Power

The Metropolitan Playhouse has staged the first New York revival of POWER, one of the Federal Theater Project's "Living Newspapers" which asked in 1937 whether electrical power was a private commodity or a public good.

 

The original production...used 50 actors. Mark Harborth's production, which uses nine actors to play 150 roles, is clever and inventive.

 

The Metropolitan Playhouse production directed by Mark Harborth offers an energized cast in an exciting evening that reopens the debate on the private versus public good question, a question that has becom relevant once again in our own tims of economic hardships.
