BWW Review: LORD at Astral Theater
by Felicitas de la Fare - Apr 9, 2017

Lord is a man dominated by greed, and that quality has made him a despicable human being who contaminates his surroundings. A mean old man who keeps every cent he gets his hands on, he denies help to everyone who asks for it, he ignores the existence of his granddaughter and he seems incapable of any human feeling. His vileness is the result of a traumatic episode: the death of his wife and daughter.  Even in the midst of his twilight days, he does not seem willing to change. But it is Christmas Eve and the holiday spirit makes way for miracles to happen.  Lord will be blessed with the opportunity to change, perhaps not to heal his past life but, at least, to improve his remaining days.

BWW Review: Curiosity-Baiting New Play THE SIEGEL Brings Fresh Comedy to South Coast Repertory
by Michael L. Quintos - Apr 17, 2017

Utilizing a sort of amusing, somewhat wacky plot that somehow works in a sustainably fresh, surprisingly plausible, and audaciously charming way, the world premiere production of playwright Michael Mitnick's thoroughly engaging new play THE SIEGEL---continuing at SCR in Costa Mesa through April 23---proves itself quickly to be one of this season's must-see new plays. Of course, when you see the cast list before even knowing anything about the play, THE SIEGEL is already proving to be quite a curiosity-baiting production. But if you look past the familiar star-wattage and observe the interesting characters and the absorbing story, you'll discover a witty, entertaining, and even thought-provoking comedy that will have you asking... 'are we in a relationship with the right person?' (more...)
