BWW Reviews: Loudmouth Collective Closes their Third Season with A BRIGHT NEW BOISE, Another Smart, Intense, Funny, Beautifully Acted and Directed Play
(1/19/2015) - Loudmouth Collective is closing their third season with another show that is firmly in their wheelhouse of smart, deep, intense, often funny, always thought-provoking, small cast, beautifully directed and acted plays. I've been with them since the beginning, when the surprisingly sweet and touching GRUESOME PLAYGROUND INJURIES landed on my favorites list that year. Since then they've done a couple of stellar one-man shows, an absurd comedy, and a Fringe show about talking cats. A BRIGHT NEW BOISE fits in well with that group of plays and helps to further define Loudmouth's point of view, one that's definitely worth paying attention to. It's a beautifully complex play, at times funny, at times utterly devastating, and completely engrossing. I know it's only mid-January, but this is by far the best thing I've seen so far this year.
New Stage Version of THE MOST DANGEROUS GAME Debuts at Bedlam Lowertown, Now thru 1/17
(1/14/2015) - St. Paul native, Joey Hamburger, has teamed up with his best friend Michael Hugh Torsch to recreate The Most Dangerous Game, the classic suspense story of the hunter becoming the prey, as a fast-paced comedy to play in St. Paul's newest theater venue: Bedlam Lowertown. Set in the black & white world of the 1932 film along with a live music score, this loud, fast, and uninhibited new stage production promises to be the perfect antidote to post-holiday doldrums. Also, there's beer!
BWW Reviews: 2 SUGARS, ROOM FOR CREAM is a Hilarious, Poignant, and Relatable Look at Life, Friendship, and Coffee
(1/12/2015) - Next Sunday, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler, two of the funniest women in America, will host the Golden Globes. Until then, we have Shanan Custer and Carolyn Pool, two of the funniest women in the Twin Cities, presiding over a delightful evening of comedy, friendship, and coffee. Their 2008 Fringe hit 2 SUGARS, ROOM FOR CREAM has gone through many incarnations, won an Ivey Award, and has now landed on Park Square Theatre's new Andy Boss thrust stage. Even though this is the third time I've seen it and many of the scenes and characters are familiar to me, it still makes me laugh until I cry, and marvel at the universality of life experiences, and the thing that binds us all together - coffee. From bad church basement coffee to the gourmet stuff at fancy coffee shops, it's a running theme in many of our lives and helps us get through the day, and the long cold winter. This show is a celebration of that, but more so a celebration of friendship and laughter.
