BWW Review: When Life is Not Our Own to Live- McCasland's NEAT AND TIDYBWW Review: When Life is Not Our Own to Live- McCasland's NEAT AND TIDY
by Kristen Morale - May 18, 2015

Is it possible that the fundamental essence of who we are as people is the same, regardless of how moral or immoral our lives - how we are supposed to live and feel and how we actually do? Do all people truly want to feel loved and as though they are living instead of waiting for their lives to start - to love and be loved and not feeling like life is one gigantic waste? It is safe to say that all human beings desire these basic things that make us not only able to survive, but bring joy to our means of living each day. So what truly makes us bad people if we all seek to find life within our at times confounding need to feel our existence worthwhile? These are only some of the questions which beckon to be answer within Steven Carl McCasland's Neat and Tidy: a wonderfully heartbreaking and intriguing show of emotion which almost renders the audience a compliant child who must uncomfortably experience all that is happening before him; it is almost too powerful to explain in words, which is why I would deem this play the best, most dramatic and most beautiful that I have had the pleasure of seeing thus far.

BWW Reviews: Treading on Broken GlassBWW Reviews: Treading on Broken Glass
by Kristen Morale - Sep 4, 2014

As a result of one man's interest and dedication to the proper telling of actress Laurette Taylor's magnificent story, New York is now fortunate enough to own a piece of the treasure that is Steven Carl MccCasland's What Was Lost. Written and directed by McCasland and hereby added to the list of successful and praise-worthy Beautiful Soup Theater productions, which include a recent production of Liliom and the critically acclaimed Little Wars, What Was Lost is a complete surprise to both those familiar with the story of stage actress Laurette Taylor, and to those who have yet to understand the fortitude one woman can possess in the depths of her nearly shattered heart. It is truly one of my best experiences at the Dorothy Strelsin Theater. (more...)

BWW Reviews: The Unsingable BluesBWW Reviews: The Unsingable Blues
by Kristen Morale - Aug 29, 2014

Beautiful Soup Theater's Shades of Blue: The Decline and Fall of Lady Day is an unconventional, almost chilling ode to Holiday that is careful not to emphasize and dwell upon the singer's musical accolades and success; in fact, it does little to promote her career and the person as seen through the eyes of her adoring public. This production, written and directed by the incredibly talented Steven Carl McCasland (who also founded Beautiful Soup and serves as the group's Artistic Director), wades in the realm of storytelling without the fantastical twist that people always enjoy adding to make their lives seem more interesting - to add drama where drama may sometimes be due.
