From childhood, Louisa and Tom Gradgrind were trained to shun emotion, imagination, passion – to put their trust in Cold Hard Facts. Now faced with a loveless marriage and a life devoid of dreams, Louisa has begun to wonder – has something inside her been maimed? In Stephen Jeffreys’ whirlwind adaptation of Dickens’ saga – crowded with eccentric circus performers, shrewd businessmen, cunning widows, and downtrodden workers – we find that even in the darkest industrial landscape, honesty, loyalty, joy, and love abound…and the human heart will not be silenced forever.

BWW Reviews: Theatre22's THE HOURS OF LIFE Lacks Focus, Structure and CoherenceBWW Reviews: Theatre22's THE HOURS OF LIFE Lacks Focus, Structure and Coherence
by Jay Irwin - Dec 8, 2014

Considering the notes in the program say they have been working on Theatre22's World Premiere musical "The Hours of Life" for four years, I can only assume there have been a number of workshops of the piece. But in all that time did no one let the author, Paul Lewis, know that the framework for the show doesn't make sense? And that's just one of the many issues I had with this show that needs so much help I'm not sure it could be worth salvaging. (more...)

by Stephen Hanks - Dec 29, 2014

In my recent very extended assessment of cabaret shows I never reviewed during the second half of 2014, there were two significant omissions. I didn't leave these out of my critical mix because they weren't strikingly significant. In fact, it was just the opposite. The new variety game show, Tune In Time, which dubs itself the “Musical Theater Olympics,” and the musical theater piece/song cycle, New World Waking, were among the most original and entertaining productions I witnessed this year and deserved more of a feature treatment than a quickie review. My take on Tune In Time (which will begin a new monthly run at the York Theatre on January 5) should beat the clock before the next show. So by simple process of elimination, this commentary will be on New World Waking, which when performed on December 6 was one of the highlights of the recent annual 12-day, 20-show Winter Rhythms Festival at Urban Stages.
