Review: BLACK CYPRESS BAYOU at Geffen Playhouse

Part mystery, part cathartic family drama ruminating on legacies of evil and forgiveness, director Tiffany Nichole Greene’s production grips us tightly from the outset and does not easily let us go. Thankfully, along this 80-minute journey, we also get to laugh as well as exhale.

Review: MIDDLE OF THE WORLD at Rogue Machine

At its heart, Middle of the World is something of an unexpected love story between a fallen socialist leader from Ecuador and a young, driven Black finance executive.

Interview: Playwright Catya McMullen on the World Premiere of ARROWHEAD produced by IAMA Theatre Company

Catya McMullen (pictured), a native New Yorker, now finds herself at home in Los Angeles. While working in film and television, her life-long love of theater inspired her to write plays. The world premiere of Arrowhead is her first being presented here, produced by IAMA at Atwater Village Theatre, directed by Jenna Worsham. I decided to speak with Catya about her journey to writing the play, why she set it in Arrowhead, its themes, and how it speaks to different generations of women about love and sexual identity.

Review: INHERIT THE WIND at Pasadena Playhouse

Director Michael Michetti has put thought and heart into his production and peopled it with a strong cast whose characters opt for playing the strength of their convictions over histrionics. A hurricane force this WIND is not, but there’s plenty to enjoy.

Review: THE ENIGMATIST at The Kennedy Center

Puzzles and patterns, stories and magic are artfully woven together by David Kwong in The Enigmatist at the Kennedy Center. The immersive experience is a little bit theatre, a little bit magic show, with some codebreaking, word games and storytelling thrown in for fun. Who knew that constructing a crossword puzzle together could be so fun?

Review: THE BOTTOMING PROCESS at The Renberg Theatre

This could have been a compelling exploration of interracial and intergenerational relationships, but with the lead being so hateful and the script so sharply heavy-handed, any impact is lost.
