by BWW News Desk - Aug 7, 2017

In present-day North Florida, in a town called Starke, in a trailer park called 'Armadillo Acres' (though there are few armadillos and even fewer acres), there's a new tenant - and she's wreaking havoc all over Florida's most exclusive trailer park.

BWW Review: Next Stage's EURYDICE Shows Sarah Ruhl in her Early GloryBWW Review: Next Stage's EURYDICE Shows Sarah Ruhl in her Early Glory
by Andrew White - Nov 1, 2016

Playwright Sarah Ruhl, confronted with her beloved father's death, must have wrestled hard with how to honor his passing, without losing herself in the process.  Her play, Eurydice-in Jay D. Brock's production at Next Stop Theatre-is in some ways a witty take on the old Orpheus myth, but the wit is clearly in service of something more personal and contemporary. (more...)

BWW Review: EQUUS Chills as Constellation TheatreBWW Review: EQUUS Chills as Constellation Theatre
by Emma Kouguell - Jan 19, 2016

As a society, we often view extreme acts of 'passion,' whether it be motivated by anger, lust, or sadness, as negative, resulting in pain, or as something to be 'fixed.'
