by Cindy Marcolina - Aug 1, 2018

Review: WRITE ME A MURDER Engages Audiences from Start to Finish at Theatre Palisades Review: WRITE ME A MURDER Engages Audiences from Start to Finish at Theatre Palisades
by Shari Barrett - Jun 27, 2018

English playwright and screenwriter Frederick Knott, though a reluctant writer, is known for his ingeniously complex, crime-related plots even though he only completed three plays in his career. Two have become classics: the London-based stage thriller Dial M for Murder, which was later filmed in Hollywood by Alfred Hitchcock, and the chilling 1966 play Wait Until Dark, which also became a Hollywood film starring Audrey Hepburn as a blind woman terrorized by thugs in her basement apartment. His third play, WRITE ME A MURDER, has never achieved the same acclaim nor been performed nearly as much as his other two hit plays. See it now at Theatre Palisades, directed with attention-grabbing skill by Michael-Anthony Nozzi. (more...)

Review: THE FANTASTICKS Enchants with Original Off-Broadway Staging Thanks to Director Sherman Wayne at Theatre Palisades Review: THE FANTASTICKS Enchants with Original Off-Broadway Staging Thanks to Director Sherman Wayne at Theatre Palisades
by Shari Barrett - Sep 8, 2017

There are many reasons why THE FANTASTICKS original off-Broadway production ran a total of 42 years and 17,162 performances, making it the world's longest-running musical which continues to enchant audiences around the world. Aside from it being a 'Romeo and Juliet' type story we can all relate to, but with a much happier ending, its most well-known song, 'Try to Remember,' speaks to everyone wanting to go back to a time in our lives when all things were much more simple, romantic, and totally carefree.

by Shari Barrett - Dec 5, 2014

The Pirates of Penzance with music by Arthur Sullivan and libretto by W. S. Gilbert is an hilarious and hopeful farce concerning Frederic (Chris Yeschenko), who, having completed his 21st year, is released from his apprenticeship to a band of tender-hearted pirates led by the hot-shot Pirate King (the ultimate pirate Drew Fitzsimmons, who co-directed and choreographed the production with Michael-Anthony Nozzi).

BWW Reviews: MAN OF LA MANCHA Offers Rocky Miller the Chance to Play His Dream Role
by Shari Barrett - Aug 2, 2014

Any actor can tell you what his or her dream role would be and how much they long to play it whenever they can. For Rocky Miller, his 20-year wait to play Don Quixote was well worth it as he fully embodies the heart and soul of Miguel de Cervantes and his Knight of the Woeful Countenance from the moment he takes to the stage in MAN OF LA MANCHA at the San Pedro Theatre Club, directed with emotional depth by Drew Fitzsimmons and choreographed for the small stage by Victoria Miller.

BWW Reviews: Laughter Abounds During TWELFTH NIGHT at Carlson Park in Culver City
by Shari Barrett - Jul 20, 2014

While there is speculation that Twelfth Night was written for the 12th night of Christmas by request of Queen Elizabeth, a holiday which celebrates revelry by turning the world upside down, with masks, music, dance, celebrating a moment where servants are masters, masters are servants, and not all seems as it should be. While there is no proof for this speculation, it was certainly the author's and this production's comic inspiration. (more...)

BWW Reviews: CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF Presented With Tennessee Williams Original Script at Theatre Palisades
by Shari Barrett - Jun 16, 2014

CAT ON A HOT TIN ROOF was always the playwright's favorite among all his plays. Theatre Palisades is presenting the original version of the script as written by Tennessee Williams before Eli Kazan, who was already hired to direct both Broadway and the film version, forced him to re-write the script to conform to the mores in McCarthy era 1955. This compelling original version has been professionally produced only two times, in 1958 in London and in 1974 on Broadway with Elizabeth Ashley, Keir Dullea and Fred Gwynne. (more...)
