    BWW Reviews: ArtsWest's JUDY'S SCARY LITTLE CHRISTMAS Is Fun but Not Quite LittleBWW Reviews: ArtsWest's JUDY'S SCARY LITTLE CHRISTMAS Is Fun but Not Quite Little
    by Jay Irwin - Dec 15, 2014

    You know how those 'Saturday Night Live' skits are where it's a fantastic premise and really funny to start out but then they have no idea how to end it so it drones on and on. Well the current off-kilter holiday production out at ArtsWest is like that. Filled with gut busting laughs and wonderful musical numbers in Act One but then turns into something very different in Act Two and keeps going on and on and ends about four different times.

    by Finny (Amanda Finn) - Dec 5, 2014

    Nothing says Christmas like watching Mommie Dearest descend the stairs in four inch heels, a robe, sheer pantyhose, and a smug grin of self-satisfaction.This holiday tradition is true, however, for the members of the Crawford family in StageQ's recent production of Christmas with the Crawfords written by Richard Winchester and Mark Sargent. Based loosely on the memoir made film 'Mommie Dearest' written by Joan Crawford's daughter Christina and combined with a menagerie of guest stars of a bygone era, this is a comedy just bursting with eccentricities.

    by BWW News Desk - Nov 3, 2014

    Fearless Productions will present "Legends and Bridge" by C. Stephen Foster in association with Black Box Theatre Publishing. This play is a comedy imagining former, silver screen legend Joan Crawford (matronly, washed up, and pickled on spiked Pepsi) who invites Judy Garland (recently fired from her CBS TV show) and Bette Davis (bitter at no longer being the "Queen of Hollywood") up to her Manhattan apartment in 1964 to live with her as they work on a "secret" film project.

    BWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the WaterBWW Reviews: Theatreworks' PSYCHO BEACH PARTY Flounders in the Water
    by Christi Esterle - Oct 24, 2014

    You'd think a play called Psycho Beach Party would be a little more, well....crazy. But Charles Busch's affectionate parody of 1960s beach movies seldom seems more unhinged than the cheerful teen romps it draws inspiration from. Oh, it's not all sun and fun in the sand, to be sure. There's a fair amount of sexual kink, a domineering mother who could give Margaret White a run for her money, and revelations of a tragic past, but it all feels so light. The poster for the Theatreworks production, featuring a knife-wielding beach bunny, promises a gruesome good time that the play never really delivers. (more...)

    If the writers of Airplane! had written a film noir, it would be Joan Crawford in...'Flesh and Blood!' The show chronicles the iconic Joan Crawford taking on yet another classic film role, Beulah Drake - the quintessential martyr house frau of film noir. Beulah trades in her apron for jewels and minks by unwittingly associating with the criminal element. Soon, she finds herself entangled in a plot of murder, revenge, and the sordid realm of childhood stardom! If you're not on the edge of your seat yet, you need a smaller chair. (more...)
