On Stage/
Bad World: A New Musical

Inspired by a true story, Bad World follows the coming-of-age journey of Rose, an ambitious young woman who is sexually assaulted in Paris after completing her research project. Upon her return to the United States, she must face how her trauma affects how she lives her life, as her recovery experience becomes interwoven with those of three other survivors of sexual assault.

Andrews has done a wonderful job of keeping the story just out of balance enough that you feel yourself scooting closer to the action to make sure you’re not missing anything.
While the roles of Rothko and Ken are scripted as being two men, the director (Sarah Andrews) chose to cast two women (with the author's permission). I have seen the play performed the traditional way with two men, but the stakes in this performance were raised in a way I hadn't seen. This was two women talking about only male artists and trying to make it in that world where they were not represented. A struggle that landed with me as a female writer, feeling the stress of "making it" in this difficult profession but also the added pressure of being female when most of the great authors that I am taught about are male...
Andrews has a masterpiece on her hands in this production and it should not be missed! The movements in the semi-circular space are beautiful to behold... McCarthy as Mark is extraordinary! ...And Rose is equally as riveting as the assistant, matching her mentor thought for thought. She's especially powerful in her dance moments. Both actors mesmerizing!
And the best for last, Andrews, who must combine all these elements into a worthy stew for digestion and she does it masterfully! She and Rose have created a young company, Crave, and they are certainly on firm footing with this outing. It is original in its concept and they prove they can handle the technical and acting aspects to the nth degree as well.
