BWW Review: WEST SIDE STORY At Lyric Theatre Brings Surprising And Profound Depth Alongside Exquisite DancingBWW Review: WEST SIDE STORY At Lyric Theatre Brings Surprising And Profound Depth Alongside Exquisite Dancing
by Ronn Burton - Jul 27, 2017

This updated retelling of Romeo and Juliet is set in 1950s New York City, yet its themes of racism and hatred of anything deemed "different" ring especially true in today's political climate, sadly. WEST SIDE STORY is a compelling reminder of just how much hatred, prejudice, and ignorance can destroy what we all hold so dear. One of Lyric's most fully realized productions I can think of in recent memory…do yourself a favor and allow the message of this piece to penetrate your heart and mind - for truly great art has the power to influence the world.

BWW Review: Moody MIDWESTERN GOTHIC Premieres at Signature TheatreBWW Review: Moody MIDWESTERN GOTHIC Premieres at Signature Theatre
by Barbara Johnson - Apr 3, 2017

My expectations for the premiere of MIDWESTERN GOTHIC at Signature Theatre were so high that the musical itself was bound to fall short, no matter what. Billed as a darkly funny thriller, it's got atmosphere in spades and boasts laudable performances from a cast of committed actors. But that isn't enough to keep the whole affair from feeling like an interesting concept still in search of a form. (more...)
