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: SWEENEY TODD at Ephrata Performing Arts Center
October 28, 2017

Sean Young and Bobbi Bear play Sweeney Todd and his partner in crime, Mrs Lovett. Young's singing and speaking voice has a clear deep register that is especially adept in expressing menace. Bear's voice and demeanor is complimentary with a more energetic, bubbly quality. The pair have good chemistry together.

Take It or Leave It, But Don't Try to Change It

When was the last time you rented a car? Did Hertz immediately swap keys for your credit card, no questions asked? I doubt it. Instead, I bet you had to first initial and sign a substantial amount of paperwork.

BWW Review: DOUBT at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center
September 8, 2017

A long time ago, my drama professor told me that 'the surest sign of a good play is that you leave the theater thinking about something other than where you parked your car'. This particular quote nicely summarizes the strengths of Doubt, playing through September 16th at the Ephrata Performing Arts Center.
