Praise for Subject to Control
OUR AUSTIN CHRONICLE REVIEW:
"...we're immediately enthralled by Beeler's embodiment of the character. Innocent and curious, every motion, every line, every motivation deeply rooted – a true symbiosis of actor and character.
When Luciani's Conductor enters to begin the day's research, we are treated to a truly talented comedic duo. Luciani is excitable and charming but maintains his control of the situation, establishing for the audience where the power is. As the days and months of research go by, however, the play begins to experiment with those power dynamics; indeed, the play is as much about the transfer of power between characters as it is a hilarious exploration of the human condition under such trying circumstances.
As the Conduit exercises her free will and begins to experience just what it is to be a human being – mentally and, ahem, physically – we are treated to a skillfully sculpted naivete that leads to genuine, beautiful discovery. The energy put into creating these characters is palpable; each actor fully embraces moments of agency and urgency, and the comedy comes from an increasingly honest place. Yoho's direction serves the actors well, a keen third set of eyes to polish and hone what Luciani and Beeler so painstakingly craft..."
