BWW Review: Strawshop's 9 CIRCLES Elicits Powerful Emotions on War
by Jay Irwin - Jun 6, 2016

Sometimes you go to a show and you see what can only be described as a "Star Turn". That performance that shows just how amazing an actor is. But what do you call it when you see it over and over again? Lately I call it Conner Neddersen as, just like his previous stellar performances, his performance in Strawberry Theatre Workshop's current production of "9 Circles" shows off once again just how fine of an actor he is and how he keeps growing better and better with each role.

Phoebe Productions Sets Inaugural Production
by Tyler Peterson - Mar 14, 2016

Phoebe Productions will produce a limited-run revival of Lee Blessing's Two Rooms as its inaugural offering, starting April 13 at Theatre 54 at Shetler Studios. Two Rooms tells the story of the wife of an American hostage held in Beirut facing the difficult decision of cooperating with cautious hostage negotiators from the State Department or taking a riskier path by speaking candidly and publicly with a journalist. Although written in response to the hostage abductions of the 1980s, the play continues to resonate as we face similar hostage situations throughout the world today. Two Rooms examines the conflict between the needs of the state and the costs of those needs to individual victims and those who love them.

BWW Review: Strawberry Theatre Workshop's THE BIRDS Creeps in Good and Bad Ways
by Jay Irwin - Jan 23, 2016

First off if you're expecting to see a Tippi Hedren lookalike being chased by animatronic birds in Strawberry Theatre Workshop's current production of "The Birds" then you'll be quite disappointed. This is not an adaptation of Hitchcock's film but of Daphne du Maurier's book. But even though we never really see the attackers, the evening still contains a good amount of creepiness. After all, the monsters in our minds are scarier than anything they could show us.

BWW Reviews: A Nostalgic Resonance in Strawshop's OUR TOWN
by Jay Irwin - Feb 6, 2015

There are some plays that are just kind of done to death. Everyone and their brother, high school and dog have done them. Thornton Wilder's "Our Town" is one of those shows. But there's a reason for that, it's a classic. And when these classics are tackled with style and heart as is the case with the current production from Strawberry Theatre Workshop, we're reminded how they've become such classics and why we should pay attention to what they still have to tell us.
