by Kimberly Moy - Sep 28, 2016

What does an antique store and vampires have in common? Both will give you the creeps. Walking into Carmine Boutique you would probably look over your shoulder several times as you peruse the shop's collection of skulls and taxidermied items. Carmine Boutique is described as an 'antique, oddities, taxidermy shop with an Edwardian fetish club.' That strange feeling is exactly what Jeremy Seghers felt and immediately sparked the inspiration for producing his immersive staging of DRACULA. (more...)

BWW Review: EQUUS at IRISH CLASSICAL THEATRE
by Michael Rabice - Nov 11, 2016

STELLAR CAST DELVES IN DRAMA OF Equus Near perfection. That is what Irish Classical Theatre has achieved in their exciting new production of Peter Shaffer's Equus. Shaffer's poignant and often unsettling drama about a troubled teenager who commits an unspeakable act against horses can be difficult to process and to watch. The story relates how the teen is committed to a mental hospital in order to ascertain what demons lie in his psyche. The psychiatrist Martin Dysart is given the near impossible job of treating him. Director David Oliver has assembled such a fine cast that inarguably I would not consider changing it in any way. (more...)
