BWW Reviews: Theatreworks Examines Decay and Disillusionment in DETROIT Review BWW Reviews: Theatreworks Examines Decay and Disillusionment in DETROIT
by Christi Esterle - January 23, 2015

The audience sits on either side of a shared backyard flanked by two houses. At first glance structurally identical, closer examination revels distinct differences. One house has a clean patio set, new curtains, and a well-tended window box of flowers. The other shows obvious signs of neglect: peeling paint, dead grass, a rusty charcoal grill tucked away in a corner. (more...)


BWW Reviews: MISS SAIGON at Vintage Theatre Review BWW Reviews: MISS SAIGON at Vintage Theatre
by colin roybal - January 23, 2015

Vintage Theatre Productions has tackled one of the more difficult musicals of the last 30 years. Miss Saigon is a show filled with challenges for even the biggest, most equipped theatres. But the smaller-scale production that Vintage performs is a beast in other ways. (more...)

by Chris Arneson - January 14, 2015

BWW Reviews: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at The Stage Theatre Inspires the Christmas Spirit Review BWW Reviews: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at The Stage Theatre Inspires the Christmas Spirit
by colin roybal - December 20, 2014

The holiday season is in full swing, and holiday magic is all around. Especially at the Denver Center's production of A Christmas Carol. The classic tale by Charles Dickens has been told countless times, and every variation brings the same wonder and spirit of giving to life. As the lights dim and the hum of the pre-show crowd settles, the audience can't help but wonder what variation of the tale they will be treated to in this annual tradition at the DCPA. (more...)

by Christi Esterle - December 12, 2014

Take a trip back to the golden era when thrilling radio drama ruled the airwaves. It was a time of thrilling adventures, chilling suspense, and fast-pasted comic banter. A time when men were men, women were dames, and nobody complained if a baby was a cigarette mascot. (more...)


BWW Reviews: ROMEO AND JULIET with Fearless Theatre Review BWW Reviews: ROMEO AND JULIET with Fearless Theatre
by Chris Arneson - November 21, 2014

You still haven't taken your seat and it's almost showtime. The lobby is packed, everyone is standing. Suddenly a guy in a leather jacket and ponytail bursts through the crowd, laying down the familiar scene of fair Verona. Following him are two punks carrying weapons, and a fight breaks out. You follow them into the theater and take your seat. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the Water Review BWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the Water
by Christi Esterle - October 24, 2014

You'd think a play called Psycho Beach Party would be a little more, well....crazy. But Charles Busch's affectionate parody of 1960s beach movies seldom seems more unhinged than the cheerful teen romps it draws inspiration from. Oh, it's not all sun and fun in the sand, to be sure. There's a fair amount of sexual kink, a domineering mother who could give Margaret White a run for her money, and revelations of a tragic past, but it all feels so light. The poster for the Theatreworks production, featuring a knife-wielding beach bunny, promises a gruesome good time that the play never really delivers. (more...)
