BWW Review: RUDDIGORE at The McGill Savoy SocietyBWW Review: RUDDIGORE at The McGill Savoy Society
by Andee Shuster - Feb 10, 2019

Well-staged and nicely choreographed by Coralie Heiler and Stefania Bertrand, Savoy's Ruddigore was a sweet show, but quite traditional and safe. This production strayed away from the updated modern-day lyric changes that Savoy was always infamous for. (more...)

BWW Review: ENRON Engaging and Thought Provoking High Tech EntertainmentBWW Review: ENRON Engaging and Thought Provoking High Tech Entertainment
by Frank Benge - Feb 27, 2018

ENRON is a 2009 play by British playwright Lucy Prebble. The play is based on the financial scandal and eventual collapse of the American energy corporation, Enron, based in Houston,Texas. Enron executive Jeffrey Skilling (Annemarie Alaniz) and his boss Ken Lay (Kayla Johnson) are the main characters along with Skilling's protege Andy Fastow (Caroline Beagles), who rises to become the chief financial officer. Prebble's play is a heady mix of multimedia razzle dazzle, morality play and political satire. To avoid being dry as dust, Prebble has taken complex financial concepts and framed them in terms of the entertainment world: market analysts become a boy band, the Lehman Brothers are presented as Siamese twins, Arthur Anderson is a ventriloquist act, to name just a few. Capitalism is, in general, presented as the tricks and illusions of the sideshow con man. Spanning the years between 1992 and the present, Prebble's play does take some dramatic license. Prebble makes Jeffrey Skilling, Enron's top executive, the main villain, instead of founder Kenneth Lay. Skilling gets the top job because of his vision of the future: Enron won't just provide natural gas; it will trade in energy, the internet, video streaming and even the weather. Skilling makes Andy Fastow the chief financial officer when he comes up with the plan to create shadow companies to disquise Enron's escalating debts as assets. Eventually, the whole corrupt bubble bursts. (more...)
