Luce film review

Luce (dir. Julius Onah): Film review

Based on a play by J.C. Lee (Warplay, Pookie Goes Grenading), this talky drama positively smolders from beginning to end

WARPLAY (Azuka): A playground at the gates of Troy

Not quite “Sing, oh muse, of the rage of Achilles.”

POOKIE GOES GRENADING (Azuka): The filling for your existential doughnut hole

Behind a thick veneer of such entertainingly hilarious absurdity, Azuka Theatre’s world premiere production of J.C. Lee’s POOKIE GOES GRENADING explores the self-serious commitment necessary to produce any works of artistic expression. Lee’s script is theatrical comedy at its best, fast-paced fun with seriously smart dialog and perceptive underpinnings.
