- Michael Lazan, Backstage
"A Dip in Delicious Rivers Proves to Be Merry and Thought-Provoking"
- Andy Propst, American
"Math exemplifies the mysteries of Delicious Rivers, rather than
solving them and it makes for a funny, touching evening."
- Julia Furay, CurtainUp
DELICIOUS RIVERS, written and composed by Ellen Maddow was created by
the same OBIE award winning team that brought you PAINTED SNAKE IN A PAINTED
CHAIR: direction - Paul Zimet, Set design - Nic Ularu, Lighting - Carol
Mullins, costumes - Kiki Smith, choreography - Karinne Keithley. In addition
there will be animations by Anna Kiraly. The show was developed in collaboration
with the mathematician Marjorie Senechal . Set in a New York city post
office, this funny and moving music-theatre work explores the pleasure
of deductive reasoning; the solution of a mystery; the link between order
and the unexpected; and the delight in discovery of pattern and meaning.
