BWW Review: Theatre UCF's Entertaining MAN AND SUPERMAN Miss Shavian Mark
by Matt Tamanini - Nov 18, 2015

For many modern audiences, George Bernard Shaw is the guy who wrote the play that MY FAIR LADY is based on, or the guy whom John F. Kennedy misquoted in 1963, but as director Lani Harris points out in the program for Theatre UCF's production of MAN AND SUPERMAN, running through November 22nd, Shaw was a theatre critic turned playwright, who used his public acclaim to stir the political pot of late 1800s-early 1900s England. A committed socialist, Shaw imbued his plays with social commentaries that range from progressive to offensive by today's standards. Despite the playwright's intentions, Harris' production of this classic comedy of manners is well-performed by an excellent all-student cast, but never seems to settle on anything specific to say, despite admirable efforts.

BWW Review: Theatre UCF's '(a love story)' is an Entertaining Modern Take on Classic Tragedy
by Matt Tamanini - Feb 24, 2015

'Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.' For many, those words are the definition of what a love story should be about. However, in Theatre UCF's play '(a love story),' which runs through March 1st, three intertwining tales chronicle all of the fevered, messy emotions involved with falling in, and out, of love. The highly-stylized play casts a disapproving eye on love in the modern world, all the while casing the storytelling in the trappings of a classic tragedy. Playwright Kelly Lusk occasionally uses the familiar structure to illuminate the universality of love, but more often than not, he allows it to run roughshod over the story being told, robbing it of any genuine emotion. Nonetheless, Theatre UCF's production is marked with uniformly impressive performances and thrilling production design; reaffirming why Central Florida's colleges provide some of the best, cutting-edge theatre in the region.
