    Synopsis: 

    Target Margin Theater revives "Reread Another" — the critically-acclaimed, fun, fast-moving new work performed only twice before. What’s in it? Love and loss and holiday gifts; the remembrance of music past; we climb mountains; Clare plays Erik Satie on the piano; the leaves do fall. "Reread Another" is the capstone to Target Margin’s season of work by Gertrude Stein.

    Revisiting Gertrude Stein’s Writings in ‘Reread Another’

    Ben Brantley

    September 28, 2015: Words seem to be plucked from the air, with great care and wonder, in “Reread Another,” a charming Target Margin Theater production based on the writings of Gertrude Stein. They are simple words, said with savor and, occasionally, apprehension. There’s probably not one you haven’t heard before. If you listen with half an ear, they sound, in combination, like the ordinary sentences you overhear every day. Listen more carefully, though, as these words are assembled into the exacting forms of declensions and syllogisms, or quaint questions and answers that suggest foreign language phrase books for travelers. Why, it’s all gobbledygook. Except that something kind of wonderful has happened. These very pedestrian words seem to have sprouted wings, and resonate with surprising novelty. No wonder that the three people speaking them seem so delighted and perplexed. It’s as if they’d been born again as speakers of English.
