THEATER ROUNDUP: ETHER DOME/MUCH ADO/IT FELT EMPTY/LANGUAGE OF ANGELS

Joyce Kulhawik October 27, 2014 2

There’s a whole lotta theater goin’ on– here’s my take in short: ETHER DOME presented by The Huntington Theatre Company at BU is neither a gas, nor did it put me to sleep. Billed as a medical

RUSH to see TRACES–a vibrant gorgeous troupe of Canadian circus performers known as LES DOIGTS DE LA MAIN– or “Seven fingers of the hand.” It won’t take you long to get a handle on them. Hanging
