News & Reviews New Music, Part II: Better Days

Reviews:

A Masterpiece, Southern-style
Classical Voice of North Carolina

 How does one describe a Southern masterpiece? Amazing, stunning, profound…; even the strongest superlatives seem insufficient when speaking of Triad Stage's latest production, Reynolds Price's New Music. You haven't seen anything remotely like New Music anywhere this season, and you won't unless you get yourself to Greensboro's Triad Stage.New Music breaks ground, celebrates a master of Southern literature and, perhaps even more important in the long run, redefines modern regional theatre.
