It's all part of Shirley Jackson's slyly menacing, next-to-abnormal world that she evokes in her 1962 novel "We Have Always Lived in the Castle," premiering as a musical at Yale Repertory Theater
. Adam Bock, Todd Almond and helmer Anne Kauffman have succeeded in creating a stage fable of anxiety and glee, and while their show still needs work to deepen and further musicalize Jackson's tale of small-town persecution and familial murder, even at this stage of development it's a spellbinding tale to see and hear.
This awareness of movement as part of total theater comes from the eight years she spent, during the late sixties and early seventies, as a performer and teacher of movement for actors at the Yale Repertory Theater
. De Lavallade was invited to Yale because she is, as her 1966 Dance Magazine Award citation read: a "total dancer," one whose silken technique is interwoven with dramatic sensibility.
