BWW Reviews: Irony, Humor and Holiday Culture Inspire Next Act's HERESY Photos BWW Reviews: Irony, Humor and Holiday Culture Inspire Next Act's HERESY
(11/21/2014) - A hint of a seasonal theme inspires Next Act Theatre's Heresy while adding a political twist on on the holiday spirit. A.R. Gurney's near apocalyptic play places Mary and Joe searching for their rebel son Chris in America's jails, now under protection by Homeland Security. Pontius, a leader with a rather droll wife Phyllis, tries to befriend Mary and Joe in finding their son who was arrested without cause. While the couple waits for news of their son, a military recorder named Mark, that just happens to be the name of one of the four gospel writers in the Bible, rattles off biblical phrases referring to the nativity and condemnation of Christ with equal aplomb.

(11/19/2014) - Man and Sensibilities. Machines and Sciene. Milwaukee's Off the Wall Theatre presents an American premiere of an intellectual Frankenstein based on Mary Shelley's 1818 novel more than the horror monsters the novel's name frequently invokes. The company's Artistic Director Dale Gutzman imported an adaptation by Nick Dear that premiered at London's National Theatre and focuses on the meaning of creating the spark of human life overlaid with touches from John MIlton's "Paradise Lost." Themes that Shelly intertwined into her original novel, often considered to be one of the first examples of science fiction.

(11/14/2014) - Poetry. A show that inspires beyond one's capabilities of speech is described as poetic genius. Disney's Broadway hit musical The Lion King is nothing short of pure poetry. Frankly a loss for words is what this critic is suffering from. Julie Taymor's most renowned claim to fame is a show that has just recently become the highest grossing Broadway production of all time - and for good reason.
