The Truth: A Tragedy

Actor-singer Cynthia Hopkins bewitches us with a seemingly simple brew of her family’s poignant eccentricities in her newest descent into self-obsession, a strange and hugely moving music-and-monologue tribute to her dad. Despite the avant-garde trappings, The Truth hews to documentary lines, and this narrowing focus actually increases our unease, as Hopkins fetishizes her family’s pain. The piece is funny and odd and full of musical delights, but it’s still a tragedy.—Helen Shaw
