BWW Reviews:  Enjoy the Spectacular A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE Review BWW Reviews: Enjoy the Spectacular A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Michael Mulhern - September 05, 2014

Two words immediately came to mind as I witnessed the magnificence of this production - natural and effortless. Vintage Theatre revives their award winning rendition of Tennessee Williams' A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE playing now through September 7th. Set against the steamy backdrop of New Orleans' gritty French Quarter, Tennessee Williams' 1947 Pulitzer Prize-winning drama tells the story of Blanche Dubois, a faded Southern belle driven to madness by her animalistic brother-in-law, Stanley Kowalski. Taking refuge from her crumbling past, the fragile yet determined Blanche arrives unexpectedly at her married sister Stella's doorstep, hoping for a better life and restoration of her senses.

BWW Reviews: Black Box Brings THE BUTLER DID IT! Home to Colorado Springs Review BWW Reviews: Black Box Brings THE BUTLER DID IT! Home to Colorado Springs
by Christi Esterle - June 09, 2014

The history of 'the butler did it' as a mystery plot device is filled with old-fashioned classism. To proponents of the trope, it was a great twist; who would suspect the servant, a person who ideally is supposed to be invisible? Others, such as S.S. Van Dine, considered it too easy a solution-because of course the lower tiers of the social order would be the logical place for such a culprit. In any case, the notion was already a hoary old cliche by the 1930s, when Todd Wallinger's The Butler Did It! is set-so much so that it's practically the first thing brought up between butler Jenkins and maid Sarah when discussing the popular mystery writer about to descend upon their household.
