BWW Reviews: Albee's GOAT a Knockout at LGBTBWW Reviews: Albee's GOAT a Knockout at LGBT
by Don Grigware - Sep 29, 2014

Nothing like an idyllic family portrait (at left): father Martin (Paul Witten), mother Stevie (Ann Noble), son Billy (Spencer Morrissey) and close family friend Ross (Matt Kirkwood). They are what one might call perfect. They have everything and adore one another. Martin is a prize-winning architect, Stevie is his loyal, devoted mate, Billy, although a teenager and gay, is a good kid, who is encouraged by his parents to be who he is and to embrace it. Ross, a TV interviewer, is about to interview Martin about his recent award and turning 50, when the taping is botched by Martin's sudden inability to remember anything or to put a few words together intelligibly. He has a problem and who should he turn to but his best friend Ross. When Martin confides that he is having an 'affair' of sorts, Ross is shocked not only by the fact that Martin has always been completely faithful to Stevie, but by the new object of his affection. Martin is in love with a goat named Sylvia. (more...)

On September 18, 2015 the Tony Award Prize-winning drama of 1963, 2005 and 2012, Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf, opens at Lakeland Community College's Rodehorst Performing Arts Center. Initially selected for the 1963 Pulitzer Prize for Drama by the Pulitzer's advisory board, later- the trustees of Columbia University - objected to the play's then-controversial use of profanity and sexual themes, and overruled the award's advisory committee, awarding no Pulitzer Prize for drama in 1963. Featuring Gregory Violand (AEA) as George and Molly McGinnis (AEA) as Martha, Lakeland's production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf will be the first professional production in many years. The roles of Nick and Honey feature Dan Simpson and Katie Nabors. Woolf is directed by Martin Friedman, with sets and lights by Kristin Williams, costumes by Jordan Cooper and sound design by Eric Simna. (more...)
