BWW Review: The Troubies and Getty Villa Throw a HAUNTED HOUSE PARTYBWW Review: The Troubies and Getty Villa Throw a HAUNTED HOUSE PARTY
by Ellen Dostal - Sep 9, 2016

Troubadour Theatre Company's classless clowns of classical comedy go rogue in their latest adaptation at the Getty Villa. Taking generous liberties with the source material (Plautus's Mostellaria) they reinvent the over-2000-year-old play as HAUNTED HOUSE PARTY, A Roman Comedy in their own unique style. Yes, it's definitely 'a comedy tonight.'  (more...)

BWW Review: Troubies Bring Back SANTA and MOTOWN to the FalconBWW Review: Troubies Bring Back SANTA and MOTOWN to the Falcon
by Don Grigware - Dec 18, 2015

This Troubie Christmas Show Santa Claus Is Comin' to Motown was first presented at the Falcon in 2004, so seeing it again was like seeing it for the very first time. Who could remember details from 11 years ago? And also, the Troubies are known for adding new jokes and gags consistently. New jokes about Donald Trump or Hilary Clinton in an election year would not have been in the first rendering of this show. I have always attested to the genius of Matt Walker, Beth Kennedy, Lisa Valenzuela and Rick Batalla, whose improv skills surpass any one else's. If I haven't said it outright before, I'm stating it now, they are THE BEST anywhere. And that goes for the entire gang. (more...)
