Washington Life: The Woman in Black
The two actors — Matthew Keenan and Robert Leembruggen — who perform all the roles in the play within a play effectively and smoothly make the transitions believable. The solicitor sees a flash of the “Woman in Black” at the funeral and at other places as his work progresses. Colin Smith and Mark A. Rhea, the directors, deftly pace and control the action through Michael Innocenti’s inspired light design and Tony Angelini’s manipulation of the important sound design that dominates the action with several events occurring only through off-stage sound effects.
