Mary-Arrchie to Stage World Premiere Adaptation of IBSEN'S GHOSTS This FallMary-Arrchie to Stage World Premiere Adaptation of IBSEN'S GHOSTS This Fall
by BWW News Desk - Oct 12, 2015

Mary-Arrchie Theatre Co. is pleased to continue its 30th and final season with the world premiere adaptation of IBSEN'S GHOSTS, adapted and directed by Neo-Futurist Founding Director Greg Allen. Wrestling with the themes of identity, truth, fate and freedom, Allen puts his trademark meta-theatricality on Henrik Ibsen's scandalous 1882 play, Ghosts. Allen's unique spin on Mrs. Alving's classic battle with Pastor Manders includes humor, self-referentiality and a bit of irreverence in this, his first, and apparently last, show with Mary-Arrchie.

BWW Review: Theatre UCF's THE UNDERSTUDY is Uneven, Existential Back-Stage FarceBWW Review: Theatre UCF's THE UNDERSTUDY is Uneven, Existential Back-Stage Farce
by Matt Tamanini - Sep 19, 2015

Complaining about movie stars on Broadway has become a popular pastime for theatre folk, however, the occasional uproar hasn't stemmed the tide of A-listers looking to get back to, or establish, their legit roots. This theatrical divide is at the center of Theresa Rebeck's THE UNDERSTUDY, playing at Theatre UCF's Black Box through October 4th. The dark, back-stage comedy, while occasionally providing poignant personal moments, struggles to settle into a specific tone for any impactful length of time; occasionally playing like a NOISES OFF farce, at others as AN ACTOR'S NIGHTMARE-type fever dream, and still others as a satire on the theatre's (and popular culture's) obsession with celebrity. Unfortunately, despite Mark Brotherton's brisk, thoughtful direction, the production is never able to unpack all of the sloppily assembled concepts in Rebeck's script; resulting in a mildly entertaining, mildly thought-provoking, but ultimately unsatisfying show.

Pulitzer Prize Winner THE FLICK Begins Tonight at Gloucester StagePulitzer Prize Winner THE FLICK Begins Tonight at Gloucester Stage
by BWW News Desk - Aug 20, 2015

Gloucester Stage presents Annie Baker's The Flick from tonight, August 20 through September 12 at 267 East Main Street, Gloucester, MA. Winner of the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Drama, The Flick, follows three underpaid employees of a run-down movie theater in central Massachusetts as they mop the floors and attend to one of the last 35-millimeter film projectors in the state while also revealing touching and funny truths about their search for identity. Their tiny battles and not-so-tiny heartbreaks play out in the empty aisles of the movie theater, becoming more compelling than the lackluster, second-run movies on screen. In The Flick playwright Annie Baker uses keen insight and a finely-tuned comic eye to create a funny and heartfelt cry for authenticity in a fast-changing world. In addition to winning a Pulitzer Prize for The Flick, Ms. Baker also received the Susan Smith Blackburn Award and an Obie Award for Playwriting. (more...)
