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. At the center, as a kind of eye to this verbal hurricane, is 'Billy,' sweetly casting his gaze from one pair of lips to another, as that is the only way he can absorb the conversations that are colliding about him.

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.

by BWW News Desk - Apr 14, 2015

Penobscot Theatre Company will present Maine's professional premiere of August: Osage County, written by Tracy Letts and directed by Bari Newport, April 30 through May 17, at the historic Bangor Opera House.

Humor proves a thin veil for decades of deceit and disappointment, but when old resentments rise to the surface and secrets are shared, laughter is the only recourse. (more...)
