Review:

In his language-drunk play LEMUEL, Lonnie Carter has drawn on everything from the spiraling patter of modernist writers Gertrude Stein and James Joyce, to the embroidered exhortations of Jesse Jackson, to the infectious rhythms of rap, hip-hop and funk.... LEMUEL is dazzling chamber theater. --Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times

The verbal and narrative gyrations of a Lonnie Carter play are no more daunting than whipping through a maelstrom on water skis.... GULLIVER, Mr Carter's latest explosion, takes the hero of Jonathan Swift's satire on a tour that makes American politics seem even more lunatic than it is. --D J R Bruckner, The New York Times

Lonnie Carter's GULLIVER TRILOGY screams and laughs like the irreverent love-child of Jonathan Swift, Joan of Arc and George Clinton. The wild maze of Carter's satiric language propels you on a wondrous journey into the confusion of dark hatreds and heavenly aspirations swirling in America's heart. As one who gleefully follows Mr Carter's travels my only advice is, enjoy the trip! --Neel Keller, Artistic Associate, La Jolla Playhouse

Book Description Broadway Play Publishing, United States, 1997. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. "Lonnie Carter's plays display, to my mind, two of the greatest gifts any playwright can offer: that of arousing uncontrollable laughter and that of sounding, and looking completely original. .a Carter play.will always be a play no one else on earth could possibly have conceived or written, and when it does strike home, it strikes unforgettably, with great comic power and sometimes with even a greater ferocity." Michael Feingold, The Village Voice "In his language-drunk play LEMUEL, Lonnie Carter has drawn on everything from the spiraling patter of modernist writers Gertrude Stein and James Joyce, to the embroidered exhortations of Jesse Jackson, to the infectious rhythms of rap, hip-hop and funk. LEMUEL is dazzling chamber theater." Hedy Weiss, Chicago Sun-Times "If one man's story can speak for his time, then Lonnie Carter's LEMUEL sings it in jumping jive talk, ragged rhythms, choral chanting, hip-hop tongue twisters and the rolling thunder of a civil rights sermon." Lawrence Bommer, Chicago Reader "The verbal and narrative gyrations of a Lonnie Carter play are no more daunting than whipping through a maelstrom on water skis. GULLIVER, Mr Carter's latest explosion, takes the hero of Jonathan Swift's satire on a tour that makes American politics seem even more lunatic than it is." D J R Bruckner, The New York Times "GULLIVER shows Carter at his most brilliant.a SKIN OF OUR TEETH for the '90s." Malcolm Johnson, The Hartford Courant "Lonnie Carter's GULLIVER TRILOGY screams and laughs like the irreverent love-child of Jonathan Swift, Joan of Arc and George Clinton. The wild maze of Carter's satiric language propels you on a wondrous journey into the confusion of dark hatreds and heavenly aspirations swirling in America's heart. As one who gleefully follows Mr Carter's travels my only advice is, enjoy the trip!" Neel Keller, Artistic Associate, La Jolla Playhouse "From THE SOVERIGN STATE OF BOOGEDY BOOGEDY through the GULLIVER Quartet and BABY GLO, I love to savor these plays. Lonnie Carter is the cook and the feast is ours. Our African American cornucopia spilleth out with ripe produce; our cup of lush-life language runneth over. All Hail to the Chef!" Woodie King Jr, Producer, The New Federal Theater. Seller Inventory # AAV9780881451344
