Default Review of "Bacchae" in LA Times

“Spellbinding”—I’ll take it. Thanks, LA Times:

“. . . .it’s by far the most theatrically assured rendition of the play I’ve encountered. The fluid translation by Aaron Poochigian is as mercurial as the staging.”

http://www.latimes.com/entertainment...909-story.html

Thanks to the Sphere for helping me revise the translation!

Congrats Aaron. I wish I were in LA to see your words on stage.

From what I read, it is an admirable translation.

Congratulations, Aaron! Was the translation a commission?

Thank you, all, gentlemen. I will be down in LA to see the show again this weekend.

Max, yes, the translation was a commission. I hope there are many more such to come.

Best,

Aaron
