BWW Reviews: CPH Examines Greed, Ambition and Misguided Principles in THE LITTLE FOXES
by Roy Berko - Sep 22, 2014

Lillian Hellman, author of 'The Little Foxes,' which is now in production at the Cleveland Playhouse, was a rebel with many causes.

Because of her liberal affiliations she was blacklisted by the House Un-American Activities Committee.

BWW Reviews: DEATH TAX at Lookingglass Theater
by Cara Winter - Sep 22, 2014

Well, almost; it was believed that spiritual information came down from the gods through the actors, who then gave this information to the audience. The audience then gave their collective response, which then was sent back, again through the actors, up to the gods. It was this back-and-forth communication of ideas, feelings, and energy between us and the Great Beyond that gave birth to what we now refer to as 'theater'. (more...)
