- A stellar member of
the beat pantheon, writer Diane di Prima cofounded
York Poets Theatre in the early '60s, and both of
scores" date from that period. Like is an elliptical
middle-class complacency, while Murder Cake leaps
full-blown dream logic marinated in classical literature.
language is delicious, and there are intimations of
mature power, but the poet has come a long way since
pieces, which seem distinctly of their time. Despite
strong performers, the production is disappointingly
amateurish and predictable even at its most surreal.
(Rosenstein) $10. Tues-Wed, 7pm. Through Wed/26.
