Heartbeat Opera Presents the ONE ACT FESTIVAL, Now thru 3/22
by BWW News Desk - Mar 18, 2015

Heartbeat Opera is a new company intent upon re-imagining opera in intimate spaces for a new generation.

BWW Reviews: Coeurage Theatre Company Finds the Art in ANDRONICUS
by Ellen Dostal - Aug 4, 2014

Actions that might come across as ludicrous on the page make one shrink with revulsion when viewed in the flesh, and within the confines of a small theater the effect is much like that of a horror show taken to the limit. Rape, murder, dismemberment, more murder, and about as much brutality as a person can handle in one sitting is what you'll find here. That Coeurage Theatre Company can stage it so that you can still appreciate the art in it is quite an accomplishment. (more...)
