Christ Makes Second Coming - This Time As A Pop Star - In DREAMSONG, Now thru 20 AprilChrist Makes Second Coming - This Time As A Pop Star - In DREAMSONG, Now thru 20 April
by BWW News Desk - Apr 10, 2014

Richard Sunday, pastor of evangelical mega-church DreamSong, is losing churchgoers to financial hardships fast - so he stages the second coming of Christ in the form of a highly profitable Christian pop star. DreamSong is an irreverent and audacious comedy that investigates questions of faith and spirituality through a wickedly satirical depiction of evangelical populist religion, politics and popular culture - set to a pulsing score of Christian pop and soaring power ballads.

BWW Reviews: THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE - A Fun Frolic on the SeasBWW Reviews: THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE - A Fun Frolic on the Seas
by Tim Carney - Oct 31, 2013

The Production Company rounded off its 2013 season last night with Gilbert and Sullivan's classic operetta The Pirates of Penzance. There was, however, little reference to the classic that was first performed in 1879. There have been many adaptations of the original, with this production centering on the 1981 Broadway production. This show is undoubtedly fun. In fact, that is the most apt word to describe this production. It's light and fluffy in all the right places, however, its biggest strength is also its ultimate undoing. For while director Dean Bryant has tapped into the light pantomime frolics that make Pirates so enjoyable, there is little variation to the over flamboyance presented on opening night. This show fails to find the truth in moments that call for it. Any honest point is made light of or brushed over with seemingly little regard. The show fights against itself, leaving us partially satisfied but never fully satisfied. (more...)
