BWW Reviews: Anything Goes at Actors Theatre's THE COTTAGE
July 11, 2014

Actor's Theatre's The Cottage is light and enjoyable fare for a hot summer's night. It's silly and predictable stuff, based on a premise that could have as easily come from the mind of Noel Coward but that to be truly great and live up to its hype would have required his writing prowess.

BWW Reviews: Applause for Actors Theatre's THE BOOK CLUB PLAY
June 23, 2014

No doubt about it. The Book Club Play, written by Karen Zacarias and masterfully directed by Matthew Weiner, is an audience's delight and a tribute to the latter's commitment to socially relevant and provocative theatre. The ensemble is as good as it gets ~ a dream cast of dynamic and energetic actors who give fine definition to their roles. However, if there is a fault, it lies not in the stars but in the playwright whose message about culture and relationships gets diluted in this comedy of manners and cross-cutting themes.

BWW Reviews: PETER PAN is Flying High at Valley Youth Theatre
June 16, 2014

Valley Youth Theatre rounds out its 25th Anniversary with a spirited and hugely entertaining production of Peter Pan. From the robust overture to the rousing finale, these young actors from six to sixteen give their energetic all in a Broadway-worthy show about the boy who never grows up.

BWW Reviews: Humanity Exposed in Theatre Artists Studio's NEW SUMMER SHORTS
June 14, 2014

Imagine a world without music or dance. Walk in the shoes of war veterans who cope in singular ways with their demons. Feel for the husband who can't get a word in edge-wise between two prototypical controllers, his wife and a doctor. Contemplate government-regulated dinners. Feel for the wife who fears for her life and takes necessary measures. Occupy the assassin's psyche before the lethal act. It's this thread of foibles, follies, fears, and fancies that weaves through the eight ten-minute plays currently featured in Theatre Artists Studio's 7th Annual New Summer Shorts Festival.

BWW Reviews: STEEL MAGNOLIAS Bloom at Stagebrush Theatre
June 9, 2014

Steel Magnolias is at heart a play about beauty, not the cosmetic kind that stylists manufacture with gels and lotions and sprays but the kind that tells in the truth lines on a woman's face, in the soul that she bares in private and safe moments with friends. The telling of the tale requires skilled and authentic performances by actresses that can reveal the shades and textures of joy and pain and faith and the will to endure no matter what hand life deals. In Stagebrush Theatre's current production of Robert Harling's play, directed by Judy Rollings, six remarkable actresses grace the stage and deliver the goods.

BWW Reviews: THE FULL MONTY Lifts the Spirits at Mesa Encore Theatre
June 2, 2014

Men of steel, stripped of their power, can regain their mettle when they dare to drop their fears and self-doubt. The Full Monty affirms this truth and reveals more than bare bottoms in Mesa Encore Theatre's final production of its 76th season. Director Chris Hamby, despite some technical glitches that should be easily fixed and some inconsistent casting that can't, captures both the heart and humor of a story that has as much relevance today as when it premiered in 2000.

May 27, 2014
