Infinite Variety Productions Presents CENSORED ON FINAL APPROACH, 8/18-26
by BWW News Desk - Jul 6, 2014

"Censored on Final Approach" is the story of four WASP (Women Air Force Service Pilots), a group of roughly one thousand women hired by the United States Air Force during WWII to fly military aircrafts and tow targets for live anti-aircraft artillery practice, thereby freeing male pilots for combat missions. The women in Ms. Ravel's play are willing to accept any mission for their chance to serve their country, gain the respect of their male counterparts, and experience the thrill of flying. As one of the characters in the play puts it, "The difference between the men here and us? You have to be here, we want to be here." In the face of prejudice from male pilots who respond with constant sabotaging of their planes, these women go to extremes to prove their worth. "Look at us," says one. "We are no longer normal. We take any mission, no matter how dangerous, we are scared to Smile, scared to act like ourselves. Scared that we will lose the chance to fly." When a fellow female pilot crashes, however, the surviving WASPs begin to question their roles and their readiness to risk everything to prove themselves in the cockpit. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Stage Door's ODD COUPLE Brings Nuanced Laughs to Classic Comedy
by Matt Tamanini - Jul 18, 2014

Perhaps no modern play has been so engrained in our country's consciousness over the past five decades as Neil Simon's classic comedy, THE ODD COUPLE. That fact notwithstanding, Stage Door Players' production, running now through August 3rd, still finds new and inventive ways to entertain. The production, directed by Shelly McCook, stars Stage Door's Artistic Director Robert Egizio as uptight Felix Unger, and the Atlanta Lyric Theatre's Associate Artistic Director Alan Kilpatrick as the slovenly Oscar Madison. Oscar takes in his best friend Felix after he is kicked out by his wife, despite the fact that the two have little in common, other than their weekly poker game. (more...)
