by BWW News Desk - Nov 14, 2014

The Adobe Theater's first production of 2015 is The Night Thoreau Spent In Jail, by Jerome Lawrence and Robert E. Lee (authors of "Inherit The Wind"; "Auntie Mame"; and "First Monday In October"). The play is based on Henry David Thoreau's refusal to pay what he considered a 'war tax' for The Mexican-American War. Writing in the New York Times, theater critic Howard Taubman described the ideological relevance of the play to contemporary audiences by stating 'this play and its protagonist, though they are of the 19th century, are speaking to today's concerns: an unwanted war in another land, civil disobedience, the interdependence of man and nature, education, the role of government, and the governed."

The Human Race Theatre Company continues its winning streak of re-imaging large-scale musicals with the Broadway hit Mame. Producing Artistic Director Kevin Moore takes on directing duties and looks to catch the same magic that made recent small-scale productions of Oliver! and Fiddler on the Roof such outstanding successes in the 212-seat Loft Theatre. The show centers around Mame Dennis, a well-to-do eccentric without a care until she becomes the guardian of her ten-year-old nephew, Patrick. Now it's up to her to open new windows and show the boy worlds he never knew existed. Through the Roaring 20s and the Great Depression, Mame teaches Patrick how to 'live, live, live'-whether he's willing or not. It's the dazzling musical that proves life's a banquet, featuring the classic songs 'We Need a Little Christmas,' 'It's Today,' 'Bosom Buddies' and, of course, 'Mame.' (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Sep 29, 2014

In July, Cumberland County Playhouse and the Scopes Trial Festival in Dayton co-produced Front Page News, a new, historically accurate 'play with music' about the famous Scopes 'Monkey Trial.' Following that success, director Jim Crabtree turns to the fictional drama inspired by those events, Inherit The Wind. The play is based on elements of the Scopes trial, but also inspired by the McCarthy hearings of the 1950s. Crabtree's hymn-filled production strives to promote respect for all views. 'Working on Front Page News was a revelation,' says Crabtree. 'The more I learned the actual surrounding the Scopes Trial, the more respect I gained for the real people of Dayton. This knowledge informs our Inherit The Wind.' (more...)
