BWW Review: CentreStage's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE - And Just What Would Ibsen Write About Flint, Michigan?BWW Review: CentreStage's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE - And Just What Would Ibsen Write About Flint, Michigan?
by Joseph Baker - May 2, 2016

As the curtain prepares to close on the theatre season in Memphis, 'tried and true' standards -- A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE at Germantown Community Theatre and HAY FEVER at Theatre Memphis -- are competing stage to stage with powerhouse musicals -- MEMPHIS THE MUSICAL at Playhouse on the Square. Easy to overlook is CentreStage Theatre's 'small scale' but timely production of Henrik Ibsen's AN ENEMY OF THE PEOPLE, staged at the Evergreen Theatre. While the intimate confines of that particular venue necessarily limit the production values that might be found elsewhere, the themes and surprising ironic twists, as well as the commitment of Director Marler Stone and his ensemble, are as relevant and riveting as an audience might wish -- Just how much 'truth' should be shared with the public? When funds go 'head to head' with environmental and health concerns, which will out? When democracy is allowed to go 'full steam ahead,' are there inherent dangers? Frankly, the play -- written decades ago -- reminds me how far ahead of his time Ibsen was as a writer. (more...)

by BWW News Desk - Mar 10, 2016

An amazing and liberating story told by the most credible and unprejudiced source, the attorney who has successfully obtained a $28 million jury verdict in one of the highest awards in a sexual abuse case. The Whole Truth exposes the breadth of the media's bias against the Catholic Church using the child sexual abuse dilemma in society as the launching point. There is no statistical evidence that shows more abuse occurred in the Catholic Church than in any other institution or organization. The problem is similarly present across all religions, organizations or nationalities, yet the Catholic Church seems to get an inordinate amount of press on the issue.  (more...)

The 1970's was an era of self discovery, rebellion and personal exploration. Broadway was morphing from the stock musical comedy formula towards the darker issues of life not usually seen on the musical stage . There was a young Stephen Sondheim delving into the deep interpersonal relations of marriage in COMPANY and FOLLIES, while Michael Bennett had gathered a group of young dancers who were exposing their inner demons and life stories in A CHORUS LINE. Meanwhile the composer Stephen Schwartz began his career with PIPPIN and would later write hit scores for GODSPELL and WICKED (more...)

While Harmon's play does revolve around several characters vying for a relic from their recently deceased grandfather, the play is actually not about what makes someone a 'Bad' Jew, but more broadly, what makes someone a bad person.
