The weather has been bad since the beginning of time; it was horrible at the beginning of time. But the weather can get a whole lot worse when a wicked storm tears the lives of a Christian faith-based family asunder without warning. Baby Screams Miracle, a new work by Clara Barron, arrives to the Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company stage under the Direction of Artistic Director Howard Shalwitz and it crashes upon the boards much like the storm inside the play crashes into the five members of the family contained within its pages.
A storm is a great metaphor for all the chaos and turmoil in our lives. But what happens with the storm is not only a metaphor but a literal storm breaking down the door? Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company is now presenting Obie Award-Winning Clare Barron’s Baby Screams Miracle on the 2017 side of its current season. In a TheatreBloom exclusive sit-down interview, we’re speaking with yet another married couple housed within the company to explore the working dynamic of this mighty storm in this powerful work.
