BWW Review: HIR at The Liminal PLayhouseBWW Review: HIR at The Liminal PLayhouse
by Keith Waits - Sep 5, 2017

The dysfunctional family drama has long been a staple in American theatre, only the particulars of the dysfunction change to reflect the times. In Taylor Mac's Hir, Isaac Connor (Neil Brewer) is a Marine discharged from active duty collecting dead bodies from a war zone, returns to his California home to find his mother, Paige (Teresa Willis). has abandoned all sense of order and has clothes, food, and other life detritus strewn around the house. His stroke victim father, Arnold (Michael Drury) sits in a house dress and rainbow clown wig behaving like a toddler, and his sister, MAx (Megan Adair) is trans gender, preferring to be addressed as 'hir' (rhymes with here) or 'Zee.'

BWW Review: THE WEDDING SINGER at Acting Against CancerBWW Review: THE WEDDING SINGER at Acting Against Cancer
by Keith Waits - Aug 15, 2017

I am not the biggest fan of Adam Sandler, or at least the movies he manufactures for himself and his buddies, but I have always liked The Wedding Singer, one of his first, most endearing films. The story of Robbie Hart (Remy Sisk), a cheesy but sincere front man for a wedding band in the late 1980's, is a logical selection for adaptation into a stage musical, and provides ample opportunity for satire of social trends in fashion.
