Cloudlands

South Coast Repertory
655 Town Center Drive Costa Mesa

Just as she struggles to find her own way in love, Monica accidentally makes a startling discovery about her mother, which throws her whole life into question. Looking for answers, she soon uncovers a labyrinth of secrets that involve her mother, her father and a stranger who connects them all. Stunningly beautiful songs fill this powerful drama that examines the many faces of love—from innocent to forbidden—by two brilliant artists, working together for the first time.

  Review Round-Up

Los Angeles Times - Recommended

"...The result is nothing short of a triumph for all concerned with this extraordinary new work."

F. Kathleen Foley


Variety - Not Recommended

"...But “Cloudlands” aspires to near-Greek tragic dimensions, a bad fit with librettist Octavio Solis’ superficial, illogical storytelling and helmer Amanda Dehnert’s terminally tame South Coast Rep premiere production."

Backstage - Somewhat Recommended

"...It’s a tall order, and they don’t entirely succeed."

Paul Hodgins


Stage and Cinema - Not Recommended

"...Cloudlands does not elevate the storyline. It sinks it. The whole piece feels like a travelogue; the characters comment on their feelings, endlessly describing their unpleasant emotional experiences, yammering on and on about what they feel without ever making us feel anything."

Samuel Bernstein


Stage Scene LA - Recommended

"...Still, with Gwon’s songs propelling the plotline alongside five marvelous performances and the kind of stunning design that South Coast Rep ticketholders have come to expect, Cloudlands is well worth checking out, particularly if like this reviewer you are an Adam Gwon fan. If only there were an Original Cast CD take home!"

LA Stage Times - Recommended

"...I was caught up in Cloudlands from beginning to end. The story in Octavio Solis’ book is compelling, and his lyrics generally maintain a delicate balance between lucidity and lyricism."

Don Shirley


TheatreTimes.org - Not Recommended

"...For a play with maps as a central metaphor, Cloudlands, a 95-minute musical by Octavio Solis (book and lyrics) and Adam Gwon (music and lyrics), feels lost."

OutWestArts - Not Recommended

"...Pop ballad scores; jukebox musicals: more than anything, I think the American musical theater needs a new musical language and Cloudlands, while struggling to find it, hasn’t quite arrived there yet."
