    The theater was freezing!
    Someone kept opening the side door and going in and out – carrying programs – throughout the play.
    We didn’t find it captivating or innovative.

  2. We’ve seen seven plays in this year’s ArtsEmerson series: three of them truly outstanding, three very interesting, and one terrible play–Neva. Skilled acting and some well-written lines, but the constant undercutting and trivializing of thought and feeling left nothing to care about and negated any meaningful thinking about art vs. history. The tiny stage within a stage on which the action took place suggested just how much the pay reduced a potentially rich subject to almost nothing. Turning the light on the audience at the end was an annoying cliche.

    A good play could have been written about these characters at this moment in history. Neva wasn’t it.
