Review On Faith Healer

Registered Critic


The Odyssey Theatre Ensemble is celebrating its 50th Anniversary, which is a remarkable milestone for a theatre. It's even more remarkable in Los Angeles, where theatre companies spring up like weeds and often die just as quickly. Most remarkable, though, is that the Odyssey has been run for its entire existence by Artistic Director Ron Sossi, who founded it in 1969. And he's not just a figurehead, as proved by his fine direction of Brian Friel's "Faith Healer."
