BWW Review: 1,600 Words About Why You Should Go See SPAMALOT At Studio Tenn
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 8, 2017

Whether it's seeing Matt Logan as King Arthur galumphing around onstage, as if astride a horse with Garris Wimmer not far behind providing the necessary sound effects with two halves of one empty coconut shell, or watching Jake Speck, as a feckless wannabe Knight of the Round Table, crap his pants anytime he hears a threatening sound or encounters the menacing Black Knight (or anyone else who might say 'boo' to the goose who is Sir Robin), or any other manner of zany characters who find themselves right smack in the middle of the most ridiculous of situations - Monty Python's Spamalot, now in an altogether splendid production from Studio Tenn, will supply you with plenty of laughs and/or the fodder to keep you amusingly sated until the next time you need a good guffaw or two.

BWW Previews: ONE GOOD EGG at Center Stage Theater
by Maggie Yates - May 4, 2017

One Good Egg features a female perspective of the contemporary American experience, especially the complicated relationship between feminine identity and parenthood. Yet, the egg is a broader symbol-one that represents manifestations of fertility beyond pregnancy and childbearing. Gale's intent is to explore the personal and societal imperative to create legacy-whether it be passing on ideas or DNA. One Good Egg invites audiences to accept (and appreciate) the optimism that can flourish in even the most absurd or aching moments. (more...)

BWW Review: SWEET CHARITY at The Village Players Of Birmingham is Fun, Laughs, and a Good Time!
by Katie Laban - May 20, 2017

Well, actually, The Village Players of Birmingham production of Sweet Charity gives the audience more than a few laughs, it keeps them entertained through entire show.

GOOD MORNING, THEATERATI! Down in the right-hand corner of my computer screen, it tells me that its Friday, May 19 - which means that Memorial Day Weekend is just a week away! - how in the world did we make it from New Year's Day to Memorial Day in what seems to me to be like 15 minutes? When you figure that out, please give me a heads-up so I can better prepare for Christmas shopping! And that, of course, has me wondering what shows we'll be seeing during the next holiday season which, in turn, prompts me to ask the musical question: What's your favorite Christmas or holiday-themed stage offering?

BWW Review: BEAU JEST Is Back In Fine Form At Chaffin's Barn
by Jeffrey Ellis - May 12, 2017

Funny and familiar, James Sherman's Beau Jest might well be considered perfect dinner theater fare: spread across two hours, the comedy is easily digested and the players - this time, the estimable ensemble assembled by director Martha Wilkinson for the latest incarnation at Chaffin's Barn Dinner Theatre - charming and likable. The plot remains relevant, even years after it was first produced, and the dialogue flows at an accessible pace, spoken by characters who are altogether believable. And while Beau Jest likely won't push any envelopes or venture outside anyone's pre-conceived creative box, it nonetheless seems current and up-to-date. (more...)

BWW Review: So Good It's Addictive...ACT 1's REEFER MADNESS
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jun 19, 2017

'Over-the-top' and 'larger-than-life' are but two of the descriptive phrases that may be used in reference to both director Jason Lewis and his latest theatrical project Reefer Madness the Musical - and, in both instances, they are equally justified. In all honesty, who else better than he to helm a production of the thoroughly madcap and deliciously campy musical now onstage at Darkhorse Theater through this weekend as the final show of ACT 1's 2016-17 season?

In fact, according to the human member of the duo she hadn't yet turned her key to the on position. (more...)

BWW Review: THE ODD COUPLE at Vagabond Theatre is Full of Wit and Snark
by Kristen Price - Apr 12, 2017

THE ODD COUPLE at the Vagabond Theatre, from start to finish was a pretty perfect production full of misfits and lovable rogues. Felix played by Eric C. Stein and Oscar played by Larry Malkus were standouts, which is good since the entire show rests solely - and comfortably - on their shoulders. Throughout the production, I felt these 2 actors looked so much like and spoke so much like the Oscar and Felix I had imagined when I read the play a few years ago. Each actor was hilarious and completely committed to their own ridiculousness. They even managed to make it look as though they had lived in that New York apartment with 8 rooms their entire adult lives. (more...)
