‘A Wrinkle in Time’ at Theatrical Outfit

2012 April 23

Emma Jackson and Andrew Crigler

Many a child’s favorite book, “A Wrinkle in time,” comes to life in John Glore’s adaptation now playing at Theatrical Outfit.

Reminiscent of Rod Serling’s “The Twilight Zone,” takes three youngsters–Meg (Emma Jackson), her little brother, Charles Wallace (Andrew Crigler) and her new friend Calvin (Lowrey Brown) on a trip to rescue the siblings father who is on another planet.

As usual, Kate Donadio, who plays the siblings’ mother and Aunt Beast, is stupendous, but what was really surprising, is that every actor in the cast was really good.

Kudos to Anna Michalle Tucker for outstanding  creative costumes, especially her Aunt Beast, who looks like a mix between an exceedingly tall ET, with giraffe-like legs and an ostrich head.

Novel by Madeleine L’Engle, stage adaption by John Glore, directed by Justin Anderson, “A Wrinkle in Time” runs through May 6 at Theatrical Outfit.

Cast includes Mark Cabus as the father and Marianne Fraulo as Mrs. Whatsit.
