BWW Review:  Theatre Memphis Plays 'Cats and Mouse' With WAIT UNTIL DARKBWW Review: Theatre Memphis Plays 'Cats and Mouse' With WAIT UNTIL DARK
by Joseph Baker - Oct 19, 2015

The set alone is testament as to why Theatre Memphis invariably is recognized during awards season for its designers -- two dominant windows admitting shifts in light as darkness falls, steps descending into a blind woman's apartment (steps on which menacing characters will align themselves as they focus on their sightless victim), a refrigerator that will become a hiding place, a source of danger, and a shield of protection. Frederick Knott's chiller (adapted by Jeffrey Hatcher and suspensefully helmed by Director Tracey Zerwig Ford) is a tense and understated October alternative to the bucket of blood drenching poor CARRIE just across town at Circuit Playhouse.

BWW Review: Public Theatre Opens with Finely Tuned WAIT UNTIL DARKBWW Review: Public Theatre Opens with Finely Tuned WAIT UNTIL DARK
by Carla Maria Verdino-SŁllwold - Oct 19, 2015

Lewiston's Public Theatre opened its twenty-fifth season with a finely tuned, engrossing production of Frederick Knott's classic thriller, Wait Until Dark. Presented in a well-crafted adaptation by Jeffrey Hatcher which moves the action to the film noir world of the 1940s and directed by Janet Mitchko, this six-character drama retains all the spine-tingling creepiness of both the film and original stage versions.

Bww Review: FAC's WAIT UNTIL DARK an Engrossing ThrillerBww Review: FAC's WAIT UNTIL DARK an Engrossing Thriller
by Christi Esterle - Oct 18, 2015

Vampires, slasher killers, and paranormal activity are all well and good, but for my money nothing beats the chills of a good suspense story. Uncertainty and the fear of the unknown are immensely engrossing narrative devices, compelling you to follow along even as you dread what might come next. So Wait Until Dark is, for me, the ideal Halloween experience: a tense, unsettling thriller rooted in relatable fears and all-too-human monsters. (more...)

HAMILTON proves that ethnically and culturally diverse casts can produce smash hits. However, before the performing arts community can pat herself on the back for being so accepting, she should turn her head to the right. All too often, inclusive theater excludes theater artists with disabilities. Dionysus Theatre founding artistic director Deborah Nowinski has spent decades pushing back against the mixture of prejudice and apathy that makes this so. Below, Nowinksi talks with BroadwayWorld about a most recent effort-her guidebook for educators and instructors seeking to create ability diverse casts- 'Your Role in Inclusion Theatre' and much, much more.
