ON TRENTON STAGE: Obie Award winner Heidi Schreck, left, and Polly Lee, seen at McCarter Theatre in “Candida,” are currently co-starring in the world premiere of “Instructions for Breathing” by Caridad Svich at Trenton’s Passage Theatre, continuing through May 10. A drama about loss and faith, the play deals with the sudden and tragic loss of a child by an act of casual neglect, and the attempts at healing by the family and community. Directed by Daniella Topol, the cast also includes Bryan Close, Frank Harts, Kate Hopkins, and Gerardo Rodriguez.

A Child’s Disappearance Triggers Shock, Pain, Finally Healing, in World Premiere of “Instructions for Breathing” at Mill Hill

Donald Gilpin

A suburban home, an office, and various other locales in the life of Jon and Sara are only the literal settings of Instructions for Breathing, a poetic, poignant world premiere drama by Caridad Svich, currently at Mill Hill Playhouse in Trenton. More importantly, this play is set in a dream world — a world of the mind’s creation, beautifully evoked through a child’s offstage voice, a suggestively surrealistic set, and a room “overlooking the ocean” on stage left — a place for meditation, spiritual relief and healing.

Princeton Pro Musica Closes Season With Monumental Bach Passion

Nancy Plum

Princeton Pro Musica celebrated the close of its 30th anniversary season in grand style on Sunday afternoon as Music Director Frances Fowler Slade led the chorus and accompanying orchestra in a brisk and clean performance of J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion. This is the type of music Pro Musica does best, and Sunday afternoon’s concert in Richardson Auditorium demonstrated the finer performance points of this well-honed choral ensemble.
