BWW Reviews: Woolly Mammoth's ARGUENDO Stumbles in its Attempt to Please the Court
by Benjamin Tomchik - Apr 04, 2014

"Mr. Chief Justice, may it please the court," is the opening every lawyer states before presenting oral arguments. When Arguendo at Woolly Mammoth Theatre keeps its focus on the oral arguments of Barnes v. Glen Theatre Inc., the show is praiseworthy on many levels. But when the Arguendo becomes distracted, it not only fails to please the court, it loses on appeal. (more...)

BWW Blog: Ed Dixon of Casa Manana's OSWALD: THE ACTUAL INTERROGATION - Closing
by Guest Blogger: Ed Dixon - Nov 21, 2013

Our final show was a matinee and we had a good crowd with one exception. There was a special needs patron who kept screaming out things during the first act at the MOST inopportune moments. Apparently he left or was subdued somehow during the second act as we finally had quiet in the house. (To do such a difficult script with running commentary was QUITE challenging.) I had yet another high school friend in the audience as well as a dresser from the original Broadway company of LES MIZ and a couple of Facebook friends and a student of mine from many years ago. All in all, I greeted many old friends here in Ft. Worth and made several new ones to boot, Ben Williams, Mongomery Sutton, Anthony Fortino, Zak Reynolds and so many others. Plus the whole backstage crew at Casa Manana was a delight. Who could ask (as Mr. Porter said) for anything more? (more...)
