BWW Review: THE IRISH...AND HOW THEY GOT THAT WAY at Fulton Theatre
January 26, 2018

Only a week ago, in my review of The Mousetrap, I praised the Fulton in their decision to bring a drama back to the mainstage. I will now 'double-down', and share how much fun it was to attend a musical in their intimate fourth floor theater.

BWW Review: THE MOUSETRAP at Fulton Theatre
January 19, 2018

Agatha Christie's The Mousetrap marks the welcomed return of drama to the Fulton Theater's mainstage. For far too long, the company has produced one big, splashy musical comedy after another. It is good for a theater to have some variety, something different now and then, and The Mousetrap fits the bill.

BWW Review: TRUE WEST at Susquehanna Stage Company
January 14, 2018

Considering it only has four characters and one setting, Sam Shepherd's True West has a lot going on. It is a show about the creative process, sibling rivalry and an exploration of the idea that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. The show is a character study, it has moments of great intensity, and moments of absurd humor. It is a difficult show to pull off, yet Susquehanna Stage Company hits all the right notes.

BWW Review: SOMETHING'S AFOOT at Dutch Apple Dinner Theater
January 12, 2018

There haven't been many popular mystery musicals over the years. I suspect it has something to do with a conflict of genres. Effective mysteries are cerebral. Audience members must perform mental gymnastics in order to outwit the detective. Musicals (with the exception of Sondheim) often prioritize emotions over logic.

BWW Interview: Cast Members of JOSEPH AND THE AMAZING TECHNICOLOR DREAMCOAT at Gettysburg Community Theatre
January 7, 2018

Community, belonging, family-these are three words many people use to describe their experience with community theatre. In the production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat at Gettysburg Community Theatre that sense of family is literal. One family has three generations represented on stage--Pat and Dave Conklin, their daughter and son-in-law Carrie and Greg Trax, and their daughters Tessa and Audrey Trax. Before opening night of Joseph, some of the family members were trying to recall when they started performing. Third grader Audrey Trax traced her stage experience back to when she was three years old. For Audrey and Tessa's grandmother, Pat, the answer was easy, as this performance of Joseph is her debut performance.

BWW Review: THE WIZARD OF OZ at EPAC
December 8, 2017

There's no place like home and there's no place like the Ephrata Performing Arts Center for the holiday season. EPAC sidesteps the glut of 'A Christmas Carol' productions performed at community theaters this time of year, and instead, puts on Decembers shows that are big, fun, and targeted for the entire family.
