BWW Review: Players By The Sea's AMERICAN IDIOT  Is Needed and ImportantBWW Review: Players By The Sea's AMERICAN IDIOT Is Needed and Important
by Heather Vollman - Jul 28, 2017

Theatre inspires. Incorporated as a viral hashtag during the 2017 Tony season, complete with a Facebook frame that many in the theatre industry have made their permanent statement, the arts community has touted the power of theatre to inspire everyone, if we allow it.

To understand, though, you have to see it.

by Natasha Ashley - Jul 24, 2017

The risks, the choices, and the hardworking people are what make the little 'theatre in the mall' so special. The devotion and dedication is very much evident in this latest production rocking the stage at The Central New York Playhouse. (more...)
