BWW Reviews:  Dia-TRIBES at CircuitBWW Reviews: Dia-TRIBES at Circuit
by Joseph Baker - Apr 21, 2015

David Morgan's detailed set design for Circuit Playhouse's production of Nina Raine's TRIBES 'speaks volumes' (no pun intended) for the noisy, ego-driven family the audience is about to meet: Piano, stage left; 'intellectual' clutter scattered about; books everywhere; and - oh, yes - a liquor bottle on the table. The members almost immediately begin to descend on stage, chattering away with the kind of overlapping, hyper-intense dialogue that would make the late Robert Altman smile and put fingers in both of his ears. Nothing seems in harmony hear -- everything is a cacophonous, confused kind of roar.

BWW Review: World Premiere BAD DOG Feels Old, Lacks New Tricks at Orlando ShakespeareBWW Review: World Premiere BAD DOG Feels Old, Lacks New Tricks at Orlando Shakespeare
by Matt Tamanini - Apr 16, 2015

There is a tradition in the American theatre popularized by some of our country's greatest playwrights; Eugene O'Neill, Tennessee Williams, Edward Albee and others. Though generally a product of the mid-20th Century, the trend was reignited in 2007 by Tracy Letts' riveting Tony and Pulitzer-winning play AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY. Since, innumerable new works have put a different spin on the dysfunctional family torn asunder by the ramifications of alcohol and drug addiction; and frankly, it's time for that trend to stop.
