    Blast From the Past - DCTC's adaptation of John Brown's Body stands tall.

    John Brown's Body isn't exactly a play; it doesn't have one absorbing plot line. Instead, it's an adaptation of Stephen Vincent Bent's famous 1928 epic poem about the Civil War, and, like all epics, it's a kind of episodic tapestry. There's chanting...
