IT SHOULDA BEEN YOU isn't smart and doesn't have a lot of artistic merit, but it's thoroughly entertaining and offers the kind of trivial comedy audiences need right now. The production runs through July 1 at the Robert B. Moss Theatre.BWW Review: A KINKY Revolution in Richmond May 31, 2017
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.BWW Reviews: Come to the Seductive and Stirring CABARET in Richmond June 9, 2014
Richmond Triangle Players is bringing its triumphant 21st season to a close with the reinvented and licentious 1990s revival of Kander and Ebb's CABARET, which was staged for Broadway by Sam Mendes (American Beauty) and Rob Marshall (Chicago) and starred Alan Cumming as the Emcee.BWW Reviews: Cadence Theatre's DETROIT Is Fueled By Talent May 7, 2014
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.BWW Reviews: OTHER DESERT CITIES - A Scorching Hot Cast April 26, 2014
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.BWW Reviews: Firehouse Theatre Project's STREETCAR, A Wild and Engrossing Ride April 22, 2014
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.BWW Reviews: TheatreLAB Delivers Powerful GRACE by Craig Wright April 2, 2014
As an entry into the Acts of Faith Festival, Richmond's newest company, TheatreLAB, offers high stakes drama with Craig Wright's GRACE. An exploration of faith in a deteriorating world, GRACE is not afraid to ask tough questions or to pry into human relationships at their most vulnerable states. With only one weekend remaining, treat yourself to one of the most compelling dramas of the season, penned by a Six Feet Under and Brothers and Sisters alumnus.BWW Reviews: WITTENBERG in Richmond April 2, 2014
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.
