Watch: A Haunting
Pittsburgh in the Round: Readings are half-baked. That’s the point. Their final registry doesn’t exist yet; it’s being found. They are plays in flux waiting for feedback and the perfect sounds of rhythm. They are for actors to try things, for the writer to listen. They are for directors to plan and cut and encourage. But they are flawed and sometimes slow and confusing. You’re just hearing about something you should be able to visualize. The subtleties are lost because those choices have (for the most part) not been made.
