'Collected Stories'( May 1, 2013 )
Success in the business, academic and creative worlds comes more easily to those lucky enough to have a powerful, caring mentor. But what happens when the student outperforms the professor? One of the more astute observations in "Collected Stories," the carefully plotted, wise, literate and insightful two-character drama by Donald Margulies, is that such a transition is inevitable. The only question is how all parties will handle it. I suspect that observation is also behind the intensity of this American Blues Theater production, directed by the mother-and-daughter team of Mary Ann and Jessica Thebus and starring Carmen Roman and Gwendolyn Whiteside.
Through May 19 at the Victory Gardens Biograph Theater, 2433 N. Lincoln Ave.; $10-$49 at 773-871-3000 or americanbluestheater.com
