Review: THE NIGHT BEFORE is the Perfect Gift at FreeFall Theatre Company Photo Tampa/St. Petersburg: Review: THE NIGHT BEFORE is the Perfect Gift at FreeFall Theatre Company
by Drew Eberhard - December 03, 2022

Allow me if you will a little indulgence as I set the scene. The year is 2020, the Global Pandemic that has riddled the world, and the country as we know it to shutter/ shelter in place. Like many Performing Arts Organizations, the folks at freeFall Theatre, known for their motto “Just escape awhile...” and their inventive way of producing live theatre, was struggling to find the best outlet to keep producing, while safely doing so for both performers and patrons alike. Producing Artistic Director Eric Davis and Director Matthew McGee began discussions about how to safely produce a Christmas Show that was full on Christmas versus just taking place around Christmas. In the past freeFall has produced works such as Peter & The Starcatcher, and The Lion in Winter that work for Christmas shows, but are not necessarily Christmas shows. They have also in the past produced A Christmas Carol, but being inventive, Eric Davis and company wanted to shake things up a little, and if any theatre is well known for doing just that, its freeFall. So you can say the show itself was born out of a challenge, and freeFall delivered ten-fold. The Night Before was such a hit, freeFall decided to bring it back this season for the second year in a row, with some new adaptations and new characters.


Review: MOULIN ROUGE! at the Eccles Theater is a Euphoric Heart-Filled Extravaga Photo Salt Lake City: Review: MOULIN ROUGE! at the Eccles Theater is a Euphoric Heart-Filled Extravaganza
by Tyler Hinton - December 03, 2022

The national tour of MOULIN ROUGE! THE MUSICAL at the Eccles Theater is not just “spectacular spectacular”--it is “spectacular” a million times over with dazzling scenic and lighting design that has to be seen to be believed, and even then it feels unbelievable. The entire production is a luscious extravaganza of visuals and music, thanks to the unparalleled artistic vision of Tony-winning director Alex Timbers and his collaborators. But it’s not just shiny veneer with no substance. Lying just under the surface is a pulsating heart of humanity, filled with love and pain and aspiration, driving the experience to euphoric heights.


Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at TAFE - Theatre Arts For Everyone Photo Central Pennsylvania: Review: A CHRISTMAS CAROL at TAFE - Theatre Arts For Everyone
by Andrea Stephenson - December 03, 2022

This creative adaptation of A Christmas Carol runs a little long, but the sheer joy of the cast members as they bring this story to life draws the audience in and highlights the show’s message of joy, love, hope, and compassion.

Review: JAGGED LITTLE PILL at Belk Theater Photo Charlotte: Review: JAGGED LITTLE PILL at Belk Theater
by Perry Tannenbaum - December 03, 2022

Overamped at Belk Theater, with an underwhelming set of grievances in Diablo Cody's adaptation of Alanis Morissette's megahit 1995 album, JAGGED LITTLE PILL generates more fire and heat than substance until it arrives at its #MeToo moment - and finds its heart.

TEMAN's RENT Ignites the Air with Artistic Fire and Communal Warmth Photo Indonesia: TEMAN's RENT Ignites the Air with Artistic Fire and Communal Warmth
by Rakaputra Paputungan - December 02, 2022

TEMAN (Teater Musikal Nusantara) did what many Indonesian thespians thought impossible: bring Jonathan Larson’s 1996 RENT to the country. The show’s themes — which proved to be just as relevant in 2022, if not more so — were powerfully brought to life through effective direction, heartrending performances, and delightful production design.

by Michael Rabice - December 02, 2022

The holiday season often brings about classic Christmas stories being retold and Charles Dickens' A CHRISTMAS CAROL is usually number one on most producer's short list. Instead, Buffalo's Irish Classical Theatre Company is presenting  Dickens' GREAT EXPECTATIONS in a newer version by Neil Bartlett. And while the brief  Christmas theme is glossed over, the familiar characters still are ripe for this creative theatrical evening.
