Metropolitan Ensemble "Kentucky Cycle Part 1" review by Robert Trussell
I’d waited a long time – much too long, really – for a Kansas
City theater company to stage Robert Schenkkan’s tragic historical
epic, “The Kentucky Cycle.” The wait is over, thanks to the
Metropolitan Ensemble Theatre, which is tackling the monumental work and
dishing it up to audiences in the intimate confines of the MET. The
results are impressive, even if the Sunday matinee looked a little rough
around the edges.
