ARSENIC AND OLD LACE to Open Albuquerque Little Theatre's 86th Season
by Nora Dominick - Jul 21, 2015

Albuquerque Little Theatre will open their 86th season with the laugh-a-minute, screwball comedy ARSENIC AND OLD LACE by Joseph Kesselring. The show revolves around the Brewster family, descended from the 'Mayflower,' but now composed of insane homicidal maniacs. The hero, Mortimer Brewster, is a drama critic who must deal with his crazy family and local police in Brooklyn, NY, as he debates whether to go through with his recent promise to marry the woman he loves. His family includes two spinster aunts who have taken to murdering lonely old men, a brother who believes he is Theodore Roosevelt and digs locks for the Panama Canal in the cellar of the Brewster home, and a murderous brother who has received plastic surgery to conceal his identity and now looks like horror-film actor Boris Karloff. Classic farce at its best!!

BWW Review: 'M' Is For Misfire
by Nancy Grossman - Apr 18, 2013

The Huntington Theatre Company world premiere of RYAN LANDRY'S 'M' is a design triumph, but the plot misfires. Karen MacDonald is an anxious menace skulking around the periphery, casting giant shadows, and Larry Coen milks every drop of humor from his multiple roles, but playwright Ryan Landry's story gets snagged between who he is and who he is trying to be.

Ryan Landry's 'M' Premieres at the Huntington, 3/29
by Kelsey Denette - Mar 22, 2013

The world premiere of Ryan Landry's "M", legendary Boston artist Ryan Landry's inspired take on Fritz Lang's film noir masterpiece M, begins at the Huntington Theatre Company on March 29. Known for his blending of classic source material with his unique brands of comedy and imaginative theatricality, Landry (Mildred Fierce) transforms the iconic film about a city panicked by an elusive child killer into a surreal, screwball take that is both hilarious and heart-stirring. Directed by Caitlin Lowans (Turn of the Screw at Stoneham Theatre), the production's ensemble cast includes Gold Dust Orphans' regulars Larry Coen and David Drake, as well as Boston favorite Karen MacDonald (Good People and All My Sons at the Huntington) in the title role that made film actor Peter Lorre famous.
