by Teresa Rodrick (Boise)

(2/19/2014) - From the opening speech we learn that there is going to be an intermission for this play, which is a little unusual for a Boise Contemporary Theater production. But we find out that it is so what has happened has a chance to sink in and gives us, the audience, a chance to talk out what might be happening. We cannot begin to guess at what was about to happen or how it was going to affect us.

by Teresa Rodrick (Boise)

(2/18/2014) - Daisy's Madhouse Theatre has done it again. They teamed up with Boise Little Theatre to raise funds for the Idaho Food Bank. Winter is a tough time for the food bank and they get hit hard. One year, in 2009, Amy Nell Smith had the feeling that community theatre is great, but theatre for community could be greater! From that thought and some research, WILL ACT 4 FOOD was born.

(2/3/2014) - Knock 'Em Dead Dinner Theatre (KED) has a great production of ACCOMPLICE by Rupert Holmes and directed by Becky Kimsey. The script was wonderful! I would have to say that the script was the best thing about this show. At intermission, you thought one or two options. By 10 minutes into the second act however, you were happy to be taken along for the ride. Since I was in the audience, that's all you'll get out of me on the plot

(1/22/2014) - Stage Coach Theatre has produced another show that's sure to entertain their audiences. PARLOR GAMES by James C. Wall is a wonderful farce. I saw this show during dress rehearsal. It was the only chance I had due to conflicts. Comedies, especially farces are some of the hardest shows to produce. Stage Coach Theatre with the help of director Ted Pendelton does a good job.
