Review: BORN WITH TEETH at Santa Fe Playhouse
by Jackie Camborde - March 28, 2024


Ever wonder what happened when two rivals, in this case, rising star of the theatrical world William Shakespeare and biggest playwright of the age thus far Christopher Marlowe, collaborated on the writing of Henry VI? Marlowe was officially credited as co-author of the three-play cycle in 2016. Born With Teeth, now playing at Santa Playhouse, creates the scenario of the two authors meeting in secret to pen the trilogy. Along the way, flirtation, fights and much wordplay ensues.

Review: OR, BY LIZ DUFFY ADAMS at Santa Fe Playhouse

Review: INTO THE WOODS at Musical Theatre Southwest
by Jackie Camborde - March 06, 2024


When I heard that MTS was doing Into the Woods, my first thought was “Wow – that’s ……ambitious.” Sondheim is always ambitious, but MTS was able to hit Sweeney Todd out of the park last year, so why did Into the Woods feel like such a giant leap forward for this creative and stalwart community theater?
