DC Metro Theater Arts Review: ‘Omnium Gatherum’

In keeping with performing plays from five different decades in celebration of their 50th Anniversary, Silver Spring reached back to right after Sept. 11, 2001, to do Omnium Gatherum by Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros and Theresa Rebeck. The play produced by Lennie Magida and directed by Bill Hurlbut deals with the aftermath of that horrible day.

Theatre Bloom Review - "Omnium Gatherum"

Just another boring upscale dinner party-alcohol flowing freely, chatter, strong opinions, heated debates, and an almost Stepford hostess fluttering around her guests. Right? Well, if you consider helicopter noises, explosions, and fiery lighting boring and normal then absolutely! You will want to make your way to Silver Spring Stage right now to see their latest production led by Director Bill Hurlbut, Omnium Gatherum by Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros and Theresa Rebeck. It is a production that will make you laugh one moment, think about where your opinions on 9/11 lay the next, and suddenly have you searching for tissues to wipe away tears.

MD Theatre Guide Review: ‘Omnium Gatherum’

In Omnium Gatherum, the dinner party takes a bunch of twists and turns at the Silver Spring Stage. It slowly dawns on the audience that something is terribly off. Susie, deftly played by Wendy Baird, is the hostess who is giving the dinner party. She describes each course in lush, sensual terms, only to serve empty plates, wineglasses and bowls. That, coupled with the red flare of menacing light coming from a hallway leading to the kitchen and bathroom, clues one in that this is no ordinary dinner party.
