The Language Archive

By Julia Cho

Directed by Chloe Bronzan

it’s a highly enjoyable play and beautifully performed, nicely accentuated by a good mix of music in a variety of languages...Cho toys with a lot of fanciful ideas here to tickle the intellect, but in the end what makes the play work is the way the cast embodies the emotional reality behind them. Sometimes words just aren’t enough.

Abominable, or The Misappropriation of Beverly Onion by Forces Beyond Her Control

By Katie May

Directed by Chloe Bronzan

Produced: 2016

"...precise and intimate acting style places a whirligig of characters before our eyes, always in super-sharp satirical focus. Director Chloe Bronzan makes them delicious and hypnotic to watch."

Emilie, La Marquise du Châtelet Defends Her Life Tonight

by Lauren Gunderson

Directed by Chloe Bronzan

Produced: 2012

"The performances are entertaining throughout. And the triumph is the company's--Symmetry, with just a few plays under its belt, all of different styles, is coming of age most precociously--like their heroine in 'Emilie.'"

Carnival Round the Central Figure

By Diana Amsterdam

Directed by Chloe Bronzan

Produced: 2013

"The performances are one of the main reasons to see Symmetry Theatre Company’s Carnival Round the Central Figure, which boasts an impressive assemblage of terrific local actors...[T]he wild theatricality and sometimes raucous humor of this three-ring circus raging beyond all reason against the dying of the light is what makes it so entertaining and makes it more than just a simple memento mori."

Show and Tell

by Anthony Clarvoe

Directed by Laura Hope

Produced: 2010

"Symmetry hopes to help address the lopsided under-casting of women in local theater (about 20 percent of Equity union jobs). "Show" is a good first step and an engrossing drama as well."
