BWW Review: Park Square Theatre Brings Will Eno's Funny, Weird, and Moving Play THE REALISTIC JONESES to Life with a Fantastic Four-Person Cast
by Jill Schafer - Oct 7, 2016

THE REALISTIC JONESES is an odd little play. But I shouldn't be surprised; the other Will Eno play I've seen (THOM PAIN (BASED ON NOTHING) by Loudmouth Collective) is exceedingly odd. But odd in the best way. THE JONESES is a little more, well, realistic, than the one-man show THOM PAIN, with an actual plot and characters in conversation with each other. But I still don't understand everything that happened, and sometimes characters say things that don't make sense, and there's no resolution to the problems the characters are facing. But that's OK. I like theater that doesn't tie things up in a neat bow in the end, that's a little unexpected and even jarring. I'm happy to spend 90 minutes or so in this odd and sometimes uncomfortable world populated by odd and sometimes unlikeable people, beautifully brought to life by this fantastic four-person cast.

by BWW News Desk - Oct 24, 2016

The Grandview Heights High School Theatre Arts Program presents Play On! a comedy by Rick Abbot with direction by April Olt. This is a production where everything goes wrong (Think Noises Off meets Waiting for Guffman!) Welcome to the Dunbar Drama Society. This company is in desperate need of a fund-raiser, so they decide to partner with a new local playwright to present a production that will save their community theatre. Unfortunately, the playwright's constant interference in rehearsals, a cast of "strong personalities", and the over-worked crew, cause the director to have a difficult time keeping the production moving forward. Join us for this hilarious, mad-cap adventure that will keep you laughing from the opening curtain until someone brings down the house!

Angels in America is considered by many to be the seminal play on America at the end of the twentieth century-not the least of which because it features the lawyer Roy Cohn. Cohn, who served as Joseph McCarthy's chief counsel during the Senator's Communist witch hunt that terrorized many in the artistic community and provided the inspiration for Arthur Miller's The Crucible. Cohn also served as the attorney for high-level members of the mafia, and, perhaps most relevant to today's current political environment, worked as Donald Trump's lawyer during the 1970s and 1980s.  (more...)

BWW Review: THE CARTOGRAPHER'S CURSE Brings The Message Home at Riverside Theatres
by Brodie Paparella - Oct 10, 2016

In the modern age of social media, technological advancement in communication, and engineering developments for transport, the ability to connect across borders and boundaries into new countries and cultures is easier than ever. Conversely, forces of xenophobia, warfare and politics have strengthened these invisible divisive lines to give them more potency than before. In Australia, a land that has long been left to its own devices - though not without its own issues of the ripple effects of colonialism and immigration - we cannot always relate to this suffering experienced by war-torn nations caught in the crossfire of occupations and civil conflict. The Cartographer's Curse, the premiere production of the Arabic Theatre Company in partnership with National Theatre of Parramatta, maps out the domestic and public disharmony created by treating nations like playthings to be tug-of-war toyed with between power-hungry empires. It is wonderful to see emerging artists tell these stories to educate us, and done with respect to the ongoing trauma in our own country by inviting an Acknowledgement of Country to commence the performance.
