Guest Blog: Director Dan Hutton On Topical Play BIG GUNS
by Guest Blog: Dan Hutton - Mar 16, 2017

When I first read Big Guns in the early autumn last year, it felt very much like a play about how political and cultural establishments can create the illusion of threat in order to gain power and control over a population. In the wake of Brexit and the 2015 UK election victory, the way in which two characters summon an imaginary gunman into the room evoked, for me, how those two campaigns played on our fear and insecurities to assert dominance.

BWW Review: PUMP BOYS & DINETTES Serves Up Nostalgia with a Smile
by Carla Maria Verdino-Sllwold - Mar 11, 2017

For those wishing to take a trip back to a simpler era, Biddeford City Theater's production of Pump Boys & Dinettes serves up a wistful, warm slice of nostalgia together with a foot-tapping country musical score that is guaranteed to leave the audience smiling and singing along.

The tunes are vintage country rock, filled with humor, heartache, a longing for the adventures of the road, and the flavors of small town southern life. Anchored by the show's remarkable music director, Kevin Smith, on piano, the seven-person cast sings, dances, and plays their heart out. (more...)
