BWW Review: HAMLET - Redux In Rep With Rosencrantz And Guildenstern Are Dead At City Theatre
by Lynn Beaver - Mar 17, 2017

William Shakespeare's HAMLET is arguably one of the most universally popular plays ever written, but it's only one half of Redux in Rep at City Theatre.

BWW Review: BUS STOP an American Classic Done Right
by Frank Benge - Mar 28, 2016

Coming from Kansas and receiving my education there, I have more than a passing familiarity with playwright William Inge. Being born in the small town of Independence, Inge attributed his understanding of human behavior to growing up in a small town environment. The influence of that Kansas childhood is evident in many of his works, which tend to revolve around characters that are clearly the products of places like Independence.

While Inge may not have the poetic lyricism of a Tennessee Williams or the overarching high moral message of an Arthur Miller; he did have an understanding of the concerns of average Middle Americans. It was because of this understanding that Inge became labeled the 'Playwright of the Midwest'. (more...)
