BWW Review: ANNIE at Broad Brook Opera HouseBWW Review: ANNIE at Broad Brook Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - Nov 12, 2017

Plucky red-headed orphan, shaggy stray dog, a grouchy, but loveable billionaire and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Sound familiar?

This classic musical, which has been successfully presented around the world for the past forty years (the show premiered on Broadway in 1977) comes to the Broad Brook Opera House stage in Broad Brook, CT in the latest production by the Opera House Players (more...)

BWW Review: Opera House Players' THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM at Broad Brook Opera House
by Joseph Harrison - Feb 13, 2017

It's always a pleasure catching up with an old friend, hearing stories you haven't heard in years, laughing together about inside jokes and just feeling comfortable together. These feelings can often be the same when experiencing a theatrical piece again after a long absence. What makes it even more special is when you rarely get to see that friend (or that show). Such is the case, for me, with Alfred Uhry and Robert Waldman's THE ROBBER BRIDEGROOM, Broad Brook's Opera House Players' current production. (more...)

And in this production, the Opera House Players have done just that. (more...)
