by Rachael F. Goldberg - Oct 8, 2021

It seems fitting, in many ways, to return to live theater with such an incredible and incredibly well told story of optimism, humor, and resilience. Theater J’s season opener is a beautiful, thoughtful biography of a woman who can remind us of the value of intimate, loving relationships and how to keep going through moments of adversity – reminders we can all certainly benefit from right now.

by Timothy Treanor - Jun 8, 2021

“What’s past is prologue” Prospero says in The Tempest, but when the present passes into the past what’s left is Will on the Hill and Far Away, the earnest and frequently successful effort by Congressmen to do Shakespeare funny.
