With a stellar cast and fantastic costumes and sets, 'Beautiful' serves as the perfect escape into a world of fun, music, and sentimentality. It's a lovely show with an empowering message, and you'll walk out ready to turn back around and see it again. Or, at the very least, go home and play the cast album and King's 'Tapestry' on repeat.

'Venus in Fur' is a vivid and wonderful production that taps into themes of gender norms, sexuality, and power, and features a fantastic cast. It's certainly an experience you'll want to indulge in. Seating is extremely limited, but that's part of the charm.

Rock and roll is a cornerstone of American culture - Elvis, Johnny Cash, and Little Richard are all household names across the country.

One of the best parts of seeing a re-imagining of a well-known work is that it enables you to revisit it from a different angle. The new presentation allows you to enjoy the work fresh, and maybe even catch something new that has been lost in familiarity. With apologies to the (British) Bard, Quotidian Theater Company's production proves that A Midsummer Night's Dream is, in fact, an Irish play.
