PlayMakers Repertory Company Presents TWELFTH NIGHT
by BWW News Desk - Feb 9, 2017

Inspired by the photographic works of Slim Aarons, Jerry Ruiz's conception of "Twelfth Night" will transport audiences to a mid-20th century Illyria where jet-setting socialites encounter mistaken identities and gender masquerades, ensuring that no one really knows who they are, or what they want. A shipwrecked Viola disguises herself as Cesario, a page in the service of Duke Orsino. Viola loves Orsino, but Orsino loves Lady Olivia, who in turn falls for "Cesario" when "he" is sent by the Duke to court her. Turning this comic love triangle even further on its side is the reappearance of Viola's twin brother Sebastian, presumed dead after the shipwreck. Add in a fool named Feste and a drunkard named Belch for a fast-paced feast for the senses. (more...)

BWW Review: 18th and Union's Feminist Sketch Comedy HAPPY HOUR Has Potential
by Amelia Reynolds - Feb 3, 2017

Who am I to judge how anyone processes the political climate? Well, when it's theatre, technically, it's my job. Nonetheless, I understand why Keira McDonald and Erin Stewart put on their two-woman sketch comedy, 'Happy Hour', now performing at 18th and Union as a part of their 'Oddballs and Misfits' series (along with 'Oroboro', among others). These two performers set out to process their feelings on the day of the inauguration through impersonations (Kate Mullgrew, Shelley Winters); multiple scenes in doctors' offices with circumstances so ridiculous, you'd hope they'd be satirical; and a rap about Susan B. Anthony. From the clear-as-day reading from a script in the Wings, to the faulty mics, to the rudimentary PowerPoint as background graphics, the collective felt (though full of heart) a little thrown-together. Some sketches outshined others, and although the production felt effortful and honest, 'Happy Hour' felt a touch unpolished. (more...)
