BWW Reviews: Uneven DIAL M FOR MURDER Fails to Thrill at OSTCBWW Reviews: Uneven DIAL M FOR MURDER Fails to Thrill at OSTC
by Robert Barossi - Nov 3, 2014

To start a review with 'it was a dark and stormy night' would probably be as unoriginal as that infamous line itself. On the other hand, in this case, it fits. It was in fact a dark, windswept, rain soaked, stormy night in Warwick when a sizable crowd attended the performance of Ocean State Theatre Company's (OSTC) production of Dial M for Murder. The atmosphere outside the theater was ripe for mystery, suspense and intrigue. Unfortunately, the uneven and mostly average production didn't really live up to the mood set by Mother Nature.

BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spit-Polishes THE HEIRESSBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Spit-Polishes THE HEIRESS
by Joseph Baker - Oct 24, 2014

THE HEIRESS, Ruth and Augustus Goetz's 1947 adaptation of Henry James' WASHINGTON SQUARE and currently occupying the Lohrey Stage at Theatre Memphis, has had a long and steady run on stages throughout the world - and why not? Tightly corseted, polite to a fault, and observing proprieties, this intelligently written script captures the essence of the James source material without the convoluted, complex sentences that, alas, repel many readers. As tautly drawn as the material on one of the samplers for which its heroine is noted, when one of the characters punctuates the prevailing politeness with a barbed or telling line of dialogue, it's as if a sharp and jagged blade suddenly ripped through the fabric of the needlework itself. All this play needs for a successful run is a handsome set, period costumes - and four or five gifted players. (more...)
