Shivelight at Silk Moth
Thank you, George Durfee, for including our pre-show music in your “introspective review” of Wonder of Our Stage at the beautiful Silk Moth Stage on Saturday. The play, written by Monica Cross and directed by Aili Huber, was indeed “entertaining and intelligent,” and we couldn’t have imagined a lovelier setting.
As Durfee warmly describes, “[Clymer & Kurtz] heightened the already palpable feeling of togetherness with musical tunes, both covered and original. The simple yet powerful folkloric quality of their music instilled the impression that our evening was intended as an experiential event, and not simply another night at the theatre. The mood was set, and as the shivelight broke through the leaves of the many trees surrounding the stage, I could feel myself become overwhelmed with the sheer beauty of Silk Moth. We were somehow in another world, and consequently, another way of existing. Tears, as natural as the rays of the sun or the inviting notes of the pre-show songs, slowly descended down my cheeks, and even before the play proper had started, we had somehow been transformed.”
