BWW Review: CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION at Actors Theatre Of Louisville BWW Review: CIRCLE MIRROR TRANSFORMATION at Actors Theatre Of Louisville
by Taylor Clemons - February 01, 2017

I guarantee that you can ask any performer about theatre games, and get completely different answers regarding their enjoyment. It seems as if people either love them or hate them. In Circle Mirror Transformation, that ideology is center stage as five people come together in a community center theat... (more...)

by Keith Waits - January 05, 2017

Watching the current production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead from Kentucky Shakespeare was like seeing it for the first time, it's that fresh and smart. Tom Stoppard's post-modern masterpiece is absurdist and existential; catnip for academics in search of thesis projects concerning mid-T... (more...)

by Keith Waits - December 13, 2016

If there is a seamy underbelly to Christmas, it is surely the retail hell that is crucial to the profound commercialization of the holiday. And the most ignominious part of that experience must certainly be the rank and file, temporary, seasonal hires in the department stores that rely on the windfa... (more...)

BWW Review: KING LEAR at University Of Louisville - Budding Among The Ruins BWW Review: KING LEAR at University Of Louisville - Budding Among The Ruins
by Keith Waits - November 14, 2016

As a character, King Lear is the great aging lion, one of what Charlton Heston called the 'man killers' of Shakespeare, and a play that examines the hubris and arrogance in power held too long.

BWW Review: KIN at Eve Theatre Company BWW Review: KIN at Eve Theatre Company
by Keith Waits - November 08, 2016

Eve Theater Company opens its fifth season with Bathsheba Doran's play Kin. Year five always seems to be a milepost: a time for a company to take stock of itself and others. So I would note that this production seems to represent an important moment of maturity and ambition for Eve. It reaches for a... (more...)
