BWW Interview: Jeff Deglow of INTERRUPTING VANESSA at ChildsplayBWW Interview: Jeff Deglow of INTERRUPTING VANESSA at Childsplay

Adults experience a very different play than the children do. It is such a joy to be part of telling this story. (more...)

BWW Review: SEMINAR Proves BigNose Productions is an Exciting New Voice in OKC TheatreBWW Review: SEMINAR Proves BigNose Productions is an Exciting New Voice in OKC Theatre
by Ronn Burton - Feb 18, 2017

BigNose Productions presents their first work, Theresa Rebeck's biting comedy SEMINAR. Filled with scathing one-liners and backstabbing twists, SEMINAR examines gender politics, artistic merit, and modern urban sociology through a self-aware, comic lens. Ultimately, I am quite excited to see a new theatre company emerge with such a striking first impression. (more...)

by Jeanmarie Simpson - Jan 23, 2017

Now and then, but not often, a theatregoer experiences theatre that is THEATRE. Not theatre that tries to be film or television, but theatre that has the audacity to be theatrical. Theatre wherein the actor looks the witness in the eye and says, 'I know you know I'm an actor, and I know you're sitting there experiencing this with me. I know you see the lights and the seams in the muslin walls and the painted wood grain on the scenery. And I feel your heartbeat, and we're all breathing this air together.' (more...)
