ImprovBoston Presents THE IMPROVISED POWERPOINT MYSTERIES: MIKE AND HIS FRIENDS SAVE THE WORLD
Mar 27, 2017
Former ImprovBoston Mainstage Performer Mike Morrell creates a Powerpoint presentation with off-the-wall images for his friends to deliver. The catch? His friends have never seen the slides before. Luckily, they're all veteran Boston improvisers. Audiences will find the comedy in most non-performers' worst nightmare: being totally and hilariously unprepared for the big presentation. The Improvised Powerpoint Mysteries: Mike and His Friends Save the World turns the stage into a boardroom on April 7th at ImprovBoston - for one night only.
BWW Review: THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND Rings Down the Curtain on Bad Habit Productions
Mar 25, 2017
Bad Habit Productions is about to drop the final curtain after ten years of delivering award-winning theater, but they are not taking the easy way out. Director Dawn M. Simmons and an ensemble of eight actors make sense of Tom Stoppard's 1968 comedy whodunnit, THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND, even as they squeeze very bit of theatrical nonsense from this old chestnut. The troupe plays well together and looks like they're taking their roles seriously, despite their characters saying and doing ridiculous things.
BWW Review: A PROPER PLACE at Village Shipwrecks Itself
Mar 24, 2017
There's the old adage in any kind of entertainment that if you have a strong finish, the audience can forgive some pitfalls that may have come before. Unfortunately the new work currently playing at Village Theatre has many of those pitfalls (and some good moments too) but they're followed by one of the most egregiously bad, anti-climactic and lackluster endings I think I've ever seen.

BWW Feature: DramaDogs Presents: FROM EVE'S FAIR HAND at The Faulkner Gallery
Mar 23, 2017
A company with a persistent ambition to prioritize social justice in their work, DramaDogs has adopted a format for short, dramatic presentations that inform and entertain, and encourage audience engagement. Their production of From Eve's Fair Hand, by local writers Jinny Webber and Terre Ouwehand, shares (through monologue) the voices of female writers who left their mark on our cultural history. An appropriate celebration of Women's History Month, From Eve's Fair Hand introduces women like Amelia Bassano Lanier; Lady Mary Wroth; Aphra Behn; George Sands (nom-de-plume of Amantine-Lucile-Aurore Dupin); Gertrude Stein; Virginia Woolf; and Vita Sackville-West; women who dared to write-while-female in eras when that act was considered one of non-conformity or rebellion.

BWW Blog: Amanda Grillo - Theater Club Corner: Meet the Short Play Festival Directors
Mar 21, 2017
Coming up March 24th and 25th, we have the theater club's first short play festival. Completely student run, this festival will showcase published plays as well as two original student works. These plays are performed, designed, and directed by the students. As one of the student directors, I can't begin to tell you about how proud I am to be a part of this festival. This is my first time directing outside of classes and I am absolutely thrilled to be directing Smitten written by Mark Harvey Levine. The entire experience has shaped me as a director, actor, designer, and even an audience member. It has definitely impacted how I will look at future productions and has given me even more respect for the various positions involved in making a production happen. Let's meet some of my other fellow directors shall we?

BWW Review: The Barn's Southern-fried and bred SEEING STARS IN DIXIE
Mar 17, 2017
Featuring a quintet of charming and engaging players, under the deft and focused direction of Everett Tarlton, Seeing Stars in Dixie (which winds up a month-long run at The Barn this coming Sunday, March 19) is the kind of laugh-out-loud funny that only comes from the heart, as it relates the story of a group of people in Natchez, Mississippi, circa 1956, who are caught up in all the hoopla and hullabaloo of a movie, starring Elizabeth Taylor and Montgomery Clift, being made right over yonder. It's based in fact: Taylor, Clift, Lee Marvin, Eva Marie Saint and all the accompanying Hollywood types came to Natchez to film Raintree County, a Southern gothic tale that transformed the sleepy, small town into a veritable beehive of Tinsel Town talk and celebrity hijinks.
