BWW Review: Mosaic Theater's SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF A Reflection of Our TimesBWW Review: Mosaic Theater's SATCHMO AT THE WALDORF A Reflection of Our Times
by Andrew White - Sep 6, 2016

When you have a chance to see a seasoned actor like Craig Wallace, gifted with quiet charisma, performing a one-man show and embodying three inimitably American characters, all I can say is - stop reading this drivel, just go see the man. Director Eleanor Holdrige has collaborated with Wallace to create a timely meditation on fame, race, music, and the tragedy of a generous soul trying to survive in a cynical, brutal world.  Mosaic Theater has launched its second season with a quietly powerful show that should leave audiences with a renewed appreciation for an American legend whose depth of character is rarely acknowledged.

BWW Review: DISTRICT MERCHANTS a Thought-Provoking Retelling of Shakespeare at Folger TheatreBWW Review: DISTRICT MERCHANTS a Thought-Provoking Retelling of Shakespeare at Folger Theatre
by Pamela Roberts - Jun 13, 2016

DISTRICT MERCHANTS, Aaron Posner's new adaptation of Shakespeare's THE MERCHANT OF VENICE, explores the 'other-ness' of being outside the white male stations of power. Setting the work in post-Civil War Washington, D.C., the premiere takes a uniquely American look at race, religion, class and gender. DISTRICT MERCHANTS at the Folger Theatre is an important and compelling work that deftly balances humor among weightier, thought-provoking moments. (more...)
