BWW Review: Spirit of Chaplin Lives in VISIONS OF LOVE by Pointless TheatreBWW Review: Spirit of Chaplin Lives in VISIONS OF LOVE by Pointless Theatre
by Roger Catlin - Jan 21, 2019

By 1931, technology had advanced enough to allow Charlie Chaplin to make his latest film, 'City Lights,' as a talkie. But why would he? By then, he had mastered his singularly poetic choreography that universally communicated comedy without need for language. Further, he could use advancements in sound to take control of the musical accompaniment.

BWW Review: Kookoo For the BAROCOCO Poufs of Happenstance at Theatre ProjectBWW Review: Kookoo For the BAROCOCO Poufs of Happenstance at Theatre Project

by Pamela Roberts - Apr 4, 2018

"A film noir inspired theatrical montage"- the subtitle of Happenstance Theater's CABARET NOIR perfectly encapsulates the richly stylized and wonderfully varied experience. Scandals, pistols, foggy streets, soft shoe, sweet harmonies, and red herrings - this production vividly captures the mood and the moment of those dark, smoky movies. Devised and performed by the Helen Hayes Award-winning ensemble, CABARET NOIR highlights the artistic strengths of the company of six. (more...)

BWW Review: Happenstance Theater's BON VOYAGE! A HAPPENSTANCE ESCAPADE a Perfect Summer Confection
by Andrew White - Jul 19, 2017

Happenstance's ensemble is chock full of talents, and when combined in a show like this it is impossible not to smile the whole way through. For kids you have slapstick, bad puns and the occasional chance for audience participation (we can make it rain, people). For adults you have visual puns from classic art, statues, and familiar French tunes that never go out of fashion. (more...)
