BWW Review: Strawberry Theatre Workshop's HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE SurprisesBWW Review: Strawberry Theatre Workshop's HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE Surprises
by Jay Irwin - Jun 8, 2018

One thing I've found with Paula Vogel's plays is that they never cease to surprise. You may think you know what you're in for but then she pulls back layer upon layer giving you so much more than you bargained for. This is certainly true with her Pulitzer Prize winning play "How I Learned to Drive", currently being offered from Strawberry Theatre Workshop at 12th Avenue Arts as you're given a truly horrifying subject and left unsure how to feel about those perpetrating it.

BWW Review: WET's STRAIGHT WHITE MEN Examines Privilege but Takes the Long Way AroundBWW Review: WET's STRAIGHT WHITE MEN Examines Privilege but Takes the Long Way Around
by Jay Irwin - Jan 14, 2018

As you enter the theater for Washington Ensemble Theatre's Straight White Men , currently playing at 12th Ave Arts, you are greeted with Hip Hop music with questionable lyrics amped up to the point that you can feel the bass in your filings.

What follows is Young Jean Lee's overly stereotypical and clich examination of four straight white men and their privilege. So, I can only assume seeing an interesting play with a point was also a privilege we were denied. (more...)
