BWW Review: Anoka's Lyric Arts Presents 'it's De-lovely' Anything Goes
Jul 25, 2017
Anoka's Lyric Arts Main Street Stage returns this summer with the comedic and uplifting Cole Porter, Guy Bolton, PG Wodehouse, Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse musical Anything Goes. First produced in 1934, in the beginning of the Great Depression, Porter's memorable musical questions the country's status quo and then, the course of true love. Eighty two years later, the musical resonates with Porter's evocative lyrics from the title song: Good authors, too/Who once knew better words/ writing prose/ now use four letter words/ Anything goes/ truding in nude parties studios / Anything goes/ Why nobody will oppose/ Anything goes.

Open Book Theatre Season Directed By All Women
Jul 21, 2017
???????Open Book Theatre Company is helmed by Grosse Ile resident Krista Schafer Ewbank.  "I've always been aware of the lack of roles, both onstage and off, for women.  There are far more women at auditions and vying for jobs, but theatre is often still a man's world."  According to a recent study by Wellesly Centers for Women less than 27% of theatres have women in the artistic director role.   A 2015 study by the Dramatists Guild found that 78% of plays produced were written by men.  "I always look for plays that feature strong roles for women. It's harder than you might think with so many plays being written by men. I think we've found a really good balance."

BWW Review: THE LARAMIE PROJECT presented by The Wandering Theatre Company at Capital Fringe
Jul 17, 2017
Anytime a company presents something I don't expect to see in a festival setting, it generally peaks my interest. The Laramie Project is one of those shows I never thought I would see performed in Capital Fringe. When The Wandering Theatre Company presents the piece and then disrespects the material by doing things to the show that are not needed it results in the following diatribe even if the production features some strong performances.
