Serenbe Playhouse's Sixth Season to Feature THE SECRET GARDEN, EVITA & MoreSerenbe Playhouse's Sixth Season to Feature THE SECRET GARDEN, EVITA & More
by BWW News Desk - Nov 11, 2014

Time and time again Serenbe Playhouse has wowed us with their unorthodox, open-air performances. Their unerring commitment and faith in the transformative power of the stage is quite the literal breath of fresh air for Atlanta, and the national regional theatre scene. Uncompromising in their ambition, Serenbe Playhouse kicked off their summer with a seductive retelling of Rogers & Hammerstein's Oklahoma!, in which they abandoned the Technicolor landscape of the West for its gritty underbelly full of lust and greed. The show went on to be nominated for a staggering 11 Suzi Bass awards - more than any other production this year. From there they brought the barbarity of Sleepy Hollow on its head with a series of frightening, sold-out performances depicting the harrowed tale of Ichabod Crane, Katrina and Brom Bones like never before.

The company has the vocals to do justice to the music and several performers shine, but this garden has a dearth of color. (more...)
