Eugene Lee Brings EAST TEXAS HOT LINKS To Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre CompanyEugene Lee Brings EAST TEXAS HOT LINKS To Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre Company
by BWW News Desk - Jun 28, 2019

Outgoing Artistic Director Kenny Leon and Kenny Leon's True Colors Theatre Company are thrilled to present Eugene Lee's East Texas Hot Links from July 16 to August 11, 2019. A few years after this play was originally produced in the early nineties, the nation was shocked by the brutal lynching of James Byrd, Jr. in Jasper, TX, a small East Texas town. The play itself is set in 1955, but the story continues to resonate as playwright Lee explores how we, as humans, feed off of each other as links in the food chain. (more...)

BWW Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Alliance TheatreBWW Review: A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM at Alliance Theatre
by Amy Zipperer - Sep 25, 2018

I consider myself a Shakespeare purist of the worst sort.  I wax snobbish at Shakespeare productions where Hamlet, language updated, sounds like a California surfer:  'Dude.  It was my uncle, Bro.'  I scoff at productions that situate themselves in some setting that's divergent from the original.  Macbeth cannot be a one-man show set in an insane asylum, and Midsummer is definitely no good in a Catholic school for girls.  But soft!  Methinks I've stumbled upon an anomaly that's making me rethink my whole purist disdain for the Creative Shakespeare Catalogue O' Crap.  That anomaly is Alliance Theatre's production of A Midsummer Night's Dream that's playing on an outdoor stage at the Atlanta Botanical Garden through October 21.  Though the production liberally infuses the Bard's most delightful play with a healthy dose of our 21st- century American vernacular, frames the action of the play in a moern garden being outfitted for a wedding, and cuts a significant portion of the original play, it's still pretty darn magical.  (more...)
