Potomac Theatre Project

The Potomac Theatre Project (Cheryl Faraone, Jim Petosa, and Richard Romagnoli, directors) returns to New York City after a 20-year hiatus in Washington DC with a clean, sharp production of Anthony Minghella's "The Politics of Passions" and Howard Barker's "No End Of Blame," both plays running in rep. The members of PTP's company, most of whom
hail from Middlebury College's theatre program (PTP got its start at Middlebury College in Vermont, and the college is a continuing financial contributor), have excellent stage presence, right down to the practiced ease of their British and Hungarian accents. Stage and lighting design were simple and spare, using common objects and defined lighting to set place and time. "No End Of Blame" added rear projections of the cartoons of Bela Veracek, the play's protagonist, and were integrated neatly into the flow of the play's action. Special mention should be made of Alex Draper's performance as Bela Veracek, which he delivered with an affecting combination of pug.
