BWW Review: Opulent AMADEUS Revival Fancies Up South Coast Rep Stage
by Michael L. Quintos - May 23, 2016

To close out its current season, Orange County's Tony-winning regional theater South Coast Repertory has chosen to mount an opulent, high-caliber revival of Peter Shaffer's 1979 play AMADEUS, which continues performances in Costa Mesa through June 5, 2016. The recipient of the 1981 Tony Award for Best Play, AMADEUS most notably became the basis for Milos Forman's Academy Award-winning (and, yes, arguably, much more readily known) 1984 film of the same name. For SCR's season-ender---engagingly directed by Kent Nicholson---the rather lengthy play is presented with much of the visual grandness one expects from an antiquated period piece, particularly from this particular theater company. And as an added bonus, the play is performed by a cast of incredible, seasoned actors that winningly transports its audience to a time and place centuries ago. So is it worth revisiting the tug-of-war between Salieri and Mozart? If it is South Coast Rep's visually-stunning production, then the answer is an enthusiastic 'yes.' (more...)

BWW Blog: Amanda Bohlmann - Putting Together a Show on a Small Stage
by Guest Blogger: Amanda Bohlmann - May 20, 2016

When deciding on what show to do for each semester, our theater group gets together to discuss possibilities to run by our director. Our director threw Sweeney Todd out as an option but we all knew it was going to be a challenge. One of the biggest things we have to take into consideration when choosing a show every year is our very tiny stage. Our theater has a little over 100 seats but has the smallest little stage. We also have to squeeze our orchestra on the stage right corner of the stage because there is no other place to put them! Visioning sets on that stage always is difficult to start but with the help of our amazing crew, we manage to pull it off every year.  (more...)
