BWW Review: TEA & SYMPATHY is Strong with Eye Opening Emotions at Birmingham Festival Theatre

With Pride Week approaching, Birmingham Festival Theatre is on time with offering an emotional and striking production of Robert Anderson's 1953 drama 'Tea and Sympathy.' Set at an all boys' school in the early 1950's, the show tackles the fear, insecurity and the eventual anger that people under persecution face. The teenage boys attending the school are written with an amped jocular rambunctiousness. The carnal behavior lurking behind the boy's clean crisp khaki's and sweater vests is a starter kit for toxic masculinity.

BWW Review: SHENANDOAH at Serenbe Playhouse

It's sunset on a Sunday evening as I walk up a dusty pathway heading for the Horseman's Meadow at Serenbe Playhouse where a new production of Shenandoah, a musical adapted from the 1965 Jimmy Stewart film of the same name, plays through April 14.  Brilliant orange and purple light blankets the open field to my left.  To my right, a Civil War campsite moves into view.  Canvas tents soak up the last of the sun, and shadows fall on the faces of soldiers as they rest.  Here a few soldiers play poker.  There a soldier holds a live chicken, dinner for the weary troops.  Still farther on, a few tend to the tired horses. The camp is a spectacle that almost trumps nature's best spectacle, the dazzling sunset of an early spring.  But even the grand spectacle of the campsite pales in comparison to the battle that unfolds only moments later on the empty meadow. Terrence J. Smith and Cast Photo by BreeAnne Clowdus Men, some atop real horses, come from nowhere, and we are drenched in the chaotic sound of rapid artillery fire and the light of explosions - the remnants of shots fired from rifles and the fuses of cannons.  We are spectators at some battle where many men will die and where few will be able to articulate what it has all been for.  That's the Serenbe way of opening a Civil War play.  It's the classic Clowdus go-big-or-go-home welcome, and this play needs all the  help it can get to rise above its challenges, a heavy-handed script troubled by weakly drawn characters and a lackluster score.  Though the challenges are significant, visionary director Brian Clowdus, along with his creative team and talented cast, including a tentative American Idol-winner Taylor Hicks in his first principal acting role and Broadway's vibrant Rachel Potter, prove that the challenges are not insurmountable as they turn out an effective and memorable staging.
