So, Twin Cities Theater Bloggers... What did you think of The Bluest Eye at Guthrie Theater? (now through May 21)
"Have you ever seen something that made the pit of your stomach drop out of your body? Something that physically reached into your chest and pulled out your literal heartstrings?" 
Play off the Page caught the show and a post-play discussion: 
"Some stories are there for our delight, to make us laugh or bring us joy. Other stories shed light into the dark places. And, we need to tell them all, read them and watch them, so that no one, or their experiences, are forgotten." 

Cherry and Spoon adds: "This cast and creative team, most of whom are new to the Guthrie, bring Toni Morrison's story to heartbreakingly vivid life in an intense, engaging, at times humorous, and incredibly moving hour and 45 minutes of theater."
