by Jennifer Perry - Dec 9, 2016

While those seeking a similarly scaled production to the original Broadway production (or even the revival) might leave the Eisenhower Theatre somewhat disappointed, those open to experiencing a new interpretation of the familiar material might leave feeling they've had an opportunity to look at an old favorite with new eyes. Perhaps they might better appreciate what drew them to the story in the first place. (more...)

BWW Review: Compelling, Well-Written and Performed SEX WITH STRANGERS at Cleveland Play HouseBWW Review: Compelling, Well-Written and Performed SEX WITH STRANGERS at Cleveland Play House
by Roy Berko - Oct 31, 2016

As the lights come up on the thrust stage in Cleveland Play House's Outcalt Theatre, revealed was a large comfortable room, and a woman snuggled up on a chair by a free-standing fireplace, reading a book. Outside a large span of windows, snow could be seen cascading down. Suddenly a car is heard and headlights glared through the window. Pounding is heard at the door. Who is there? What's going on? Sounds like the opening scene of a mystery. But, no, this is the start of Laura Eason's SEX WITH STRANGERS, a charming and intriguing play of 'lust, love and the complex nature of identity in our digital-dominated era.' (more...)

by Marianka Swain - Jul 13, 2016

Anyone who ever played 'shop' as a child, trading real or imaginary objects over a table, will experience a thrill of recognition at Fiasco Theater's stripped-back take on Sondheim and James Lapine's ode to and deconstruction of storytelling. That's what we get for the swiftly evoked bakery, and there's a dressmaker's dummy standing in for a tree, a feather duster and Christmas tree ornament for a golden egg-laying hen, a ladder for a mighty tower, a wooden crate for a throne, shadow play during the action sequences, and flapping pieces of paper as the ever-helpful birds.
