Arts: Theater: All That I Will Ever Be

All That I Will Ever Be.
Director Alan Ball. At the New York Theater Workshop.

By Alexandra Sourbis

‘All That I Will Ever Be’, directed by Alan Ball, the same man who created the Emmy Award-winning series *Six Feet Under* and directed *American Beauty*, will be in theaters until March 11, 2007. It’s the story of an immigrant from the Middle East who has trouble identifying himself to others and loses the man that he loves upon discovering that his deceitful ways may have cost him his happiness. This is a show about being true to yourself and those you care about. Be sure not to miss it because it’ll have you sitting at the edge of your seat anticipating the main character’s next move. Although slightly predictable at times, the character development is so in-depth that viewers will have no choice but to leave the theater deep in thought and conversation. This play deals with the racial and gender issues of today, in a post 9/11 world where people need to constantly be reminded that words can sometimes be more harmful than violence.
