Elizabeth Carlin-Metz’s production of A Passage to India receives rave reviews from Chicago theater critics.
Excerpt from the Chicago Sun Times:
Vitalist Theatre, whose creative roots extend from Chicago to the Galesburg, Ill., campus of Knox College (where Elizabeth Carlin-Metz, its exceedingly gifted founder-director, is a professor of theater), sets up shop at the Theatre Building here about once a year. And invariably it unveils a work of great literature that has been adapted with fierce intelligence; a thrilling devotion to movement, music and design, and a unique feel for place and character….
….Even fans of David Lean’s extraordinary 1985 film version will not be disappointed. This production is a true “jewel in the crown.”
Excerpt from Chicagocritic.com:
Director Elizabeth Carlin-Metz specializes in mounting epic theatre projects.

Her latest work, A Passage to India, now playing at the Theatre Building Chicagoâ€™s West stage, may be her best directorial achievement to date. This lady knows how to tell a large scale story in a stunning theatrical manner.
