BWW Reviews: THE GLASS MENAGERIE Shimmers Onstage at Act II PlayhouseBWW Reviews: THE GLASS MENAGERIE Shimmers Onstage at Act II Playhouse
by Kelli Curtin - Nov 3, 2014

The classic Tennessee Williams play THE GLASS MENAGERIE is a show that paints a picture from personal truth and the emotional watercolors of memory. It is a beautifully written play with affecting dialog and themes. This show draws the audience into the story as soon as Tom, the narrator, steps on the stage to explain what the audience is about to see is a "memory play," where each scene is a crucial memory in Tom's life. Tom discloses, "I give you truth in the pleasant disguise of illusion." The production of THE GLASS MENAGERIE at Act II Playhouse, under the direction of James J. Christy, is seamless and it captures the essence of Williams's work with graceful precision. (more...)

BWW Reviews: ROUNDING THIRD is a Homerun at Act II PlayhouseBWW Reviews: ROUNDING THIRD is a Homerun at Act II Playhouse
by Kelli Curtin - Sep 16, 2014

Act II Playhouse opened its sixteenth season last weekend with ROUNDING THIRD. This play, beautifully written by Richard Dresser, tells the story of two Little League coaches, who have very different attitudes towards the game. One coach, Michael, is the assistant coach who has little knowledge about baseball and how the game is played. The other coach, Don, has been coaching Little League for years and was part of a team in his childhood. This production of ROUNDING THIRD is brilliantly performed, moving and intelligently funny, making this show a season opener for the 2014/15 season at Act II Playhouse that knocks it out of the ball park.
