If x = the 2001 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, y = the inspired casting and direction choices by Leslie Martinson, and z = a decision by Artistic Director Robert Kelley to revive at this particular time his company’s 2003 production of David Auburn’s Proof, the impressive total is more than the sum of the individual parts for the current TheatreWorks Silicon Valley offering. For a full review, click to my Talkin’ Broadway review at http://www.talkinbroadway.com/regional/sanjose/sj10.html.
The TheatreWorks Silicon Valley production of Proof continues through November 1, 2015 at the Mountain View Center for the Performing Arts, 500 Castro Street, Mountain View.
