InterAct Theatre Kicks off the New Year with World Premiere of MARCUS/EMMAInterAct Theatre Kicks off the New Year with World Premiere of MARCUS/EMMA
by BWW News Desk - Dec 5, 2016

What does it mean to be radical? InterAct Theatre Company presents a vision of two of America's wildest activist leaders, Marcus Garvey and Emma Goldman, in Mary Tuomanen's poignant, twisted, and darkly funny MARCUS/EMMA.  This gripping play could not be more relevant, challenging the audience to relate Garvey's and Goldman's subversive ideas surrounding tensions of race, gender, sexuality, culture, capitalism and socialism to our current political climate.  Tuomanen's voice is fresh and exciting -- a luminary in Philadelphia's arts scene, she was recently rated Best Theatre Talent 2015, by Philadelphia Magazine.

BWW Review: Unseen Images' FAR AWAY Creates a Disturbing Dream World at The VenueBWW Review: Unseen Images' FAR AWAY Creates a Disturbing Dream World at The Venue
by Matt Tamanini - Oct 29, 2016

From the moment you entire The Venue and see Amanda Hudson-Giese sitting in a rocking chair on stage, there is a dream-like quality to Unseen Images Theatre's production of Caryl Churchill's 2000 play, FAR AWAY. This dream-like quality continues as the play-proper begins, but it quickly spirals into a jarring nightmare, in which fragments of scenes and stories present a disjointed look at a world at war with itself. Less interested in sharing a complete narrative, FAR AWAY instead sets up brief, bizarre glimpses into a world that appears to be devolving into a dystopian hellscape. (more...)

The School of Theatre at Florida State University Presents CLOUD 9The School of Theatre at Florida State University Presents CLOUD 9
by BWW News Desk - Oct 28, 2016

This time-shifting comedy challenges and parodies the rigid attitudes and social codes of the Victorian era. With a cadre of intriguing and deceptive characters, the play is a non-stop round robin of liaisons and duplicity. Act I begins in British colonial Africa during the Victorian era in 1880 and Act II continues the story only 25 years later, but is set in 1980's London. Come along as these characters decide whether to toe the line, cross it, or obliterate it all together. (more...)

BWW Review: BLUE HEART, Orange Tree Theatre, 18 October 2016BWW Review: BLUE HEART, Orange Tree Theatre, 18 October 2016
by Aliya Al-Hassan - Oct 19, 2016

Carol Churchill is one of our greatest playwrights; gems such as Top Girls and Far Away have challenged the concepts of theatrical writing in wonderful and exciting ways. Blue Heart at Orange Tree Theatre is a different animal. It is both clever and absurd, and Churchill tests many traditions of theatrical form, yet feels a little empty at its core. (more...)
