Guthrie Theater's "Dollhouse": two weekends left

The fun never ends: the Guthrie's "Dollhouse"
The fun never ends: the Guthrie's "Dollhouse"
Michal Daniel

Now that the show is a few weeks in my rear-view mirror, what settles into memory are the brand-specific set, Sarah Agnew's combination of furtiveness and flippancy, and the sense of a marriage in which both parties are set on the same goal: avoiding reality, with all the Herculean effort entailed. 

In an early scene, husband and wife sit down and talk gifts and currency. It's as squishy an exchange as they come, and presages the gnarled mess that eventually follows. I can't decide whether Dollhouse is the best update of Ibsen, but I can attest to the way in which many aspects of it have lodged in my memory.
