Little Wars - TCTB Review Roundup

PRIME Productions is a new theater company that "seek[s] to explore, illuminate and support women over fifty and their stories through the creative voice of performance." Yay!

Their first show is Little Wars, which runs through May 21 at Mixed Blood Theatre Company.

Our bloggers had a LOT to say:

Compendium - Minneapolis:
"We need more pieces like Little Wars to keep pushing ourselves forward and to learn to harness the gifts that all members of our society, no matter how young or old, are able to give." 

Single White Fringe Geek: "Little Wars is a great launching pad for Prime Productions, and a great showcase for all these engaging performers. Treat yourself."

Say Entirely: "If you’re looking for a story about nice girls who nod and agree and live happily ever after, look elsewhere. If you like your stories raw and your heroines with a glass of liquor in hand, Little Wars is it."

Talkin' Broadway: "What are we to make of a play that works so hard to sanitize the biographies of people like Stein and Toklas (and Christie) and to imagine them as so much better than they were?"

Cherry and Spoon: "Go support the work of female artists in their prime telling a story of historical female artists in their prime, in what is also an engaging and entertaining evening of theater."
