Chicago Sun-Times theater critic Hedy Weiss shares her rave review of Objects in the Mirror on WTTW Chicago Tonight. "This is such a fascinating story. It really is about identity…and finding out what choice you’re going to make when you have some kind of freedom...The acting is so brilliant and the directing by Chuck Smith is fantastic."
The long-standing ritual of the Spanish bullfight ("la corrida de toros")forms part of the backdrop for Pamplona, in which we see Hemingway struggle to write a profile on a renowned bullfighter. The play's name derives from the northern Spanish city of Pamplona, which is considered the bullfighting capital of Spain.
