Latest Boston Reviews

Review: JERKER at The Provincetown Theater Photo Review: JERKER at The Provincetown Theater
by Michael Rabice - August 31, 2022

What at first sounds like an evening of gratuitous nudity for the pleasure of gay men actually turns into quite the opposite. In one of it’s final performances this summer, Robert Chesley’s play JERKER proved to be a perfect fit for The Provincetown  Theater’s mission of presenting previously unsee...
Review: WAITING FOR GODOT at Barrington Stage Company Photo Review: WAITING FOR GODOT at Barrington Stage Company
by Marc Savitt - August 28, 2022

Where most productions paint the duo as downtrodden and rather depressed, here the two main characters are painted with s sense of comedic timing and light-heartedness that almost seems choregraphed. A performance harkening back to some of the greatest comedic duos. The likes of Lewis and Martin, ...
Review: MEASURE FOR MEASURE at Shakespeare & Company Photo Review: MEASURE FOR MEASURE at Shakespeare & Company
by Marc Savitt - August 22, 2022

Each player has moments of strength, weakness, anguish, despair, all presented well individually. I did not, however, feel as if I were watching a cohesive unit, in their element, weaving a tapestry as their lives intertwine. More that of a group of individuals well skilled at delivering Shakespea...
Review: DRACULA at Berkshire Theatre Group Photo Review: DRACULA at Berkshire Theatre Group
by Marc Savitt - August 21, 2022

As is often the case the BTG production is a high-quality production where seemingly everyone involved has played their role and done their work well. There is, however, one aspect I certainly did not expect. Laughter. At several points throughout the three acts in 2-hours, audience members responde...
Review: A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC at Barrington Stage Company Photo Review: A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC at Barrington Stage Company
by Marc Savitt - August 14, 2022

There are a few technical glitches that presented themselves to a keen eye, but virtually something for everyone to like.  Overall, BSC’s production of ALITTLE NIGHT MUSIC represents another triumph for both Barrington Stage and the woman who has steered the company’s successful course for the past...
Review: WE ARE CONTINUOUS at Williamstown Theatre Festival Photo Review: WE ARE CONTINUOUS at Williamstown Theatre Festival
by Marc Savitt - August 07, 2022

Simon and his mother, Ora, have always been close. She’s been his champion, his defender, and his friend. But when a life-changing secret comes to light, can their bond survive? 2020 Foeller Fellow Tyler Thomas directs this exquisitely wrought WTF-commissioned play by Harrison David Rivers that expl...
Review: SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD at Berkshire Theatre Group Photo Review: SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD at Berkshire Theatre Group
by Marc Savitt - August 03, 2022

There is not one single word of spoken dialogue. The driving, exquisitely crafted score is brilliant. It draws you in and in most cases, regardless of who might be performing a given piece, you find yourself caught up in the lyrics feeling as if they could be telling your story or at least a good ...
Review: ANNA IN THE TROPICS at Barrington Stage Company Photo Review: ANNA IN THE TROPICS at Barrington Stage Company
by Marc Savitt - July 24, 2022

ANNA IN THE TROPICS is something like a well curated and presented collection of themes that are both timeless and universal. Coming quite close to the proverbial, perhaps lofty goal of, having something for everyone. One thing we agreed upon is that ANNA IN THE TROPICS is the latest high caliber ...
Review: A BEAUTIFUL NOISE at The Emerson Colonial Theatre Photo Review: A BEAUTIFUL NOISE at The Emerson Colonial Theatre
by Erik Bailey - July 14, 2022

Biographical jukebox musicals are becoming more and more common. They use a singer and/or songwriter’s music to tell that person’s life story. The most recent addition to the cannon is A BEAUTIFUL NOISE: THE NEIL DIAMOND MUSICAL (now playing at the Emerson Colonial Theatre until August 7th). ...
Review: MAN OF GOD at Williamstown Theatre Festival Photo Review: MAN OF GOD at Williamstown Theatre Festival
by Marc Savitt - July 12, 2022

The relevancy to current issues such as Me Too, Feminism, Sexism, Abuse of Power, Patriarchal Systemic Inequality, Masculine Toxicity, My Body – My Rights, See Something – Say Something … abound. Will these dynamic, seemingly “ordinary / normal” young women persist, or give in and conform to the ov...
