by David Fick - Sep 13, 2014

With its alternative creative springboard, STRUCK SILENT captures a sense of what it means to be an aging person in a modern society, but the piece never fully distils its inspirations into a thesis that confronts, challenges or moves the audience in the moment of performance. (more...)

East Lynne Theater Company presents the world premiere ZORRO!
by BWW News Desk - Jul 08, 2014

The award-winning Equity professional East Lynne Theater Company's next production is a swashbuckler: the world premiere of 'Zorro!' based on Johnston McCulley's 'The Curse of Capistrano' (1919) adapted by James Rana. Spanish for 'fox,' Zorro fought the oppressive colonial government in Spanish California with a quick sword and wit. Wearing a mask, he kept his identity secret, even to the woman he loved. In 1939, Bob Kane and Bill Finger gave credit to McCulley's masked avenger, with his dual identity, as their inspiration for 'Batman.' Like Bruce Wayne and Batman, Don Diego and Zorro are never seen together at the same time. (more...)
