Edge Boston: Michael Yates Crowley & Michael Rau Examine Pain (With a Little Help from Ludwig Van Beethoven & Ayn Rand) (October 19, 2015)
How does one deal with pain? That is what Michael Yates Crowley & Michael Rau look at in an engaging theater piece at Oberon this week. EDGE spoke to the writing/directing/performing duo about pain, Beethoven & Ayn Rand.
Dizzying, humorous, and sincere, “Song of A Convalescent Ayn Rand Giving Thanks to the Godhead (In the Lydian Mode)” which runs Oct. 15-Oct. 23 at the Oberon, deftly combines Ayn Rand, Beethoven, migraines, and a multitude of other elements.
The mastery of this work at every level is subtle but absolute.
If you're open to a novel approach to an unusual subject, you might well find yourself amused, bemused, and provoked to thought.

WBUR: ‘Song Of A Convalescent Ayn Rand’ Is A Ball Of Fun, But It May Just Unravel (October 16, 2015)
What does the excruciating pain of the migraine have to do with Ayn Rand’s stripe of egoism, which is to say, the elevation of self and one’s own happiness above the needs of others?
Courtney Love, the onetime front woman of the grunge-rock group Hole, widow of Kurt Cobain and she of the often tattered image, is still pushing boundaries. This time though, they’re all her own.
Courtney Love is captivating. Even in her rather small role in "Kansas City Choirboy," there is not a moment that you are not compelled to watch her.
WBUR The ARTery: Courtney Love In ‘Kansas City Choir Boy': A Rock Opera Romance, Of Sorts (October 6, 2015)
Love stayed within bounds and rather wrenchingly portrayed the late girlfriend of the unnamed singer-musician played by the younger Almond.
