Review: CLUE at Ridgefield Theater Barn

Based on the 1985 movie, the script of 'Clue' is a fun romp rife with wordplay and sight gags. Need a break from streaming and bingeing and all the newfangled ways to get your entertainment fix? 
Review: CLUE at Ridgefield Theater Barn

The play is by Sandy Rustin, Hunter Foster, and Eric Price, based on the screenplay by Jonathan Lynn. Under the wonderful direction of David Fritsch, the Ridgefield Theater Barn successfully put on yet another phenomenal production that combines comedy with murder mystery!
Review: AN EVENING OF ONE-ACTS at Ridgefield Theater Barn

The good news is that almost all the seven short pieces (averaging 10 minutes each) in RTB’s 2023 menu of theatrical hor d'oeuvres justify their place in the program well enough. Nobody will leave hungry for diverting entertainment.  
Review: AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS 2023 at Ridgefield Theater Barn

On Saturday, March 11, 2023, I had the pleasure of experiencing one of my favorite annual theater traditions in seeing AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS 2023 at the Ridgefield Theater Barn in Ridgefield, CT.  This annual event is a new series each year of original one act plays, mostly in the comedy genre, and always done extremely well by a very talented cast.  Seven total one acts were performed this year, with no intermission.  The prop and scene changes, during the blackouts, between each one act were smooth and efficient.  This was a packed house in an intimate setting.  The cast enters and exits through the center aisle of the audience.  The walls of stage left and stage right are visible to the audience.  Every audience member seemed to be highly entertained.
Review: THE EXONERATED at Ridgefield Theater Barn

On Thursday, September 8th, I had the pleasure of seeing THE EXONERATED at The Ridgefield Theater Barn, in Ridgefield, CT.  This show is amazing, based on true stories, and sends some deeply impacting messages that touch the emotions to the core, in a good way. It opens awareness in the minds of the audience, about things not always being as they seem, and people not always being who they may appear to be.
BWW Review: AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS 2022 at Ridgefield Theater Barn

Every year, one of my favorite annual theater traditions is seeing the evening of one acts at the Ridgefield Theater Barn, in Ridgefield, CT.  I had the pleasure of continuing that wonderful tradition on Friday, March 18, with AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS 2022 which continues with the consistent first-rate shows and performances I have come to expect and enjoy every year.  This show contains seven one acts, mostly with a comedic tone.
BWW Review: AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS Joyously Welcomes Audiences Back to Ridgefield Theater Barn

This smartly-curated collection of five short, lively, skillfully-mounted plays -- running without intermission for a fast-moving 90 or so minutes -- is a fine and fun way to become reacquainted with the kind of pleasures only live-audience theater can offer. (Zoom theater ably serves its purpose as a stop-gap -- not a substitute -- for in-the-room theater.)

BWW Review: VANYA AND SONIA AND MASHA AND SPIKE Bring Chekov and Ibsen Together at TheatreWorks New Milford

'Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike' is one of those shows that has the potential to make you laugh, cry, cheer, jeer, sympathize, and feel hopeful and uncomfortable all within the span of a single conversation. It takes a tight cast and crew to capitalize on that potential, and TheatreWorks New Milford made the grade.

BWW Review: AN EVENING OF ONE ACTS 2019 at Ridgefield Theater Barn

These original comedies, so masterfully delivered, keep the audience laughing all throughout, and continue to reveal the power of local theater, local acting, and local playwrighting which every year at the Ridgefield Theater Barn proves itself to be far superior than much of what is highly acclaimed on Broadway.
BWW Review: IT'S A WONDERFUL LIFE RADIO PLAY at Ridgefield Theater Barn
