BWW Reviews: Thoughtful and Touching MIDDLETOWN at ACT
by Jay Irwin - Sep 6, 2013

We don't live in Grover's Corners anymore and a lot has changed in the century since that time. So it stands to reason that A Slice of Life play like 'Middletown', currently playing at ACT would be a darker and grittier ride than its 'Our Town' predecessor. And while at times it seems like just a series of platitudes on how to live your life, what makes this production what it is are the stirring and heartfelt performances from the ensemble cast.

BWW Reviews: A Slice of Life and Pie at Mary Moody Theatre's BUS STOP
by Jeff Davis - Nov 14, 2012

The 1950s is considered by many to be the pinnacle of American Theater. It was the decade that saw Arthur Miller's THE CRUCIBLE, Tennessee Williams's CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF, and Eugene O'Neill's LONG DAY'S JOURNEY INTO NIGHT. But while Miller, Williams, and O'Neill set the theater world ablaze with highly dramatic pieces featuring unforgettable characters, playwright William Inge took a completely different approach by writing BUS STOP, a simplistic slice-of-life drama about an assembly of strangers and the secrets each of them wish to hide. While it may not be as well-known or as important as the aforementioned pieces by his colleagues, Inge's little play, currently presented at St. Edward's University's Mary Moody Northern Theatre, is at times just as moving.

It's Chicago's Musical, the 'Actors' Musical.' WORKING Really Works!
by Paul W. Thompson - Mar 5, 2011

BWW Reviews: Amanda McBroom Sweeps Into the Cafe Carlyle With a Romantic Valentine to Love Songs and Her Audience
by Stephen Hanks - Feb 3, 2013

It's hard to believe that Amanda McBroom--who many consider to be one of the country's leading cabaret performers--had never played the elegant Cafe Carlyle before the current run of her new show A Valentine Rose. But better late than never because few things could warm the cockles of a romance-craved heart more on a frigid early February evening than McBroom sweeping into the Carlyle and singing songs about the vagaries of love that fit her special definition: 'Like a double expresso--A Slice of Life ground under pressure with a little bit of steam.'
