BWW Reviews: Counter-Productions Presents a Perfectly Delightful PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE Photos BWW Reviews: Counter-Productions Presents a Perfectly Delightful PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE
(4/21/2014) - Lately, it seems as if there's been something in the air in the Rhode Island theatre scene. Or maybe something in the drinking water. Something rather dark. There are a number of plays that have just ended, are running currently, or are about to open, which deal with very dark, disturbing or depressing themes and images. There's nothing inherently wrong with that, of course. And no rhyme or reason for why it's so pervasive right now, it's mere coincidence. Still, there's a lot of dark out there right now and it's nice to mix things up with lighter fare, perhaps something along the lines of the delightful production of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, presented by Counter-Productions Theatre Company, which just closed at Ninety-Five Empire.

BWW Reviews: WE WILL ROCK YOU at PPAC Lives Up to Its Title Photos BWW Reviews: WE WILL ROCK YOU at PPAC Lives Up to Its Title
(4/16/2014) - It's not every rock band or musical act that could successfully create musical based on its many widely varying songs. There has to be a certain uniformity, power and resonance to the music, all of the music, carrying through many songs, rather than just one or two 'greatest hits.' And they have to be songs that can be strung together to create a cohesive whole that works as a musical with a plot, story, characters, etc. If there's any proof that it can be done, and done smashingly well, it's found in We Will Rock You, the 'rock theatrical' created through the combination of British writer Ben Elton and the music of Queen.
