BWW Review: Playhouse's BEST LITTLE WHOREHOUSE Entertains Despite Lackluster Material
by Jeff Davis - Aug 1, 2016

This particular production is winner. There's plenty to enjoy about The Playhouse's production of The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas. The campy, over-the-top farce is wildly entertaining, and overall it's a feast for the eyes and ears. (more...)

BWW Review: WHOREHOUSE Delivers Outstanding Performances at the Playhouse
by Backstage Bunny - Jul 11, 2016

While I have reservations about the show itself, the latest production of 'The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas' is probably the best directed show I have seen at the Playhouse. Director David Nanny has coaxed some outstanding and highly amusing performances from his cast, turning a mediocre musical into a highly enjoyable show - particularly in the first half. (more...)

by Nancy Grossman - Jan 20, 2016

Fresh Ink Theatre Company presents the inaugural production of Ginger Lazarus' THE HOUSEKEEPER at Boston Playwrights' Theatre. The four-character drama includes a ghost, but she's less scary than the teenage girl struggling with her grief and growing pains. An inept father relies on the new housekeeper to return order to their chaotic existence, but she has to straighten out her own closet if she is to succeed. (more...)

Photo Flash: First Look at TOMMY at The Playhouse
by Jeff Davis - Aug 7, 2014

The Who's Tommy opened at The Playhouse - San Antonio last weekend, and BroadwayWorld is pleased to share these stellar photos from the rocking production. Tommy is an electrifying 1960s rock opera, told through the legendary music of The Who. It chronicles one child's 'Amazing Journey' from boy to man and misfortune to fame. (more...)

BWW Reviews: TOMMY is Packed with Rocking Vocals
by Jeff Davis - Aug 7, 2014

Excuse me if I'm suffering from a case of deja vu. Last year, theatergoers in Central Texas got to see Austin's Zach Theatre and San Antonio's Playhouse duke it out with competing productions of Les Miserables. I was fortunate enough to see both productions, and in the battle of the barricades, I declared a draw. Naturally, Zach and The Playhouse's current production of The Who's Tommy feels like a rematch. So which has the pinball wizard winner? The answer is: both. While Zach's production is a feast for the senses, The Playhouse's production places its focus squarely on its awe-inspiring cast.

BWW Reviews: The Playhouse Presents a Beautiful, Effective, Understated RAGTIME
by Jeff Davis - Aug 1, 2013

Everyone loves a good "The Show Must Go On" story, and they don't get much better than the story of The Playhouse's current production of Ragtime which plays The Charline McCombs Empire Theatre now through August 18th. Though originally planned for The Playhouse's Russell Hill Rogers Theatre, plans changed after the recent San Antonio flood damaged the historic structure, causing the need for major repairs. While a late change in venue is a major curve ball for any production, any problems that it may have caused are nowhere to be seen. While stripped of the grandiose design which usually accompanies the epic American musical, The Playhouse's version is still quite alluring and emotionally stirring. (more...)

BWW Reviews: LITTLE SHOP OF HORRORS at The Vex Buds But Doesn't Bloom
by BWW News Desk - Jun 8, 2013

Early on in Little Shop of Horrors, the crowd favorite musical now playing at the Sheldon Vexler Theatre, forlorn florist Seymour Krelborn begs his strange and interesting but dying new plant, dubbed the Audrey II, to bloom. The same pleas could be asked of the show. While bolstered by some talented and gifted performers, this production sadly remains a seedling that doesn't completely sprout. (more...)

BWW Reviews: 9 TO 5 at Woodlawn is More Work, Less Play
by Jeff Davis - Sep 2, 2012

Have you ever been in an office meeting where you realize that every person on your team is incredibly smart, talented, and full of good ideas, but for some reason those good ideas never really come together? Welcome to 9 to 5. Despite the abundant talents of the cast and crew, the strong source material, and a fun, frothy score, 9 to 5 could use some job coaching before it earns a promotion. (more...)
