S.H.: “Oh man, now I’m thinking of yet another solo show, also in Brooklyn: Annie Dorsen’s Prometheus Firebringer, which is coming to Theatre for a New Audience. It’s billed as a “hybrid performance-lecture” in which Dorsen uses AI to try to generate possible versions of the two plays that are missing from Aeschylus’s 2,500-year-old Prometheia trilogy. I’ve seen a couple of shows at TFANA, like The Art of Laughter and Peter Brook and Marie-Hélène Estienne’s Why?, that feel like they’re taking a step back to ask, “What is theater?” I like that they have a bit of a niche for that.”
