The War Cycle is the epitome of how theater in the city can be a cradle for the rigorous exploration of ideas and the development of new works. Steven Leigh Morris, LA Weekly
Danika Sudik has worked with the Los Angeles Theatre Ensemble since 2007 on Tom Burmester's The War Cycle. Director of Survived, Nation of Two, and Gospel According to First Squad, she played "Ellen" in the 2010 production of Wounded.
CRITICS’ CHOICE - Los Angeles Times: "A prismatic glimpse into an ever-shifting conflict and culture, this “Gospel” is chapter and verse of one of the finest war plays in recent memory." CRITIC’S PICK - Backstage: "Burmester's writing and his staggeringly stark staging are mesmerizing. He has one of the finest and most committed ensemble casts performing on any Los Angeles stage this year. GO! - LA Weekly: "Electrifying! Yes, it's another war play, but the first act moves so swiftly and the themes are presented so seamlessly, you find yourself gasping rather than groaning." FEATURED - LA Stage Watch (Don Shirley): "The War Cycle is one of the most impressive multi-play bodies of work to emerge from LA’s 99-seat theaters."
