ANIMAL FARM (Luna): From pig to (wo)man, and from (wo)man to pig

Impressive theatricality in an imperfect production of Orwell’s allegory of the Russian Revolution and Stalin’s real-life dystopia.

RASHOMON (Luna): Kurosawa on the stage

Luna’s adaptation of one of the finest films ever made doesn’t dare to change enough to be much more than a translation of Kurosawa’s movie.

CLOSER (Luna): The sex is neither sensual nor dirty, it’s tactical

Campbell’s production allows us to see the raw humanity in these people—or, in many cases, the lack thereof.

QUILLS (Luna): Sadism never felt so good

This brilliantly twisted, fictionalized look at de Sade’s time in the asylum of Charenton, is now getting a delightfully dark treatment on the new Luna Theater stage.

BRAINPEOPLE (Luna): A Haunting Invitation to Dinner

Concluding its 2013-14 themed season “Once upon a Time,” Luna Theater Company’s 80-minute Philadelphia premiere of BRAINPEOPLE, told in real time, is mysterious, disturbing, and challenging; but then director Gregory Scott Campbell was never one to avoid a challenge

A CLOCKWORK ORANGE (Luna): Commedia dell’arte meets post-modern morality play

Luna Theater Company’s interpretation of Anthony Burgess’s 1962 novel is a unique marriage of the British author’s futuristic stylizations with disturbing a cappella songs with the historic conventions of masking and stock movement inspired by Italian commedia dell’arte. It’s a perfect match to tell the cutting-edge morality tale of teen ultra-violence and reform.
