BWW Review:  Spooky Action Theater's THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND Photo BWW Review: Spooky Action Theater's THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND
by Timothy Treanor - Aug 20, 2021

How could you not love a play about theater critics? Especially where, as in Tom Stoppard‚Äôs The Real Inspector Hound, now available in virtual format through Spooky Action Theater‚Äôs website, the critics are pompous, abrasive and criminally uninformed. Moon (Robert Bowen Smith) and Birdboot (Steve Beall), critics both, are the only audience ‚Äď perhaps we should say witnesses ‚Äď to the butchery known as Murder in Muldoon Manor. Muldoon is an enterprise so catastrophic that it makes Nothing On (the calamity being performed by the actors in Noises Off) seem like Beckett, or Shakespeare, or ‚Äď Stoppard.

BWW Review: Spooky Action Theater Waxes Philosophical with RAMEAU'S NEPHEW
by Barbara Johnson - Oct 24, 2016

Spooky Action Theater opens its season with a cutting-edge play that covers politics, celebrity, and the nature of genius. RAMEAU'S NEPHEW, adapted from an 18th century work by Denis Diderot, is hardly new, but this 2016 incarnation is as timely and amusing as can be. Director Richard Henrich delivers a production with flashes of outright brilliance that compensate for a few (non-fatal) flaws.

BWW Review: Spooky Action Theater Rewrites History with COLLABORATORS
by Barbara Johnson - Feb 15, 2016

From the first darkly comic scene, Spooky Action Theater's COLLABORATORS plunges its audience into a tension between hilarity and terror. As the play unfolds, there is laughter at the absurdity of the situation and simultaneous dread over what will happen next. A revisionist account of Mikhail Bulgakov's writing of a play about dictator Joseph Stalin in 1930s Moscow, COLLABORATORS is inspired by fact but considers what could have happened behind the scenes.

by Audrey Liebross - Jun 2, 2014

KWAIDAN (Japanese for 'ghost stories'), Spooky Action Theater's current production, is a must-see, although it is impossible to describe this mood piece. The performance plays mind-games with the attendees, making them feel like they are surrounded by spirits.
