Photo Flash: First Look at Serenbe Playhouse's A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE
by Tyler Peterson - Jun 17, 2015

Summer in the South is swathed in heat - as the mercury rises, personalities writhe and drama comes to a boil. Few stories capture the tumult of the region's hot spells as well as Tennessee Williams' A Streetcar Named Desire, and Serenbe is taking the heat of the story to new heights by setting it outside in the elements of a Georgian summer. The dark southern scope of Blanche DuBois' timeless and sultry tale of deception will be brought to new life in the industrial scenery of Serenbe's newly debuted Art Farm stage. There, the French Quarter of New Orleans will be resuscitated within rustic, recycled shipping containers to create a fresh, bold, timeless take on a true classic. Scroll down for a sneak peek at the leads!

BWW Reviews: ACT's SEVEN WAYS TO GET THERE Feels Anticlimactic
by Jay Irwin - Feb 27, 2015

There are two main problems with doing a show about therapy, such as ACT's world premiere of "Seven Ways to Get There" currently playing. First, that someone else's therapy on stage can be good for the author but often times deadly for the audience. Luckily Bryan Willis and Dwayne J. Clark's new play avoids that trap. But the larger trap is that therapy doesn't really have a definite ending so you either portray an unrealistic look at the world of therapy or, as is the case here, the play just kind of ends as the people involved with the therapy continue onward working on their issues. And while the show definitely has engaging characters and performances, that lack of closure and finality for the audience doesn't work out so well theatrically.
