BWW Review: Dare to Defy's THE WHO'S TOMMY Rocks at the Mathile BWW Review: Dare to Defy's THE WHO'S TOMMY Rocks at the Mathile
by Jenni Cypher on January 19, 2018 in Dayton

Going into the Mathile Theatre on Saturday night, I wasn't exactly sure what to expect. I am not overly familiar with The Who's music but I do remember that my older brother had a copy of the Tommy album back in the 70's.

The Human Race Theatre Company Heats Up The Miami Valley with SEX WITH STRANGERS The Human Race Theatre Company Heats Up The Miami Valley with SEX WITH STRANGERS
by BWW News Desk on January 16, 2018 in Dayton

This February, The Human Race Theatre Company (HRTC) is heating up the Loft Theatre with the hottest play in the country, Sex with Strangers.

As a weekend tryst develops into a long-term romance, their personal and professional lives collide. Ethan seeks legitimacy, dismissing his bad boy reputation as nothing more than an invented character. Olivia has her doubts, but craves the literary fame Ethan can offer her. Ambition, identity and trust are in play when online personals clash with real world expectations in this smart, steamy take on modern love. (more...)
