Personally, the best part of theater is when you are transported into total escapism. A catchy soundtrack, an in-your-face stage presence, and an increasingly silly tale but with a number of life lessons beneath it, THE NOSE at the Artscape Arena offers the perfect summer night escape from the crazy festive season while skillfully serving some 'crazy' onstage itself.

BWW Review: Something is So Right About THE WRONG BOX at Theatre for the New City Photo BWW Review: Something is So Right About THE WRONG BOX at Theatre for the New City
by Kristen Morale - Sep 14, 2018

With book, music and lyrics written by Kit Goldstein Grant, directedchoreographed by Michael Chase Gosselin and based on the novel by Robert Louis Stevenson and Lloyd Osbourne, The Wrong Box now celebrates its World Premiere at Theater for the New City as part of its Dream Up Festival. Grant and Gosselin now come together since having worked on Grant's The Nose, and their joint efforts truly show the magic to be found in this collaboration. Grant's plot of wayward characters who winner of the tontine, to wreaking havoc in the baggage area of a train on its way to the middle of nowhere and a random moment of drunkenness, The Wrong Box takes a complex plot and not only tests the audience's sense of humor, but also our ability to follow along. If understood completely, this is one hell of a crazy ride.
