Reminiscent of Rent and Spring Awakening as issues of social acceptance, sexual identity, questioning of religion and adults, experimentation with illegal substances, and raging hormones are all explored in this 'pop opera'.

At the center of this tale, set in a Catholic boarding school are altar boy Peter who is in love with his roommate Jason, one of the most popular kids in school. Carrying on a closeted romance, Peter wants to go public with their affair, at least to his mother, whom he loves dearly. Jason isn't so keen on the idea, as he feels that his entire world would crumble if word of the relationship got out. Things get more complicated when classmate Ivy makes a play for Jason. Her rejected suitor Matt discovers the secret that Peter and Jason have been keeping and it's only a matter of time before things start to spin out of control. As they struggle to come to terms with who they are, and who the world thinks they should be, they seek answers from their Church, their friends, and ultimately, from within themselves. Performed at the Bingham Theatre at Actors Theatre.

BWW Review: Transatlantic Love Affair's Remount of the Ivey-Winning BALLAD OF THE PALE FISHERMAN is a Simple Story Beautifully Told
by Jill Schafer - Jun 8, 2016

Devised physical theater company Transatlantic Love Affair won an Ivey in 2012 for BALLAD OF THE PALE FISHERMAN, an original work based on the legend of the selkie, a seal who takes human form. I did not see that production, having only 'discovered' TLA shortly before their Ivey win through their Fringe show ASH LAND. I saw it at the final 'audience pick' show because it was the talk of the festival that year. Seeing TLA for the first time was one of the most moving theater experiences I've had, and I haven't missed a show since. I'm thrilled they're bringing back BALLAD OF THE PALE FISHERMAN as part of the Southern's ARTshare program. Seeing it last night, it's obvious why it won the Ivey. No one casts a spell like Transatlantic Love Affair, as they tell a story and create an entire world with nothing but their bodies, voices, and souls. BALLAD OF THE PALE FISHERMAN is an achingly beautiful and completely engrossing 75 minutes of storytelling. (more...)

"Everyone who just got out is really happy, and another group is getting ready to come in," Robin said to me. Robin is tall, and thin, with enormous blue eyes and a head full of curls. I was sitting on a small couch in a third floor recording studio in a gorgeous home, owned by my new friends, Phil and Marie, on the Isle of Man. I was also sweating-my bath water had previously been very hot,  and I nodded, while sipping a giant mason jar of water and wearing a big, plush white robe given to me by Robin's mother.  (more...)

CK Theatre's Main Stage Presents ALL SHOOK UP This Summer
by Louisa Brady - Jun 4, 2016

It's summer 1955. In the middle of a square state ... ln the middle of a square decade ... ln a square little town ... Natalie pumps gas at her father's filling station and dreams of riding off on her motorbike to find the man who will change her life. Who is not Dennis, her best friend and secret admirer. Unable to tell Natalie his true feelings, Dennis heads to Sylvia's Honky-Tonk, where the townsfolk, black and white, gather to lament the grayness of their lives. Suddenly, the sound of a motorcycle cuts through the air, as Chad, a mysterious (Elvis like) stranger, appears on the horizon. When Chad stops in town to get his bike fixed, Natalie is immediately smitten. Sizing up the dreariness of the town, Chad electrifies and transforms a broken-down jukebox with a wave of his Bare hands, infecting everyone with the rebellious spirit of rock and roll music. Horrified by the wild celebration, prim and proper Mayor Matilda Hyde arrives on the scene to restore order. Everybody in town is in the grip of something powerful and new. All Shook Up is a musical comedy built around the songs made famous by Elvis Presley. Among the 24 songs featured in the score are classics like 'Heartbreak Hotel,' 'Love Me Tender,' 'Don't Be Cruel,' 'Can't Help Falling in Love,' and of course the title tune.  (more...)

BWW Review: THE THRUSH AND THE WOODPECKER at Kitchen Dog Theater
by Aaron Zilbermann - Jun 15, 2016

18.1% of adults in the United States are suffering with a diagnosed mental illness. This number does not include substance abuse and it's even higher for women: 21.8%. With these statistics, it's easy to see why so many contemplate how these illnesses might play out in the daily lives of those who are ill, and particularly in the lives of loved ones. The Thrush and the Woodpecker, a play by Steve Yockey and produced by Kitchen Dog Theater in residence at The Undermain Theatre, explores this reality on a deeply personal level as the two primary characters, Brenda Hendricks and Roisin Danner, confront each other with conflicting and often warped realities.

BWW Review: A MAN WITH FIVE CHILDREN at Eternity Playhouse
by Brodie Paparella - Jun 11, 2016

There is no legend, living or dead, whose art hasn't been compromised in some way by fame. Those built to last are often those who turn their creative lens onto fame itself, exorcising their demons and their reputation in pursuit of true expression. Many in the Australian theatre scene believe homegrown and widely acclaimed playwright Nick Enright was built so, and if not for his death in 2003, A Man with Five Children would be far from his final comment on fame, relationships and the Australian lower-class. Nonetheless, entering into that Bare stage, lone camera and scattered chairs at Eternity Playhouse, the tragedy of Enright's passing and of the impending narrative was acute. (more...)
