BWW Reviews: A Split Decision for Soulpepper's TWELVE ANGRY MEN
by Catherine Kustanczy - Jun 18, 2014

The celebrated 1957 film 12 Angry Men is a drama that began its life on television as part of a CBS series, Studio One, where it premiered in 1954.

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.
