Lewis Black's ONE SLIGHT HITCH Coming to The Human Race Theatre, 4/8
by BWW News Desk - Mar 28, 2016

Spring has sprung and while love is in the air at The Human Race, April showers loom for the characters of the theatre company's latest production, One Slight Hitch. Life in suburban Cincinnati is good for Doc and Delia Coleman on the morning they're about to throw their eldest daughter the perfect wedding they never had, that is until her vagabond exboyfriend arrives on their doorstep and turns their best laid plans into total chaos.

Will their daughter make it down the aisle or will the day end up a perfect disaster? The production at The Human Race's downtown Dayton home at The Loft Theatre is directed by Margarett Perry and features actors Brian Dykstra and Rita Rehn, with Dana Berger, Alex Curtis, Cecily Dowd, Kyle Nunn and Alex Sunderhaus.

BWW Review: A SHINING ATTRIBUTE – Short and Sassy
by Frank Benge - Feb 23, 2016

A SHINING ATTRIBUTE by Candyce Rusk is a one act, solo work that tells the story of Bijou, a spirit that haunts a former burlesque house in Boston's Combat Zone.

In the early 70's the suggestively blue entertainment that was burlesque became less tease and more blunt nudity. A SHINING ATTRIBUTE explores the life and loves of Bijou, one of the denizens of The Combat Zone. This is a look at her downward slide through her final abusive yet oddly loving romance when she consorted with Greek mob boss Black Jack for her survival. (more...)
