BWW Review: Audiences Rejoice for THE CHRISTIANS at the AlleyBWW Review: Audiences Rejoice for THE CHRISTIANS at the Alley
by Alexander Garza - May 19, 2016

If you've ever walked into a service at a megachurch, then you know what's at stake for Pastor Paul in THE CHRISTIANS. The play is daring and bold.

BWW Review: DTC and Alley Co-Production ALL THE WAY Stuns in Dallas and HoustonBWW Review: DTC and Alley Co-Production ALL THE WAY Stuns in Dallas and Houston
by Katricia Lang - Mar 23, 2016

ALL THE WAY opens with blinking blood-red lights, deafening gunshots, vibrant colors in impressionistic soft-focus. Moments later, you can cut the tension with a knife or the crisp, clear black and white projections. From the start, Director Kevin Moriarty establishes that the Dallas Theater Center and Alley Theatre's stunning co-production of Robert Schenkkan's exhilarating political thriller is no documentary or a biopic.

'MASTER HAROLD'...AND THE BOYS Play the Wharton Center, Now thru 1/31'MASTER HAROLD'...AND THE BOYS Play the Wharton Center, Now thru 1/31
by BWW News Desk - Jan 30, 2015

With the metallic clink of a coin in a jukebox and the scratch of a needle on a record, the character Willie utters the conclusive words, 'Let's dream.' And so they do. Caught up in a whirlwind of post-World War II traumas and the suffocating tensions of racism in 1950s South Africa, the three actors of this masterpiece by Athol Fugard bang and clash against their fluctuating society in this tale of hope, escapism, dark secrets, and the cruel power of language - creating one of the 20th century's greatest plays. 'MASTER HAROLD'...and the boys will play at Wharton Center for Performing Arts tonight, January 30, and Saturday, January 31 in the Pasant Theatre. (more...)
