BWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Dusts Off TINTYPESBWW Reviews: Theatre Memphis Dusts Off TINTYPES
by Joseph Baker - Nov 6, 2014

The songs were rendered by a small but talented ensemble, and I so enjoyed it that I returned more than once - basically, because I wanted to treat friends who I knew would appreciate it as much as I did. With Theatre Memphis' TINTYPES, conceived by Mary Kyte with Mel Marvin and Gary Pearle, and charmingly directed (often with a 'knowing wink') by Kell Christie, I may just have to contact those friends once again.
