BWW Interview: Theatre Life with Joy Zinoman and Logan Vaughn
by Elliot Lanes - Apr 17, 2017


Today's subjects, Joy Zinoman and Logan Vaughn, are currently living their theatre lives over on H Street at Mosaic Theater Company. They are the directors for the company's current South Africa: Then & Now repertory, which is comprised of the Athol Fugard's classic Blood Knot and the newer A Human Being Died That Night by Pumla Gobodo-Madikizela and adapted for the stage by Nicholas Wright. The rep represents the old and the new. It's appropriate that Mosaic's genius Artistic Director Ari Roth has enlisted a veteran director of over 50 years and a hot up-and-coming director to bring the plays to vivid life onstage at the Atlas Performing Arts Center.

BWW Review: BLOOD KNOT at Mosaic Theater Company
by Pamela Roberts - Apr 5, 2017


BLOOD KNOT is an apartheid-era Cain and Abel tale of half-brothers, Morris and Zachariah, who share a mother and a history, but have been separated by color and opportunity. Morris, whose light skin has allowed him to pass as white within South Africa's codified racial stratification, has benefited from opportunities unavailable to his darker-skinned brother.

BWW Review: Bravura LES LIAISONS DANGEREUSES at Center Stage: A Welcome Antidote to Seasonal Good Cheer
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Dec 6, 2016


With Les Liaisons Dangereuses, we have byzantine complexity and unreal psychology. Doesn't sound like the sort of thing that would keep readers and theatergoers keep coming back. Yet somehow, almost inexplicably, this slightly pornographic extravaganza of obscurity and nastiness continues to claim our attention. Never mind why; some things just are that way.

BWW Review: Fresh Production, Unfresh Play: AMADEUS at Center Stage
by Jack L. B. Gohn - Sep 22, 2014


There is nothing wrong with the handsome production director Kwame Kwei-Armah has given us, from the amazing two-storey set by Timothy R. Mackabee to the decolletage-heavy, periwig-topped, bustle-bottomed, gilded costumes of David Burdick, to the sturdy performances of Bruce Randolph Nelson and Stanton Nash as Salieri and Mozart, to literally everything else associated with this resurrection of the show. I am convinced that the problem lies with the script itself.

BWW Reviews: Take a Worthwhile Trip to 4,000 MILES at Studio Theatre
by Jeffrey Walker - Mar 27, 2013


4,000 Miles is right at home at Studio Theatre: a crackling good contemporary script, first class actors, and a top notch production. If we gave out stars at Broadway World, I would give this show five out of five.
