BWW Reviews: THE INVISIBLE HAND at ACT Grabs You & Doesn't Let GoBWW Reviews: THE INVISIBLE HAND at ACT Grabs You & Doesn't Let Go
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(9/15/2014) - There are moments, Dear Reader, when you can encounter a work that can completely revitalize your love of good theater. Such was a moment for me the other night when I was lucky enough to catch ACT's production of "The Invisible Hand". I really wasn't sure what I was in for except that it was a play about politics and economics in Pakistan from Ayad Akhtar, the Pulitzer Prize winning author of "Disgraced". What I got was an absolutely gripping evening of theater thanks to a killer production and a riveting play that I cannot urge you enough to go see.

by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(9/15/2014) - In order to put up the highly complex musical of "Man of La Mancha" you need more than the voices to fill the main roles. You need an ensemble who understands the text and the tone of the situation as well as a pacing to keep this intricate show moving along. Alas, that is what was missing from Seattle Musical Theatre's current production and is what hampers their show.

BWW Reviews: STC's BLOOD RELATIONS Is Overly ComplicatedBWW Reviews: STC's BLOOD RELATIONS Is Overly Complicated
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(9/14/2014) - Many have attempted to fictionalize the tale of Lizzie Borden. Hell, there's even a rock musical version of the story (that is awesome, by the way). Why? Because we all love a scandal. If this had happened today it'd be all over the news-tainment channels and internet for days (until the next scandal comes along). So authors and producers keep coming back to it especially since she got away with it, assuming she really did it at all. No one really knows for sure. And while the tale still lends some fascination, the current retelling in Sound Theatre Company's production of "Blood Relations" manages to get unnecessarily complicated while not really conveying much that's interesting or enlightening about the story.

BWW Reviews: 5th Avenue's A CHORUS LINE Is Almost a Triple ThreatBWW Reviews: 5th Avenue's A CHORUS LINE Is Almost a Triple Threat
by Jay Irwin (Seattle)

(9/12/2014) - There's something to be said for seeing a company of incredible dancers performing the classic A Chorus Line especially when they're doing much of the original Michael Bennett choreography as is currently being presented at the 5th Avenue Theatre. Even better when you've got an entire company of incredible singers as well. You've almost got the triple threat that the show needs to be great. Unfortunately it's that third element, the acting, where the 5th Avenue's production falls a little short and so the story of these Broadway gypsies suffers a bit.
