BWW Review: Let There Be No Prejudice HereBWW Review: Let There Be No Prejudice Here
by Kristen Morale - Aug 13, 2015

It is safe to say that Monomoy has done a spectacular job staging Austen's work: from the chosen cast, the beautiful period costumes and the way in which it just felt like the novel should feel, there is really nothing bad to say about this production. The set was beautiful, and without moving more than a few chairs around made it both appropriate and very efficient throughout the entire show. The portrayal of the ball, a wonderful scene filled with dancing, merriment and a bit of tenseness, was beautifully staged. It is difficult to transform a stage into something that makes the audience really feel as though it becomes part of the period in which the story takes place, but this was successfully done at this production. And, what would a wonderful production be without the actors who make it all possible? Darren Brown as Mr. Darcy is able to capture the wonderful mix of superiority, insecurity and just the general sense of discomfort that make Mr. Darcy the truly intriguing character he is. There are moments when Brown makes Darcy appear noticeably uncomfortable around others, even when he simultaneously trying to uphold his "mightier-than-thou" appearance, and the transition this character makes (or rather, the revelation, as I don't think Darcy really changes his personalityÖhe just lets its out) from being stern and unapproachable to vulnerable and just plain human is astounding. Brown really does a great job in showing how such a man can change, when given sufficient and acceptable reason and chance to. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Monomoy's SPELLING BEE Spells Success!BWW Reviews: Monomoy's SPELLING BEE Spells Success!
by Kristen Morale - Aug 10, 2015

What would happen if one were to switch the first few letters of "amazing" to form a new, exciting word that only certain minds could quickly figure out? Actually, who cares! As long as each of you knows the word's definition and what it implies, there can only be synonyms of the word used to describe Monomoy Theatre's current production of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee. Having never before seen a production of this rather well-known comedy of a musical, letting Monomoy give me a very impressive and lasting first impression was a wonderful was an absolute privilege; I didn't expect anything less from the group, as the amount of talent on stage makes every play and musical performed wonderful, to say the least. Spelling Bee is really something quite special, as such a simple idea for a plot is taken and transformed, through music and rather peculiar characters, into something that will keep audiences laughing for an evening; it is a production that will not have anyone spelling "regret."
