BWW Reviews: Oh, 'Tis Better to be a Pirate Indeed!
by Kristen Morale - Dec 29, 2013

What fun are the action fillEd Battle scenes with their epic swashbuckling and wonderfully choreographed crew of strong men making their way across the stage to proudly proclaim their identities as pirates; with what grace do the dainty young ladies flit about and admire those same pirates who come and take them away with promises of marriage, almost too fantastical a concept to ever really work. How wonderful it is to watch two lovers remain together through the difficulties of a leap year birthday. Simply put, the New York Gilbert and Sullivan Players' production of the infamous The Pirates of Penzance is one of the most remarkable shows a theatergoer will see before the near year rolls in.

BWW Reviews: THE NORMAL HEART at the Fountain Theatre Presents a Timeless Call to Action!
by Shari Barrett - Oct 04, 2013

Not seen in L.A. for over 16 years, THE NORMAL HEART remains one of the theater's most powerful evenings ever.

BWW Reviews: New Players Theater Does HENRY IV: PART ONE Justice
by Lisa Norris - Jul 14, 2013

Appearing in rotation with its production of "The Taming of The Shrew" as part of their summer series at Mill Run Amphitheater's "Island", "Henry IV: Part One" is one of Shakespeare's history plays, but this version is also one of the more accessible Shakespeare productions I have seen in awhile. The storyline, as written by the bard, is admittedly a bit dry at times, but this particular production is acted with gusto, and the plotline is easily understandable, even without the program synopsis. The tale centers around the universal themes of family and duty, and is a coming of age tale of Hal, the Prince of Wales who finds himself torn between living the life of the free and easy at Eastcheap Tavern with his buddies, or assuming the duty of protecting the kingdom of his father, King Henry IV.
