BWW Reviews: ASSISTED LIVING at ACT Lives Only From Assistance
by Jay Irwin - May 1, 2013

A few days ago I posted a review for another comedy in town where I commented on the fact that they just don't write farces like they used to. And last night the current production at ACT, "Assisted Living" only served to support that statement. That's assuming this World Premiere play from local playwright Katie Forgette was even trying to be a farce. The show, aside from containing a very thin plot and some highly cliche jokes, suffers from an identity crisis as it's not sure what kind of show it wants to be; farce, political commentary, nostalgia piece, etc. But the show does manage some decent moments largely due to the superb cast not to mention borrowing scenes from good plays.

Berkeley Rep to Stage Nina Raine's TRIBES, Begin. 4/11
by BWW News Desk - Mar 11, 2014

Berkeley Repertory Theatre continues the second half of its season with Tribes, a sophisticated and moving family drama by celebrated British playwright Nina Raine. Her profound and powerful new play became an award-winning hit in London and New York. Now renowned director Jonathan Moscone brings it to Berkeley Rep this April for its Bay Area premiere. Tribes follows Billy, a young man who was born deaf into a loquacious and highly opinionated academic family who raised him to lip-read and integrate into the hearing world. When he meets Sylvia - raised by Deaf parents and going deaf herself - Billy decides it's time to speak on his own terms and to be heard. Playing out in words, sign language, and sometimes mesmerizing silence, this penetrating drama examines familial love, notions of belonging, and the intersections of communication. Tribes start previews Friday, April 11, opens on April 16, and closes on Sunday, May 11, 2014. (more...)

Edgar Lee Masters' Classic Drama SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY to Play Stage Coach Theatre, 7/11-26
by BWW News Desk - Jun 16, 2014

In the village of Spoon River, Illinois, those inhabitants now "sleeping, sleeping, on the hill" are given one final opportunity to speak to the living by way of their own epitaphs. In more than 60 characterizations and vignettes, along with fetching ballads and historic popular song, it becomes clear that these townspeople - neighbors, friends, lovers, family members, and even murderers - saw each other very differently. Unhindered by the everyday facades of early 20th-century life, their stories are honest, confident, and free of shame. Discover their secrets, heartaches, and regrets; sympathize with their love and loss; laugh with their foibles and foolish adventures; journey through the history their lives created together. Directed by Joseph Wright. (more...)

BWW Reviews: SPOON RIVER ANTHOLOGY, Not Your Usual Play
by Teresa Rodrick - Jul 17, 2014

An anthology is a collection of stories with a connecting theme-subject, period, style, etc. They usually allow the reader to sample a wide variety of writing styles without committing to a novel. In that vein, Edgar Lee Masters' Spoon River Anthology, allows the audience to sample a variety of stories about the residents of Spoon River. These stories twist and tell the story of the town in a sort of diary form without committing to a central plot about a few characters like you would in a normal play. Add to that the addition of musicians on-stage who play guitar and banjo providing musical interludes for the actors, audiences are treated to a unique experience in a traditional theater setting.
