Most importantly for the story, Johnson (clothed brilliantly in Christopher Metzger’s costumes) commands the stage as Rome’s diva La Tosca, a woman caught up in political machinations, which at first only baffle her. Johnson transforms her Tosca from target to weapon without ever losing control of her voice’s thrilling sound — a truly moving rendering of one of Italian opera’s most riveting creations.

"Part One features three cavemen—Charlie, Banesh, and Billith (played by Rebecca S’manga Frank, Georgia Lee King, and Brian Bock)—with beautifully grotesque crocheted breasts, vaginas, and a penis to represent their near-nakedness. (The second act similarly featured long blond braids made of yellow yarn, suggesting small gestures toward Brechtian alienation on the part of costume designer Christopher Metzger)."

"The other production elements, which include Christopher Metzger's costumes, Alejandro Fajardo's lights, and Brandon Wolcott's sound, contribute nicely to creating a backwoods, small-mountain-town feeling about ready to explode with contemporary rage."
