BWW Review: THE JEWISH QUEEN LEAR at Theater J Photo BWW Review: THE JEWISH QUEEN LEAR at Theater J
by Rachael Goldberg - Mar 21, 2019

If the cultural and historical relevance weren't enough incentive, Theater J's production of 'The Jewish Queen Lear' will make you glad for the current revitalization of Yiddish theater. The play is an emotional journey, with insights into family, power, pride, and love. 'Mirele Efros' is a surprisingly modern play, and 'The Jewish Queen Lear' honors both the past and present in its performance. It's a touching story, a wonderful cast of characters (in both senses of the phrase), and a beautiful production.

BWW Reviews: BOEING BOEING: Howard's REP Outdoes Itself with a Delirious Farce
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Apr 21, 2013

We have not only laughed our heads off, not only witnessed the fulfillment, however temporary, of transgressive bachelor-in-paradise fantasies, but also been treated to something rarer: a visual reimmersion in the colors and sights of the most carefree part of an era: the coordinated uniforms and flight bags, the electric blue paint on the wall, the miniskirts, the smoking-jacket-and-ascot, not to mention the final payoff: a curtain-call that will remind viewers of the way singing groups used to present on television before rock videos and MTV.

Rep Stage Closes Season With BOEING BOEING, Beginning 4/17
by BWW News Desk - Apr 9, 2013

Rep Stage, the professional Equity theatre in residence at Howard Community College (HCC), concludes its 20th anniversary season with Marc Camoletti's high-flying bedroom farce, Boeing Beoing. Karl Kippola, who starred as Tom Wingfield in Rep's 2010 production of The Glass Menagerie, directs this comedic romp through 1960s Paris where Bernard, an American bachelor playboy, must juggle the comings and goings of his three air-hostess fiancees, his overworked acerbic French maid, and an old friend who unexpectedly arrives from Wisconsin. Bernard has the arrivals and departures of the trio of international air-hostesses perfectly scheduled by using the airlines own timetables - until the addition of the Boeing Boeing jets. Suddenly, air travel gets faster and turbulence ensues until everyone arrives at Bernard's Parisian love-nest at the same time. Boeing Boeing features James Whalen as Bernard; Paul Edward Hope as Robert, the friend; and Nanna Ingvarsson as Berthe, the French maid; with Allison Leigh Corke, Kelsea Edgerly, and Molly Cahill Govern coming in for a landing as the three international flight attendants.
