BWW Review: The Rep's FOREIGNER Resounds with Contagious Laughter and Contemporary Relevance
by Peggy Sue Dunigan - Nov 25, 2016

Written 30 plus years ago in 1985, the late Milwaukee playwright Larry Shue's award winning Foreigner first debuted at the Milwaukee Repertory Theater. After playing Broadway in the 80's, and reprised by numerous theaters across the country on an annual basis, Foreigner returns to the Quadracci Powerhous for the holiday season. Directed by the inimitable Laura Gordon who understands Shue's incomparable blend of humor, relevance and warm heartedness, could re-envision this scenario in a rural Georgia bed and breakfast inn. At the Georgia inn, a British Sergeant, Froggy, rescues his low spirited and shy friend Charlie for a weekend's stay Here Charlie meets the winsome inn owner, Betty, a conspiring reverend, David Marshall Lee, his fiance Catherine, her younger brother, Ellard, and a rapscallion homegrown Georgian, Owen. Throw in Catherine and Ellard's recent inheritance, and the invisible white empire on a starry night, and Shue created a hilarious farce, even when seen several times.

BWW Reviews: THE RITZ BRINGS BAWDY BROADWAY DOWN UNDER at New Theatre
by Brodie Paparella - Feb 22, 2016

A man walks into a bathhouse...now there's an angle to an old classic we hadn't heard before! And New Theatre's The Ritz is nothing but twists on classics in this madcap tale of a man on the run from his murderous brother-in-law who accidentally hides out in a 1970s gay sauna thinking it's a swanky hotel! Hilarity seems bound to ensue, but even I was surprised by how much of a hoot this In-&-Out-meets-Boogie-Nights show would be. In 1975, The Ritz was playwright Terrence McNally's Broadway debut and was so acclaimed a film version was produced within a year. The Ritz has become a cult film for the gay community but is loved by all audiences for its progressive approaches to gay culture, fetishes and homophobia. The story was inspired by real New York sauna, The Continental, that was visited by people of all sexual persuasions and celebrities looking to meet the artsy and fartsy.
