BWW Review: Rivertown Brings a Bit of History to life with 1776
by Heidi Scheuermann - Dec 14, 2016

The timing of Rivertown's production of 1776 couldn't have been more perfect. Just in time for the 2016 Presidential Election, audiences were reminded why despite all of the… let's call it shenanigans… surrounding this election, 240 years ago our founding fathers decided to write and sign a declaration that would free our country from being under Britain's rule.

BWW Review: Out of the 'Flying PAN' and Into the TUNA Casserole
by Joseph Baker - Nov 30, 2015

Whether it's fruitcake or eggnog, people love their traditions during the Holiday Season -- and you'd better not disappoint. Memphians are accustomed to cranky 'Ebeneezer Scrooge' hoarding his coins at Theatre Memphis, and in midtown, we're resigned to A TUNA CHRISTMAS at Circuit and PETER PAN at Playhouse on the Square. Just last year, I had seen two -- yes, TWO -- productions of the latter: The version done live on NBC (with an off-center, almost 'sleep walking' Christopher Walken as 'Captain Hook') and the marvelous version directed and choreographed by Jordan Nichols and Travis Bradley at Playhouse. The Playhouse featured players were the unique Morgan Howard (as 'Peter') and the versatile David Foster (as a 'Jack Sparrow'-like 'Hook'); they were alternating the roles with Carly Crawford and Bill Andrews. I am happy to report that I finally was able to see Ms. Crawford and Mr. Andrews assay those roles, and they were equally inspired casting choices (but more about that later).

BWW Reviews: Second to the Right, and Straight on to Rivertown's PETER PAN!
by Heidi Scheuermann - Aug 11, 2015

There's that saying 'Every day you live is one day closer to death.'  The opposite happened for me when by some miracle, or maybe even magic, I became younger and younger until I was young enough to think lovely thoughts and follow Peter to his Neverland at Rivertown Theaters.  PETER PAN is a show that has always been very special to me.  Whether it was my sister betting her fellow first graders that they hadn't seen the 'Mary Martin version' or learning the entirety of the shadow puppet show from 'I Gotta Crow,' this story is one that has and will forever resonate within my soul.
