BWW Review: MS. BLAKK FOR PRESIDENT at Steppenwolf Theatre CompanyBWW Review: MS. BLAKK FOR PRESIDENT at Steppenwolf Theatre Company
by Rachel Weinberg - Jun 5, 2019

While MS. BLAKK FOR PRESIDENT's narrative flounders in certain points, the play's integrity never flounders. Watching the play unfold, there's no denying the relevance of the issues that Blakk faced in 1992 to today's society. But the play brilliantly conveys that resonance while also still maintaining a light-hearted and celebratory tone worthy of the story that it portrays. (more...)

BWW Review: Lushly Romantic THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA Ushers in New Era for Street Theatre CompanyBWW Review: Lushly Romantic THE LIGHT IN THE PIAZZA Ushers in New Era for Street Theatre Company
by Jeffrey Ellis - Apr 5, 2019

Craig Lucas' evocative libretto and Adam Guettel's lushly romantic (and Tony Award-winning) score, notwithstanding - and putting aside the momentous occasion of Street Theatre Company inaugurating a new theater venue - perhaps the most notable attribute of the Ernie Nolan-directed version of The Light in the Piazza debuting tonight is its stellar cast of artists who bring the show to life with such apparent ardor. Continuing through April 20, STC's The Light in the Piazza is beautifully sung and impressively acted by Nolan's impeccably cast ensemble in a production fairly redolent of mid-century Florence and it serves as the perfect introduction to STC's new home.
