BWW Reviews: The Engeman 'Produces' a Sensational PRODUCERSBWW Reviews: The Engeman 'Produces' a Sensational PRODUCERS
by Brian Rivera - Jun 8, 2015

I want to express the deepest gratitude to the director, Igor Goldin, for not directing his actors into a corner with this show. Each and every person onstage had a story to tell, and not just some façade to put on: a worry I typically have when viewing a comedic musical. Even each member of the ensemble had fantastic individuality and characterization that it makes one wonder whether an ensemble needs to necessarily “blend together” – which, in fact, is quite difficult not to do when the show decks out its actors in outrageous costumes that make Betsy Johnson and Alexander McQueen look (I won't be forgetting you, anytime soon, Sausage Dress…). Though, it's the joint effort between the lead players and supporting players that create magic on that stage, and this cast did just that. (more...)

BWW Reviews:  A Mesmerizing, Memorable TRAP At Ambassador TheaterBWW Reviews: A Mesmerizing, Memorable TRAP At Ambassador Theater
by Andrew White - Jun 8, 2015

Ambassador Theater, with their production of Polish poet Tadeusz Rózewicz's masterpiece The Trap, introduces Washington audiences to a theatrical genius of Samuel Beckett's stature. The Trap traces key elements in Franz Kafka's life, and Rózewicz's masterstroke is to weave the much darker future-the rise of Nazism, the death of Kafka's sisters' in the Holocaust, and the long Soviet occupation-with the troubled 'present' of Kafka's time.

New Hampshire Theatre Project's Senior Youth Repertory Company to Present RHINOCEROS, 5/15-24New Hampshire Theatre Project's Senior Youth Repertory Company to Present RHINOCEROS, 5/15-24
by BWW News Desk - May 11, 2015

Directed by Robin Fowler, Rhinoceros is a play that from its inception has challenged the status quo. One of the major influences of absurdist theatre, Ionesco's play still resonates with its themes of blind conformity, totalitarianism, metamorphosis, love, despair, and death. The illogical comedy of Rhinoceros hits on many touchstones of the human experience, feeling both familiar and incredibly alien at the same time. (more...)
