    BERLIN REVIEW: Kirsten Sheridan's 'Dollhouse' a Fun and Messy Improv Delight That Places Young Hooligans In an Unlikely Setting

    "Dollhouse" contains a deceptively simple premise that benefits greatly from its free-form style. Kirsten Sheriden, working on a smaller and more experimental scale than her previous efforts "August Rush" and "Disco Pigs," follows an enthusiastic gang of young hooligans...
