Johanna Gruenhut Readies Everyman Theatre's Female-Led SALON SERIES
by Kristen Price - February 02, 2018

Theatre has always been a lens through which to view the current world. Productions such as RENT, illuminated issues like the AIDS crisis in ways that hadn't been seen before on a stage. Audiences confronted these issues in a very real way, and one would hope that they learned and grew from the expe...

Kristen Blodgette Readies the Music of LOVE NEVER DIES at the Hippodrome
by Kristen Price - September 27, 2017

The very first show I saw on Broadway was Andrew Lloyd Webber's THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. To say that I was in awe would be an understatement.

BWW Reviews: It's a Wonderful IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE at Center Stage
by Jack L. B. Gohn - November 28, 2014

At the end, the audience for this show is pulled not merely into the studio but into Bedford Falls, as the stage snow falls not only on the characters in the story set there but on the performers in the studio and on the audience as well. It is a perfectly magical double fourth-wall violation. Indee...

BWW Reviews: Poetic, Exotic, Amoral, and Fascinating: Oscar Wilde's SALOME at SCENA
by Jack L. B. Gohn - July 19, 2013

This is poetry, poetry for the mind to sink into and be overwhelmed. To paraphrase Mae West, goodness has nothing to do with it. Nor does badness. It comes from some amoral place in Wilde's psyche and appeals to that place in ours....

BWW Reviews: Of Dual Citizenship and Pulled Rugs: MODERN TERRORISM at CATF
by Jack L. B. Gohn - July 11, 2013

All of them, then, have one foot in Muslim culture and one in the Western culture Muslim terrorists affect to despise, and that is part of the point author Jon Kern is making about them. Whether they like it or not, they are dual citizens. What enrages them is also a part of them, and it means that ...

BWW Reviews: Sanctified Skullduggery - INCORRUPTIBLE at UMBC

Shall We Dance and Think About Privilege and Race? THE KING AND I at Toby's
by Jack L. B. Gohn - January 24, 2012

One Flea Spare: An Honorable Defeat at the Strand
by Jack L. B. Gohn - April 25, 2011

I like a theater of ideas as much as the next reviewer, but found that, in this somewhat trackless waste of a play, the ideas were either inarticulately expressed, trite, or both. The Strand Theater Company, dedicated to providing opportunities for female artists, writers, designers and directors, ...
