Dunham Books Releases DANCING THROUGH DARKNESS by Ann Markham Walsh
by BWW News Desk - Jun 28, 2013

Based on the recorded memories, diary and Love Letters of Saartje (Selma Wijnberg Engel) and Chaim, Dancing Through Darkness is a true story that exists only because of the redemptive quality of love and the transformative power of dreams. From Poland and Holland, respectively, Saartje and Chaim met and fell in love almost the instant their eyes met when they were forced to dance together for the entertainment of the Nazi SS guards at Sobibor Death Camp in Poland in April, 1943. Even without a common language between them, and amidst the 'drifting ash and smells from the fires, [and] in spite of the hunger and the fear' their love persisted, day after day. In triumphant defiance of the brutality that surrounded them, they promised each other that they would face the horror together and that they would survive. Saartje and Chaim's dream of living to share a normal life was simple, but it gave them the hope and courage to persevere through the unspeakable atrocities of Sobibor, one of Hitler's most efficient Death Camps.

BWW Reviews: SHREK THE MUSICAL at the Arundel Barn Playhouse; New England Premiere Lets its Freak Flag Fly
by Scott Moreau - Jul 17, 2013

There are many challenges that face a theatre who chooses to mount such a difficult production. First and foremost are how to bring these iconic characters to life as realistically as possible, while still showcasing the actors underneath. Second is how to present the various locations presented in the piece (SHREK'S swamp, the castle in Duloc, Fiona's tower, etc) in a way that not only is appropriate, but can easily be changed to the next. The show has now made the jump to regional theatres around the country, and the Arundel Barn Playhouse is the first theatre in all of New England to present it. It's a lot to undertake, but the Playhouse rose to the occasion, and I think you will be quite surprised and delighted at the results. (more...)
