by Don Grigware - May 13, 2019

My Thing of Love is an off-center black comedy about the down side of marriage and the pain of love. Written by award winning playwright Alexandra Gersten-Vassilaros and produced by the Steppenwolf Theatre in the 1990s, the play is a lesser known work and rarely produced. The Sixty-six Theater Co, has audaciously seized the moment and mounted a sterling presentation that will appeal to your twisted sense of humor now through May 18. (more...)

BWW Interview: Artistic Director Paul Rush at Sixty-six Theater Co. Welcomes MY THING OF LOVEBWW Interview: Artistic Director Paul Rush at Sixty-six Theater Co. Welcomes MY THING OF LOVE
by Don Grigware - Apr 29, 2019

Paul Rush is the artistic director of Sixty-six Theater Co. located inside the Strasberg Institute in Hollywood. This past weekend April 26 - 28 he opened a new play in the Marilyn Monroe Theater of the Institute entitled My Thing of Love.

BWW Review: World Premiere BIG SKY Examines How the Truth Shall Set You Free
by Shari Barrett - Jun 20, 2016

And while the ending seems a bit obscure at first, listening to everyone talking about it as they were leaving the theater convinced me that something thought-provoking had just been shared with all of us.
