It has taken more than two years to bring THE COLOR PURPLE to Virginia Repertory Theatre, and the ambitious final production of the 2013-2014 season is absolutely stunning and every bit worth the wait. PURPLE is a convergence of some of Richmond's finest performers and creative collaborators, and is as close to a Broadway performance as it gets.

Richmond Triangle Players closes its season with the Sam Mendes revival of Kander and Ebb's CABARET, which has returned to Broadway for a limited engagement at Studio 54. While it would be a real treat to see Alan Cumming, Michelle Williams and company, the Triangle Players' production stands well on its own.

Don't be hoodwinked by the welcome barbeque or neighborly communication. Brick by brick, these products of the American dream are crumbling to the ground in Cadence Theatre's production of Lisa D'Amour's Pulitzer-finalist DETROIT. Cadence's final production of the 2013 - 2014 season, this dark comedy is not afraid to prod at the verity of a deteriorating Suburbia, U.S.A.

A finalist for the Pulitzer Prize, Jon Robin Baitz's OTHER DESERT CITIES is a heavy-hitting and sharply written drama gallivanting about as a comedy for much of the first hour. While the laughs are many, Baitz's quick-witted script is thick with suspense, disloyalty and resentment. Virginia Repertory Theatre has hired some of the most accomplished performers and creative artists in Richmond to mount the Tony-nominated production.

When PATTI ISSUES opened off-Broadway in 2012, Ben Rimalower took to the Duplex stage to tell his own personal story-a story that's as fiercely emotional and heartrending as it is witty and entertaining. Nevertheless, it was his story to tell. With Carol Piersol and Richmond Triangle Players' production of the autobiographical off-Broadway success, acclaimed Richmond performer and director Billy Christopher Maupin dives into Rimalower's shoes, and it works, for the most part.

As an entry into the Acts of Faith Festival, Richmond's newest company, TheatreLAB, offers high stakes drama with Craig Wright's GRACE.

A joint achievement from Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Shakespeare, David Davalos's WITTENBERG, is the region's latest entry in the Acts of Faith festival. Davalos's script, with puffs of repartee, allusion and other witty wordplay, is heavy handed at times. Lucky for a general audience, he balances his bardish banter with modern language.

Given its short run on Broadway, it's only fair that one would approach SHREK: THE MUSICAL with a little bit of skepticism. But just a few short minutes into this first-rate feast of entertainment at Virginia Repertory Theatre's Children's Theatre at Willow Lawn, audiences will believe in a dancing, singing and wildly amusing SHREK. Together, David Lindsay-Abaire and Jeanine Tesori have written an endearing and light score suitable for the entire family.

Firehouse Theatre Project, touted as Off-Broadway on Broad Street, was transformed from a decommissioned fire station to an intimate theatre space in the early 1990s. And for Kristoffer Diaz's THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY, a 2010 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the space has changed once again to take on the persona of a small wrestling arena. A serviceable ring complete with ringside seats brings greater authenticity to the 'main event.' But outside the ring, Edwin Slipek's set design feels neglected.
