‘Death and the Maiden’ at Victory Gardens: Seeking peace and Schubert in web of horror
Review: The premise, like the title, is intriguing, but Ariel Dorfman’s play “Death and the Maiden” is a problematic work that isn’t helped by an uneven production at Victory Gardens Theatre. Yet Sandra Oh, perhaps best known as Dr. Cristina Yang on the television series “Grey’s Anatomy” and for the film “Sideways,” is magical as Paulina Salas, a woman who survived unjust imprisonment, torture and rape under the old regime of a South American republic – only to sense her former tormentor in the affable fellow suddenly before her in her living room. ★★★
