by Cary Ginell - Aug 20, 2015

Beginning this Saturday, the Elite Theatre Company's South Stage will be presenting Zero Hour, a one-man play about legendary actor Zero Mostel. The project is near and dear to the heart of actor John Medeiros, who has tried to get it produced for almost 5 years. Medeiros has performed in two roles made famous by Mostel, Pseudolus (A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum) and Tevye (Fiddler on the Roof). He won the Four Star Alliance Award in 2013 for Outstanding Lead Actor for his portrayal of Tevye. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Second City's ITHAMAR HAS NOTHING TO SAY Provides Silent, Sly AmusementBWW Reviews: The Second City's ITHAMAR HAS NOTHING TO SAY Provides Silent, Sly Amusement
by Rachel Weinberg - Jun 15, 2015

While 'Ithamar Has Nothing to Say' is a silent solo sketch show - and the only show of this kind I have seen - I nevertheless must use the written word to describe the happenings therein. Directed by Frank Caeti, Mainstage alum Ithamar Enriquez takes the stage in a one-man show that harkens back to the silent film comedies of the 1930s made famous by such noted film artists as Buster Keaton, and, of course, Charlie Chaplin. Like the latter filmmaker, Enriquez exudes charm and slyness in this 50-minute solo piece. And like Keaton, he relies on sight gags and heavily physical bits to tell the story of each of his sketches. Most of these succeed; the occasional sketch feels like a misstep. (more...)
