Review: STEEL MAGNOLIAS at Drury Lane Theatre Oakbrook Terrace, IL

What did our critic think of STEEL MAGNOLIAS at Drury Lane Theatre Oakbrook Terrace, IL? Walking into Drury Lane Theatre in Oakbrook Terrace, the set jumps out immediately. There is no curtain. I had to walk up to the lip of the stage to look at it. Angela Weber Miller's design is perfection. A can of Tab, the turquoise couch and many other touches evoking a different time.

BWW Review: THE KING'S SPEECH at DC's National Theatre, from the Perspective of Someone Who Stutters

At the end of the evening, sitting in the National Theatre, I was impressed with the care the cast and creative team took to present this story onstage. It's not your standard political drama, and it's not your standard inspirational porn about a person with a disability either. It's a compelling story about a complex man - complex like all of us. As a person who stutters, I may have identified with Bertie's struggles in a more personal way than many theatergoers and appreciated that his voice - his true voice - could be heard and not stifled. However, at the end of the day, don't we all just want to be heard and seen and valued for who we are?
