BWW Review: TexARTS Examines the Meaning of A FEW GOOD MEN in Lakeway, TXBWW Review: TexARTS Examines the Meaning of A FEW GOOD MEN in Lakeway, TX
by Amy Bradley - Oct 14, 2016

Currently playing in Lakeway, Texas, Aaron Sorkin's original work A FEW GOOD MEN has been brought to life, as part of at TexARTS Academy's Professional Series. The average person recognizes this title based on its Oscar acclaim as a Best Picture nominee, and infamous line referencing ones inability to handle the truth. But in fact, A FEW GOOD MEN has a more subtle beginning based on a conversation Sorkin had with his sister regarding her time in Cuba, at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base. Premiering in 1989, and then adapted for screen a few years later, this play highlights an unlikely scenario between young men defending their honor and country while taking a hazing ritual too far. This courtroom drama introduces the audience to the military mindset, through chants and marches, and the responsibility involved with following orders without question. While investigating what seems like a 'cut and dry' case, a high level conspiracy is uncovered with regards to two young marines being charged with murder. As the story unravels, the audience can piece together the timeline and key facts the lawyers are desperately searching for within the case. TexARTs presents this play with high brow sophistication, without alienating members who have not served in the military but might have caught an episode of Law & Order. (more...)

THE MERCHANT OF VENICE Opens Tonight at Classic TheatreTHE MERCHANT OF VENICE Opens Tonight at Classic Theatre
by BWW News Desk - Feb 13, 2015

In this tangled tale of friendship, romance and revenge, a merchant borrows money to help his friend woo a rich heiress. Shylock, a Jewish moneylender, agrees to loan the money with one caveat: the merchant must pay the loan back in full, or else he will be forced to surrender a pound of his own flesh. When the merchant is unexpectedly bankrupted, who will save the day when Shylock comes, knife in hand, to claim his pound of flesh? Funny, horrifying, charming and unsettling, The Merchant of Venice has remained one of Shakespeare's most popular -and controversial - plays for more than four centuries. The Classic Theatre production features some of South Texas' premiere talent, including Classic Theatre founding member Allan S. Ross as Shylock. (more...)
