Bertolt Brecht's first full-length play is the raw, sprawling chronicle of a womanizing, binge-drinking young poet whose fame derives as much from his wanton lifestyle as from his art. Written in 1918, when Brecht was a 20-year-old university student, Baal explores the primal link between creation and destruction embodied in the title character, named for a pagan god. With the help of a first-rate cast, Keith Parham's expressionistic lighting, and Josh Schmidt's fine folk-rock settings of Brecht poems, TUTA Theatre artistic director Zeljko Djukic creates a vivid, dreamlike work of stage poetry. --Albert Williams
