There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.

“There is a land of the living and a land of the dead and the bridge is love, the only survival, the only meaning.”

The Rogue Theatre’s Bridge of San Luis Rey is magnificent.
Years from now people will still be talking about it.

—Chuck Graham, TucsonStage.com

Meier has a triumph here. McGrath and the company of actors do as well.
The book is wonderful; this adaptation makes it dance off the page and on to the stage.

—Kathleen Allen, Arizona Daily Star

On a scale of one to ten, this production is an 11.

—Pat McKnight, Audience Member

Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer-Prize-winning novel tells the story of
five people who die in the collapse of an Inca rope bridge in Peru.
A friar who witnesses the tragic accident investigates the lives of the victims,

2015 Arizona Daily Star Mac Awards

The Rogue Theatre received
eight nominations and one award in the Arizona Daily Star’s 2015 Mac Awards!
Read all about it here.

The Nominations

Best Play, Drama: Hamlet
“The Rogue Theatre’s sparse Hamlet was riveting and thrilling.”
Best Play, Drama:Waiting for Godot
“We sometimes think Waiting for Godot is a tragedy. Then a comedy. Then tragedy again.
Whatever you classify it, The Rogue Theatre’s production of the Samuel Beckett play teased us and thrilled us.”

Best Comedy: Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead
“...given all the wit and weight the Tom Stoppard play deserves.”
Best Actor: David Morden in Hamlet
“David Morden’s buffoonish Polonius...provided some much needed laughter.”
Best Actress: Patty Gallagher in The Merchant of Venice
“Patty Gallagher’s turn as Portia... was often transcendent.”
Best Actress: Kathryn Kellner Brown in Hamlet
“majestic and heartbreaking in her role of Gertrude...
The agony and sometimes-clueless side of Hamlet’s mother were palpable in her hands.”

Best Direction, Play: Cynthia Meier for Hamlet
“Cynthia Meier’s fast-moving Hamlet caressed the language and made the complex story clear.”
Best Direction, Play: Cynthia Meier for Waiting for Godot
“Meier also wowed us with her direction of The Rogue’s Waiting for Godot.”

The Winner

Best Actor: Matt Bowdren in Hamlet
“He was haunting and haunted, tender and consumed with revenge.
His Hamlet made us see the Shakespeare play with fresh eyes.”
