Theater For The New City's Dream Up Festival Will Present OCCASIONALLY NOTHINGTheater For The New City's Dream Up Festival Will Present OCCASIONALLY NOTHING
by BWW News Desk - Aug 3, 2018

It was inevitable, perhaps, that our post-truth politics would seep into 21st century absurdist theater. One sunny example is 'Occasionally Nothing' by Natalie Menna, which takes us to a dismal time-to-come when something can become a profound, obvious nothing. Life becomes the time in between the sometimes which sometimes happen. The piece won awards in Planet Connections Festivity for developmental staging's, with critics cheering the playwright for her mastery of Theater of the Absurd. Theater for the New City's Dream Up festival will present the work September 8 to 16. Ivette Dumeng directs. (more...)

BWW Review: THE CURATE SHAKESPEARE AS YOU LIKE IT - A Silly Take On The Bard

by BWW News Desk - Mar 5, 2018

Tickets for the current production of The Baron's Men, The Curate Shakespeare As You Like It, are still available for the two final weekends. When Don Nigro, the author, was asked to adapt As You Like It so that it could be performed by seven people, he devised an original work about a ragtag group of players who must present Shakespeare's play in the face of near-impossible challenges. Since its creation, it has become an underground comic classic. This production is Austin's premiere, and it is presented with special arrangement by Samuel French. (more...)

BWW Interview: Kate Clark on THE CURATE SHAKESPEARE AS YOU LIKE ITBWW Interview: Kate Clark on THE CURATE SHAKESPEARE AS YOU LIKE IT
by Frank Benge - Feb 24, 2018

Coming in March, The Baron's Men will be presenting the rarely performed The Curate Shakespeare AS YOU LIKE at the Curtain Theatre. This unique piece of theatre is subtitled 'the record of one company's attempt to perform the play by William Shakespeare.' The piece came about when the playwright, Don Nigro, was asked by a professional theatre company to adapt AS YOU LIKE IT for performance by a company of seven. Mr. Nigro wrote an original play about a motly company of actors, led by a daft curate, who present Shakespeare's AS YOU LIKE IT. The result is a comedy about their attempts to impersonate all of Shakespeare's characters. The play has had numerous productions nationwide and has become a cult theater classic. We recently had an opportunity to sit down with director Kate Clark for a deeper look at bringing this wholly unique piece to Austin audiences. (more...)
