THEATER REVIEW: “Proof” at Tacoma Little Theatre

"Proof" opened at Tacoma Little Theatre last week.

David Auburn's Proof is built on relationships: a damaged girl and her broken father; the sibling rivalry of two sisters on very different paths; the uncertainty of young love. Each tie between two characters helps illuminate another.

Nominally, the play is about brilliance and madness in mathematics, but even that is another of the many relationships that bind together a topic-mathematical discovery-that would ordinarily be a bit dry for theater.

It is the execution of these relationships that drives the performance at Tacoma Little Theatre.

[Tacoma Little Theatre, Proof, through June 26, 7:30 p.m. Friday-Saturday, 2 p.m. Sunday, $15-$24, 210 N. I St., Tacoma, 253.272.2281]
