BWW Reviews: CHARLEY'S AUNT Plagued by Pacing Problems
by Frank Benge - Mar 24, 2015

By definition, a farce is a light theatrical work in which highly improbable plot situations, exaggerated characters, and slapstick are used for humorous effect. Brandon Thomas's play Charley's Aunt (1892) is a classic example of farce. Farce requires a certain level of comic timing. In farce, the humor comes from rapid speech and rapid movement… people running into and out of rooms at breakneck speed and managing to cause havoc in the process. An example of this style done to perfection was the BBC series FAWLTY TOWERS. Another meaning for the word farce is a seasoned stuffing, as for roasted turkey. (more...)

Georgia Ensemble Theatre to Present CHARLEY'S AUNT
by BWW News Desk - Jan 6, 2016

Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), North Fulton's only professional theatre company, will kick off the New Year with a play that's sure to be the cure for the post-holiday doldrums. The hilarious comedy, Charley's Aunt, will take the stage January 7th through the 24th, 2016 at the Theatre's home, the Roswell Cultural Arts Center, 950 Forrest Street, Roswell, GA. GET and Atlanta favorite David Crowe is in the directing chair to bring this time-tested comedy by Brandon Thomas to life. Says Crowe, 'At its heart Charley's Aunt is a very silly play about the very serious business of courtship. That's one of the reasons the play has been produced so much in the past hundred or so years. Falling in love sometimes requires us to bend and even break society's rules in order to live happily ever after.' This production is graciously sponsored by the Robert W. Hagan Family Foundation.

CINDERELLA AT 70 is Released
by BWW News Desk - Jan 14, 2015

Cinderella is alive and well in 2015. Prince Charming having divorced her for a trophy wife, she's teamed up with a new 70-year-old BFF as her mentor and author. She's learning about online dating, sex, boob jobs, botox, technology, the Millenia generation - and, of course, men. She can make a great martini - shaken, not stirred - and she's using her 2,000 years of experience to add a new dimension to everyone who meets her. Our favorite princess is delightful, funny, and promises to become your BFF too. The original idea for 'Cinderella at 70' was born when three women in their 60s spent a weekend together in Los Angeles, Treacy says. 'Sex and the City was hot,' she says. 'Over cosmos one evening, someone asked, 'Where do you think these women will be 30 years from now?' For the rest of the evening, happily inebriated, we continued to hypothesize. Would Carrie and Big have children? Would Miranda choose her career or life in Brooklyn? What would happen to Samantha and James? Would debutante Charlotte find happiness with her Jewish husband? It's taken 10 years from that night for Cinderella to evolve, but now we're both looking forward to the spotlight, the red carpet, and sharing our adventures with the world.' Toni Demarco, whose best seller Heartgasm, Increasing Intimacy and Ecstacy with Your Beloved was endorsed by Larry King, says 'Cinderella at 70' is a blissful read that took me on a journey and did not set me down until the final page.' Having already completed several pre-media buzz appearances in Las Vegas and Palm Springs, Treacy says, 'The stage is set for a roll out of 'Cinderella at 70' with many book readings, book signings, and media appearances lined up in 2015.' Request for review copies of the book can be secured at Beyond Publishing.net 702.623.2040. About Jane Friedlander Treacy Jane Friedlander Treacy is a native of Brooklyn, New York and a graduate of Barnard College and Columbia University. At the age of 15, she began her theatrical career working in off-Broadway theatres. At 20, she produced her first off-Broadway show, the hit revival of 'Anything Goes,' starring Hal Linden.

Georgia Ensemble Theatre (GET), North Fulton's only professional theatre company, will honor the late Peter M. Abreu with a memorial plaque at the Roswell Cultural Arts Center lobby on Thursday, January 7th at 7:15pm. A major contributor and friend to the Theatre, it was through the May P. and Francis L. Abreu Charitable Trust and The City of Roswell that the Arts Center has recently gone through a complete and ambitious acoustical renovation. By putting up the initial funding, Peter's legacy motivated the City of Roswell to then match that investment, and the plan to upgrade acoustics was put into place. The project was finished in time for GET's upcoming production of Charley's Aunt. (more...)
