BWW Previews: DE THEATRE CO SEASON at Delaware Theatre Company

THE HOUND OF THE BASKERVILLES September 11 29

Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's most beloved Sherlock Holmes story gets a makeover in an exhilarating collision of slapstick, absurdity, and silliness. Zany and fast-paced, The Hound of the Baskervilles offers farcical surprises and brilliant theatrical invention performed by a trio of endearing clowns and klutzes. Adapted by Steven Canny and John Nicholson for three actors, this barkingly hilarious spoof leaves audiences dying from laughter.

ONE NOVEMBER YANKEE October 23 - November 10

Hollywood stars come to Wilmington! Starring L.A. Law's Harry Hamlin and Hart to Hart's Stephanie Powers, One November Yankee will send audiences soaring to great heights. One plane, two actors, and three intricately interwoven stories. Joshua Ravetch's new play explores human connection brought on by tragedy in the aftermath of a plane crash that ripples across the lives of our characters. The Los Angeles Times calls One November Yankee a "haunting and poetic" flight that "unfolds like theatrical origami."

A CHRISTMAS CAROL December 4 - 29

A holiday story and tradition unlike any other returns. Gather your loved ones around the holidays and come see Ebenezer Scrooge at it again in this bold take on a holiday classic. Using nothing more than props, puppets, fresh physicality, and the power of imagination, five actors bring some of Dickens' most beloved characters to life right before your eyes. Don't be left out in the cold for this timeless tale with a fresh twist!

OUTSIDE MULLINGAR February 12 - March 1

From the author of Doubt comes a romantic comedy set in rural Ireland. Anthony and Rosemary are lovelorn farmers who haven't got a clue when it comes to love. These hopeless singletons will need to overcome a bitter land feud, familial rivalries and their own romantic fears to find happiness. Full of dark humor and poetic prose, John Patrick Shanley's tenderhearted portrait reminds us it's never too late to take a chance on love.

MILLION DOLLAR QUARTET April 5 - May 10

This worldwide smash-hit musical is inspired by the famed recording session that brought together rock 'n' roll icons Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins for the first and only time. In December 1956, these four young musicians gathered at Sun Records in Memphis for what would be one of the greatest jam sessions ever. Million Dollar Quartet brings that legendary night to life with a treasure trove of the greatest standards of the 1950s including "Blue Suede Shoes," "Fever," "Great Balls of Fire," "Walk the Line," and "Hound Dog." On this unforgettable night in rock and roll history, don't miss your chance to be a fly on the wall.

Review: HERE YOU COME AGAIN at Delaware Theatre CompanyReview: HERE YOU COME AGAIN at Delaware Theatre Company
September 23, 2022

Perhaps the Bruce Vilanch experiment is over. A few years ago Delaware Theatre Company staged “The World Premiere” of Sign of the Times, a juke box musical of many of Petula Clark’s hits along with some others thrown in to allegedly move the plot. What did our critic think of HERE YOU COME AGAIN at Delaware Theatre Company?

Back in 2016, it only took a Facebook page to show that everyone wanted to 'keep the faith with the music, the faces and the memories'. The quote is from Paula Wolkind, Executive Director of Delaware Rock and Roll Society Hall of Fame. Her husband, George serves as President. The 501©3 non-profit is gearing up for an induction ceremony on Sunday October 9 at the baby grand @ 2pm.

Review: SWEET CHARITY at Candlelight Music TheatreReview: SWEET CHARITY at Candlelight Music Theatre
July 24, 2022

What did our critic think As a 5 decade long advocate for Candlelight Dinner Theatre, first as actor and then as reviewer, it is immensely gratifying to witness that not only have they survived but prospered over these years. They pay their actors and creative crew only a stipend. To a man/woman, “they do it for love”. Having been in tens of theatres over the years, no company exhibits the consistent joy and passion as do those that grace Candlelight’s stage. The packed house on opening night of SWEET CHARITY felt that vibe.of SWEET CHARITY at Candlelight Music Theatre?

Aisle Say has seen probably 600 shows in 65 years. Some I have been in, some I produced and directed. The vast majority are those he’s reviewed over 35+ years. However, next week at The Playhouse with a 4-day run of FIDDLER beginning June 9, Aisle Say announces a first! Never before has he heard a Samoan tenor.

BWW Review: BIG FISH at Candlelight Music TheatreBWW Review: BIG FISH at Candlelight Music Theatre
April 4, 2022

Aisle Say’s most recent review was at DE Theatre Co’s OTHER WORLD, the largest and most technically challenging production in their 45-year history. The budgets of that show versus the cost of Candlelight’s BIG FISH are as dissimilar as Mt. Kilimanjaro to Brandywine Park’s Monkey Hill.
