BWW Review: NOISES OFF at Theatre Three Photo BWW Review: NOISES OFF at Theatre Three
by Victoria Lee - Dec 3, 2019

Before the The Play That Goes Wrong there was Noises Off. There are few directors, designers, and actors that can take on this incredibly difficult work. The comedic timing must be perfectly executed, the set has to change into two different sets between acts, and it is very physically demanding. Theatre Three's production has mastered it. The opening night audience of Noises Off were left completely sore from laughter. I am happy to say it was one of the most hilarious productions I have seen here in DFW. For those of you that are unfamiliar with the classic, Noises Off by Michael Frayn is about a group of actors who are rehearsing the play Nothing On. Broken into 3 acts the actors rehearse the play in Act 1, perform it in Act 2 (shown from backstage), and performing again Act 3. The characters in this show are completely dysfunctional from who is sleeping with whom, drinking problems, divorces, etc. It's a proper madhouse set for disaster.

They say all the world is a stage, but perhaps the drama behind-the-scenes is where the real story is at. Up next at Theatre Three is Michael Frayn's hilarious door slamming farce, NOISES OFF. Directed by Kara-Lynn Vaeni, the smash hit comedy opens November 29 and runs through December 22. Tickets are on sale at www.Theatre3Dallas.com.

by Victoria Lee - Oct 15, 2019

Many have tried and failed to recreate the horror and passion of Bram Stoker's Dracula. Written in 1897, it has given us many a cheesy film, full of the bad special effects we have almost come to automatically associate with this classic story.

As previously announced, Theatre Three will kick off its 2019-20 season with a new spin on the classic tale, DRACULA (October 3 through October 27). You've long heard the story of DRACULA, everyone's favorite blood-sucking Transylvanian; but what stories might we learn through the eyes of his mysterious mistress Mina? This fresh adaptation of the Bram Stoker Gothic horror novel takes a deeper look into the Romanian folklore with an update on the undead. Be prepared for plenty of bloody plot twists and turns!
