by Juan Michael Porter II - May 19, 2016

I longed to see more. One would love to see the Martha Graham Dance Company commission a new from Ms. Zall. Unlike their usual fare, she clearly understands stagecraft and is able to communicate in the language of their founder. It seems to me that all she needs is the opportunity. Denise Vale, the Graham company's Artistic Associate was in the audience. Perhaps she will communicate what a boon it would be to work with Ms. Zall to her colleagues. (more...)

Pear Theatre completes its 2015/2016 season with AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, a searing, dark comedy of an American family, where secrets and lies spill out over dysfunctional dinners and drug-laced arguments, and nothing is sacred-or safe. Called 'Hugely entertaining!

BWW Review: A Thoroughly Reinvented GLASS MENAGERIE Thrills in Sierra MadreBWW Review: A Thoroughly Reinvented GLASS MENAGERIE Thrills in Sierra Madre
by Don Grigware - May 9, 2016

For many, Tennessee Williams' first play The Glass Menagerie remains his finest. Semi-autobiographical, the play takes place in St. Louis during the Depression and depicts the relationships between a restless alcoholic/shoe factory worker/wannabe writer, his overbearing mother and his psychologically deficient sister - all of which stems from Williams' actual background. Williams finds his voice in Tom. (Christian Durso) (more...)

BWW Review: Upstream Theater's Truly Special THE GLASS MENAGERIEBWW Review: Upstream Theater's Truly Special THE GLASS MENAGERIE
by Chris Gibson - May 6, 2016

I've always appreciated live stagings of THE GLASS MENAGERIE far more than the attempts by Hollywood to turn it into a film. They always spoil it by messing with the ending. It's a melancholy slice of playwright Tennessee Williams' life, albeit, one that bears more than a slight resemblance, but which has been fictionalized to a degree. And, you won't find any tacked on 'happy ending' here, which is the way I like it. Williams disowned the first film version, and rightly so. It's not meant to be neatly resolved, and that's why it makes an emotional impact. Upstream Theater's current production is brilliantly staged, cast, and directed. I don't think I've seen a finer presentation, or one that was as engaging as this one. I think it's a must-see, even if you've seen the play many, many times before. This is a fresh and lively take that's well worthy of your time and attention, so go already! (more...)
