by BWW News Desk (Norfolk)

(3/12/2014) - In addition to hosting an Irish show, the Historic North Theatre has also gone "green" when it comes to conservation and recycling. The majority of the lights throughout the theatre have been refitted with compact fluorescent bulbs or other energy conserving bulbs. Metal, paper and plastic are also recycled after all of the shows. The stage crew has even been able to reuse some set pieces for different shows. On Monday, March 17, St. Patrick's Day, at 8:00 PM on the main stage, world famous Irish Fiddler Michael Burke will perform in concert. He has been called Ireland's most lyrical fiddler. At the forefront of traditional music for over 30 years, he is known for his highly individual style--vibrant, expressive, relaxed, and, at times, humorous. He is well known to international audiences for his work with superlative Irish groups, from the Bothy Band to Patrick Street and Celtic Fiddle Festival.

by Jeremy Bustin (Norfolk)

(3/4/2014) - Firehouse Theatre Project, touted as Off-Broadway on Broad Street, was transformed from a decommissioned fire station to an intimate theatre space in the early 1990s. And for Kristoffer Diaz's THE ELABORATE ENTRANCE OF CHAD DEITY, a 2010 finalist for the Pulitzer Prize for Drama, the space has changed once again to take on the persona of a small wrestling arena. A serviceable ring complete with ringside seats brings greater authenticity to the 'main event.' But outside the ring, Edwin Slipek's set design feels neglected.
