True artistry can be a joy to watch. When an artist’s passion and drive comes through on stage, no matter the material, the performance has an added boost of emotion and drive. In Gertrude Stein SAINTS!, it’s evident that every single artist on stage has so much passion for their project. Using the text of the renowned Gertude Stein, we watch an enthusiastic ensemble of thirteen young performers sing, dance, and play through Stein’s vision.
Once the ball gets rolling, director Michelle Sutherland knows how to keep the audience captivated and engaged. Sutherland is able to showcase her ensemble and highlight their numerous talents. With Diego Montoya serving as both costume and scenic designer, Montoya’s visual world is colorful iconic, and pleasing to the eye.
If you weren’t able to follow Gertrude Stein SAINTS!, you certainly left with a great appreciation for the artstis who made the work possible. If nothing else, SAINTS is a triumphant of a production.
