BWW Reviews: VANYA & SONIA & MASHA & SPIKE at Santa Paula Theater CenterBWW Reviews: VANYA & SONIA & MASHA & SPIKE at Santa Paula Theater Center
by Cary Ginell - Aug 2, 2015

Although I am not as familiar with the plays of Anton Chekhov as some, Christopher Durang's play, Vanya & Sonia & Masha & Spike, doesn't require a pop quiz of Chekhovian references in order for one to enjoy the show. This character study into the lives of three squabbling, middle-aged siblings has enough humor and poignancy in it so you don't have to have your SparkNotes handy to enjoy it. The play, produced by Leslie Nichols and directed by Fred Helsel, plays at the Santa Paula Theater Center through August 16. (more...)

BWW Reviews: LETTICE AND LOVAGE at Quotidian Theatre Co.BWW Reviews: LETTICE AND LOVAGE at Quotidian Theatre Co.
by Pamela Roberts - Apr 23, 2015

Why let the boring old truth stand in the way of a compelling story? Lettice Douffet lives her life by a code her flamboyant actress mother taught her: 'Enlarge! Enliven! Enlighten!' She eschews "the mere" - the regular, tedious, mundane, or mediocre in life. Lettice and Lovage contrasts dreamer and free spirit Lettice Douffet with bureaucrat Lotte Schoen, a rigid realist. Despite their differences the two find commonality and camaraderie. Quotidian Theatre - theatre dedicated to the poetry of everyday life, no-frills storytelling, and realistic situations and dialogue - brings us Peter Shaffer's witty clash of opposites ultimately finding solidarity.
