The Mud Formed A Finger, Pointed as reviewed by broadwayworld.com

The Mud Formed A Finger, Pointed

“The sounds are barely more than droning and breath, but that is all that is needed to paint the weird and wonderful world Watson draws the audience into. There is a slimy pinkish mass in a bucket of goo invoking creation myths of how human beings were formed but also toying with the aesthetic and appeal within the fetish of “Messy Play,”. It was totally transfixing to watch as a shapeless object rises from the muck and stands tall in her goddess-like glory like Botticelli’s Birth of Venus”. (Cindy Sibilsky, www.broadwayworld.com, 2018)
