The audience LOVES Terminus


…possibly one of the best (if not the best) and most inspiring works of theatre I’ve seen in a very long time.

See this play or live with regret!

It was a terrific show! Brilliant actors! Kudos!!

…had to see it again. Hope they extend it.

I couldn’t stop thinking about it all week, so went back for seconds this week.

Actor Tom Reed and actresses Isabelle Kralj and Megan Kaminsky put on an incredible show and displayed intense artistry on that stage! I witnessed great thespians in action! The show is a Must See!

I’ll never stop thinking about this play. It makes me never want to waste another minute of my life…ever.

My mind keeps going back to last night’s performance of TERMINUS… Strikingly vivid supernatural horror drama breathed into the darkness by Isabelle Kralj, Megan Kaminsky and Tom Reed. No sparkly vampires or special effects here. It’s all darkness, shadow and language. And it’s beautiful.

That was an amazing performance. You all rock!

We were immensely riveted this evening by Theatre Gigante’s ghoulishly fabulous production of TERMINUS. It’s a must see for sure. Isabelle and the other two in the cast are amazing, and Mark’s direction is superb.

Thanks for a great evening. So glad you brought this play to us. We spent almost two hours afterwards with our friend discussing it and it will linger always.

TERMINUS was a very mind massaging, totally awesome play!

Great reviews for TERMINUS

Theatre Gigante’s production of TERMINUS opened last weekend and earned great reviews from Paul Kosidowski (Milwaukee Magazine’s Culture Club) and Russ Bickerstaff (Shepherd Express).
Terminus is composed entirely of monologues—three characters stand and deliver, recounting individual dark nights of the soul that eventually come together in a unifying climax that’s both gruesome and exquisitely beautiful.
And like the dramas of old, they speak in verse—not exactly poetic couplets, but a kind of hip-hop inspired language of charged rhythm and frequent rhyme that’s musically charged and vividly descriptive.
It’s all told, not shown. But told by actors who capture the wonderful music in [Mark] O’Rowe’s visceral language.

The profoundly human drama of supernatural fantasy horror is rarely explored on the live stage. Mark O’Rowe’s Terminus is executed so brilliantly that it makes one wonder why. The stories of a serial murderer, a mother, a girl and her guardian demon resonate through three beautifully lyrical rotating monologues that dance elegantly across the imagination. Running through May 16, Theatre Gigante’s production smartly summons three intertwined stories to an intimate, emotionally vivid studio theater environment.
