BWW Review: THE MADRES at Teatro Vista
“THE MADRES is astounding as well for bringing this devastating part of Argentina's history to life through the story of the family at the center of the piece. Walker has so profoundly humanized the situation at hand, and seeing THE MADRES was an intensely emotional experience. Of course, the heart-wrenching emotion embedded in the play is further emphasized by Teatro Vista’s cast, guided by Artistic Director Ricardo Gutiérrez at the helm...
Teatro Vista's cast is first-rate and owns every moment of the piece. In terms of timeliness and emotional impact, THE MADRES demands to be seen. This is one of the strongest productions I've seen recently in terms of its ability to command raw emotion; it is impossible to leave THE MADRES without feeling deeply for the characters on the stage."
Teatro Vista's THE MADRES by Stephanie Alison Walker plays through May 27 at the Richard Christiansen Theater at Victory Gardens, 2433 North Lincoln Avenue.
