★★★ "PigPen Theatre Co., a group of handsome, musically talented young men who met at the Carnegie Mellon School of Drama, is certainly riding a forceful wave with an ensemble-forged piece of theatrical storytelling known as "The Old Man and The Old Moon." Writers Theatre, the Glencoe-based resident company that is, in essence, presenting a somewhat revised version of a hipster-friendly show that already played commercially in New York last season, might be well advised to send a note to its subscribers suggesting anyone with teenage daughters or granddaughters order an extra ticket. As the story takes hold (you're better experiencing it without foreknowledge, but it involves a sweet, old man who takes care of the moon but misses his kind wife, and ends up on an adventure with various sea-faring fellows), you come to see that the PigPen boys actually are very fine storytellers. What the piece mostly needs now is a relentless focus on honesty. We will, for sure, be playing more with PigPen." —Chris Jones
