BWW Reviews: Chance Theater Rocks Out With 'TOMMY'
by Michael L. Quintos - Aug 2, 2010

The latest to produce a full production of the rock opera THE WHO'S TOMMY is The Chance Theater in Anaheim Hills, the little store-front black box theater that, over the years, have managed to do quite a lot with its small space. In this fast-paced, tightly-directed new revival, THE WHO'S TOMMY-with sold out performances extended through August 15-hits with the ferocity of a full-on rock concert and features a confident, spirited cast. And, in somewhat of a nice surprise, the show utilizes newer technology unseen (or unaffordable) in many smaller theaters. (more...)

BWW Reviews: Theatre Out's Revised 'EDWARD II' Postulates Openly-Gay Monarch
by BWW News Desk - Jun 5, 2010

There is always a sense of curiosity when it comes to the private lives of famous people...Which actress just entered rehab? Which actor is cheating on his wife? Which singer is a secret homesexual? Yes, despite bigger troubles in the world, there is an appetite for such salaciously juicy tidbits. And, oddly, even our own iconic, historical figures aren't immune to such speculation. To wit, Abraham Lincoln to this day can't quite escape a few whispered rumors about his alleged homosexual tendencies. That very rumor is the raison d'etre for Theatre Out's impressive revisionist adaptation of Christopher Marlowe's late 1500's play EDWARD II, now playing at the Empire Theater in Santa Ana through June 5. This new take on the troubled monarch's downfall-written in similar meter by Darcy Hogan-focuses its tabloid spotlight on the widely-held rumor that this King was really gay (or, perhaps, really bisexual), and that his eventual deposition from the throne of England (and subsequent murder) was a direct result of it.

Review: Theatre Out's TICK TICK BOOM! Explodes in The O.C. (Ends 2/20)
by Michael L. Quintos - Jan 28, 2010

In Theatre Out's latest production (which plays through February 20 at the Empire Theater in Santa Ana), TICK...TICK...BOOM!, Larson's pre-Rent, briefly workshopped musical is an interesting theater piece that's really more of an archival discovery from the vault of a brilliant musician rather than a staging of his definitive masterwork. An overall commendable production of Larson's autobiographical musical, the show features an excellent, impressive performance by actor Ian Michael Stewart playing the lead role of Jon. (more...)
