BWW Review: LYSISTRATA at Lakeside Community Theatre BWW Review: LYSISTRATA at Lakeside Community Theatre
by Christina Hoth on April 25, 2017 in Dallas

Currently on stage at Lakeside is the Greek comedy: 'Lysistrata'.  Though written by Aristophanes eons ago, this play has many shockingly contemporary, relevant themes of women rising up to have their voices heard, while men consistently fight to prove who boasts the larger... ego.  As an audience member, Director Dale Moon's forward in the playbill gives solid insight into the culture of 411 BC:  'Ancient Athens was considered to be a 'phallocracy' because of the everyday emphasis on the penis.  It was a symbol of male power, of military strength, and, most importantly, fertility, both human and agricultural.'  Lysistrata is a Grecian matriarch, although such a thing would have been largely frowned upon in her day, whose simple aspiration is to end the Peloponnesian War through drastic measures.  She proposes that the women of her nation withhold sexual interaction with their men as a means to protest their continued battles.  In turn, she hopes that the men of the nation will opt for peace in a desperate attempt to relieve their own, intimate tensions.

BWW Review: THE LITTLE MERMAID at Casa Manana BWW Review: THE LITTLE MERMAID at Casa Manana
by Kyle Christopher West on April 24, 2017 in Dallas

Disney's THE LITTLE MERMAID debuted in movie theatres way back in 1989, but nearly twenty years of children singing "Kiss The Girl," "Part of your World," and "Pour Unfortunate Souls" led Disney to produce the celebrated story on a Broadway stage in 2009. And although the show lasted less than two years in New York, it is quickly becoming a staple among high schools, regional and youth theatres. Casa Manana's current production (using the edited "Junior" version of the script) is a shining example of what the show is written to inspire: fun and freedom! (more...)
