Best of 2011: #6 - Invasion!

The Play Company's INVASION! started off with an unforgettable bang - the kind of thing you wish would happen more often in the theater and it freaked the audience out.  At the performance I attended, I thought a known theater journalist was actually going to strike what turned out to be one of the actors.  And the rest of the play lived up to the bravura beginning.  The play was so tuned in to  contemporary America that it is hard to believe it was written by the Swedish playwright, Jonas Hassen Khemiria. Since I don't speak or read Swedish, special acknowledgement must go to Rachel Willson-Broyles for what must be a masterful translation. Long live Abul Kasem!
