges, a 155-year-old play that remains daringly experimental.

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.

In the age of AIDS, in an election year with the arts under assault, how should artists respond? "Love of Three Oranges," a group collaboration at LACE conceived by Brian Kulick, created and performed by a talented young multiethnic ensemble, answers these questions even as it asks them. Form and content merge in a performance work of impressive sophistication.

By now, 11 years after its inaugural production, Long Beach Opera seems to have carved for itself a place in the national scene. And that place is unique. What, for instance, could be comparable to the oddball triple bill impresario Michael Milenski is presenting this week, in place of the originally promised (now rescheduled) "Pelleas et Melisande"?

Few things are more exciting in the theater than pure creativity, and so it proves in "The Mysteries" at the Actors' Gang. Director-adapter Brian Kulick's exploration of medieval mystery plays (and their antecedents) is wildly inventive, with one bemusing drawback. The cycle plays of the Middle Ages were religious pageants, acquiring secular tactics upon leaving the church to illuminate the masses.

We know we can expect good things from the Actors' Gang, but "Woyzeck," at Hollywood's 2nd Stage, may be its best thing yet. Georg Buchner's choppy, expressionistic treatise on social oppression, left in pieces at the time of his death yet far ahead of its time, has been adapted by Han Ong and masterminded by director Brian Kulick.

Charles Dillingham's first challenge in his new job as managing director of Center Theatre Group may well be to save $1 million. The recent shortfall in fund raising for the Music Center's Unified Fund will lead to cutbacks at all of the center's resident groups, and the CTG--which programs the Mark Taper Forum and the Ahmanson seasons--is no exception. "We face a potential $1-million cut in this year's (planned $4.4-million) allocation," said the CTG's Gordon Davidson.
