SuperNova - Day ?

To Capture Light captures light

Posted on Fri, May 9, 2008 at 2:42 PM

The audience gasped with pleasure at the opening scene of To Capture Light—and that was a good indication of the general reaction to Luna/Sea’s beautifully rendered creation. The play tells the story of Canada’s first impressionist painter, Frances Jones Bannerman, artfully weaving the biographical facts of her life with imagined scenes of the painter interacting historical figures. Though the show dragged in spots and would have benefited from an intermission (to quench those persistent absinthe cravings), it was a highly entertaining evening. Bravo to the actors who switched so effortlessly and believably among characters and accents (Mauralea Austin’s Mary Cassatt is particularly delightful). Bravo also to Denyse Karn whose projections make the stage come alive.

To Capture Light runs Saturday May 10 and Sunday May 11 at 6pm at the Alderney Landing Theatre.
