Fratellanza to Bring THE MUTE QUIRE to Ireland and China
by BWW News Desk - Jul 6, 2014

The Mute Quire, a theater piece created by Fratellanza, premiered in Michigan to critical acclaim and sold-out houses in 2012. Fratellanza has rewritten The Mute Quire and, as an international ensemble from America, China and Italy, has been chosen to perform it at the Galway and Macau Fringe Festivals. The baffling but true events surrounding the printing of Shakespeare's First Folio, are told in afreewheeling story of a blind printer, his illiterate apprentice, and a buffoonish actor from the King's Men.

by Joseph Baker - Jul 13, 2014

Amy Herzog's family drama (albeit a drama with a number of very funny moments) 4000 MILES is unobtrusively generating a thoughtful, low-key alternative to the outsized HAIRSPRAY (already a sellout at 'Big Sister' Playhouse on the Square just a block or so away); and it's a safe bet that a number of theatre-going Memphians are already trekking south to DeSoto Family Theatre's epic presentation of LES MISERABLES. However, this intelligent, intimate little piece is currently providing a rewarding alternative at Theatre Works, quietly nestled across from the parking garage at Overton Square. (more...)
