BWW Reviews: Biting Wit in VAMPIRE LESBIANS OF SODOM Review BWW Reviews: Biting Wit in VAMPIRE LESBIANS OF SODOM
by Desiree Fantal - November 03, 2014

Under the direction of David Jenkins, Busch's campy brand of depravity was perfectly executed on Jobsite's set. Brian Smallheer's minimalistic set design engages the eye just enough, while allowing the players to retain the audience's attention. (more...)

BWW Review: Fringe Favorite SEASONS Brings New Work Excitement to Florida Tour Review BWW Review: Fringe Favorite SEASONS Brings New Work Excitement to Florida Tour
by Matt Tamanini - October 06, 2014

There is something exhilarating about sitting in the audience watching a new work that you think could eventually become something special. More so than any other artistic medium, pieces of musical theatre require extensive gestation periods, sometimes with years numbering in the decades. So to see a musical, somewhat early on in that process, presents an exciting opportunity to be a part of its growth. Such was the case when I saw SEASONS at Orlando Shakespeare's Mandell Theatre, which is in the midst of a state-wide tour. (more...)

INVENTING VAN GOGH is a beautifully written and acted time-skipping love letter to art history, an accurate examination of the struggles each artist (not just Van Gogh) faces in the creation of something new, and a mystery in a world that has a hard time telling the difference between what is genuine and what is imagination. (more...)

Definitely see "Church Basement Ladies" and this incredible new space. ...the outstanding performances, character bonding and the truths of these four women will resonate. The sold-out audience was enthralled the night I went, appreciative at seeing professional performers shining on a brand new stage. As for the Jimmy Ferraro Studio Theatre, it looks like it will be a New Port Richey touchstone for a long time to come. And with that, we all would like to say to Mr. Ferraro as well as to the cast and crew of "Church Basement Ladies": Welcome home! (more...)
