Theatre Production of “Las Meninas” in the News

The Catonsville Times reviewed UMBC Theatre’s production of Lynn Nottage’s “Las Meninas.” The play tells the tales of glorious gossip at the 17th-century court of King Louis XIV. Predominantly the controversy surrounding the French king’s Spanish-born wife, Queen Marie-Therese, rumored affair with her African dwarf servant, Nabo Sensugali.

Elena Zlotescu’s sparse set design and decadent costume Design are praised. Sean McComas portrayal of King Louis XIV, and Keilyn Durrel Jones’ Nabo Sensugali are hailed as standouts in the student cast.

The article, “UMBC Theatre offers fun with scandals at court,” appeared November 17 in the Catonsville Times.

A review on broadwayworld.com, entitled “Lynn Nottage’s Powerful if Somewhat Incoherent Las Meninas Receives a Strong Staging at UMBC,” praises the strong production led by director Eve Muson.

“Las Meninas” runs through Sunday, November 21, at the UMBC Theatre. Tickets are $10, $5 for students and seniors. Call ext. 5-2476 or go to www.umbc.edu/theatre.
