BWW Review: A Cape Cod Chekhovian CacophonyBWW Review: A Cape Cod Chekhovian Cacophony
by Kristen Morale - Aug 19, 2015

Is there any way to understand what it is like for a person to sit at home, living in a personal hell of a cocoon and watching the world turn while there seems little hope or chance for that one person? If only for a day or as long as ten years, the time spent waiting in despair, hoping for the anticipated change that never comes, is the existential hell that many people cannot comprehend, but may only observe in others without so much an as explanation as to why or how to help. So saying, Chekhov's plays are filled with downtrodden characters facing an array of issues - inescapable sorrow rooted deep in the core of their beings that cannot comprehend anything but sadness and the gradual decay of their lives - lives so sought after and now left so bitterly complacent. So, instead of mulling over the misery of Chekhovian characters and their somewhat pitiful lives, The Cape Playhouse has decided to present to its audience a tour-de-force of Chekhov's world in a happier, more enjoyable light: through Christopher Durang's Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike, winner of the 2013 Tony Award for Best Play. To say that Durang's talent in writing a play that showcases all that Chekhov can convey through his writings while allowing people to laugh at the misfortunes of others in a lighthearted way is profound, and to hereby present it on a Cape Cod stage is a treat that everyone is bound to enjoy.

BWW Reviews: The Muny's Intoxicating Production of THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESSBWW Reviews: The Muny's Intoxicating Production of THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESS
by Chris Gibson - Jul 9, 2014

Though the weather was stormy on the opening night of the MUNY's presentation of the American Repertory Theater's 2011 update of THE GERSHWINS' PORGY AND BESS, and believe me I drove through some heavy downpours as I made my way to Forest Park, somehow the rain held off and allowed this wonderful show to proceed. Purists have been in an uproar over the fact that the original show has been altered, and while I certainly understand what all the fuss was about, there's no denying the fact that this new interpretation is a moving and compelling production that's definitely a winning crowd-pleaser.
