Theater Review: Pioneer Theatre Co.'s THE LIFESPAN OF A FACT

Understanding the distinction between what happened, and what's true
The progressive theologian Marcus Borg, when considering Biblical literalism, once said, “I don’t know if it happened this way or not, but I know this story is true.” He was trying to get a fundamental distinction between what factual events actually transpired, and what we can learn from a story, factually inaccurate though the story may be, that speaks to our hearts.

Theater review: "A Wall Apart"

World-premiere musical emphasizes the struggles of human separation
There's something strangely fitting about the space in which <em>A Wall Apart</em> is making its world-premiere, and not just because it places the audience on two sides of the performance space's physical divide.
