by Ellen Dostal - May 2, 2018

BWW Review: LIANA AND BEN - A Stunning Technical MarvelBWW Review: LIANA AND BEN - A Stunning Technical Marvel
by Gil Kaan - Feb 20, 2017

Circle X Theatre Co.'s world premiere of playwright Susan Rubin's LIANA AND BEN presents one of the best technical productions I've seen in small LA theatres. Walking into the Atwater Village Theatre, more than a number of entering audience members do a double take at the optical illusion right in front of their faces. The lighting design of Dan Weingarten combined with the very basic, very clever set of set designer Alan E. Muraoka lead one to believe they're looking... (more...)

BWW Review: 24th Street Theatre's HANSEL AND GRETEL BLUEGRASS Is Artful StorytellingBWW Review: 24th Street Theatre's HANSEL AND GRETEL BLUEGRASS Is Artful Storytelling
by Ellen Dostal - Oct 31, 2016

24th Street Theatre takes on the Brothers Grimm in its latest world premiere Hansel & Gretel Bluegrass by Bryan Davidson, but forget the fairy tale you think you know. This is no sanitized version of the story. The original, written in 1812, was a cautionary tale, bleak in its portrayal of a time when it was commonplace for impoverished families to abandon their children for lack of food and resources. The thought was that they would somehow find a way to survive and maybe even be better off on their own. It's a heartbreaking decision for any parent to make and, unfortunately, one that families in dire circumstances around the world still face today. (more...)

BWW Review: MAN COVETS BIRD and Delivers Magic at 24th Street TheatreBWW Review: MAN COVETS BIRD and Delivers Magic at 24th Street Theatre
by Ellen Dostal - Oct 1, 2015

You can tell when a theatre company cares about its audience, especially when that audience is largely made up of young people. It doesn't talk down to them and it doesn't assume they will only understand the obvious. Instead, its directors take the time to seek out work that is worthy of engagement, provokes thought, and gives more to the world than it takes. It serves both the child and the child in the adult. And that's what 24th Street Theatre has done with MAN COVETS BIRD, the follow-up to their wildly successful award-winning production of WALKING THE TIGHTROPE. (more...)
