    by David Fick - Jan 22, 2015

    The premiere of SAMSA-MASJIEN in the Baxter Theatre's Flipside venue last week was my second experience of the play. I previously saw the piece at the Klein Karoo Nasionale Kunstefees (KKNK) last year, where it was staged in a hangar on the grounds of the South African National Defence Force, a seemingly infinite space that suited the operatic scope of the production a little better than the relatively more intimate (though still fairly sized) alternative theatre venue at the Baxter Theatre. Nonetheless, SAMSA-MASJIEN remains an intense rendering of and meditation on aging, the nature of dementia, family and compassion. (more...)

    BWW Interviews: Mildred's Umbrella Artistic Director Jennifer Decker Talks RED DEATHBWW Interviews: Mildred's Umbrella Artistic Director Jennifer Decker Talks RED DEATH
    by Katricia Lang - Oct 10, 2014

    Award-winning theatre company Mildred's Umbrella is producing RED DEATH, an absurd black comedy inspired by Raymond Chandler, Franz Kafka, Kurt Vonnegut, and Edgar Allan Poe. As if that isn't enough, the cast and crew read like a who's who of Houston theatre. With all this talent, this production is bound to be good. Expect deft direction from Jennifer Decker, quality acting from Bree Bridger, Karen Schlag, and Christie Guidry Stryk, exquisite costume and set design from Jodi Bobrovsky, and a sexy, thrilling, and smart play written by Houston favorite Lisa D'Amour. And that's just who I could remember off the top of my head. (more...)

    by BWW News Desk - Sep 10, 2014

    Fresh from their popular and critically acclaimed presentation of The Vaclav Havel Project in Washington, DC and The Prague Fringe Festival, Alliance for New Music-Theatre presents a dark and comical interpretation of Franz Kafka's iconic work through the lens of this season's complex theme, The Outsider's Outsider. Kafka, the son of a German-speaking, Jewish family living as outsiders in Czech-speaking Prague, imaginatively creates an alter-ego figure, Gregor, also the son of a dogmatic father and otherwise claustrophobic family, who inexplicably wakes up to find himself transformed into a giant insect, and is further ostracized as an outsider living in the midst of his family.
