by Kyle Christopher West on November 14, 2017 in San Antonio

Not only does actress Karen Ziemba have a career for the history books, but her work in 2017 alone has been jam-packed with credits most performers would trade their career for.

Now back on the road in IRVING BERLIN'S WHITE CHRISTMAS, I caught up with the actress about her transition from song-and-dance starlet to larger-than-life character roles. (more...)

A DOLL'S HOUSE Opens At Classic Theatre! A DOLL'S HOUSE Opens At Classic Theatre!
by BWW News Desk on October 23, 2017 in San Antonio

Set in 1950's America with a Mad Men flair, The Classic Theatre's production of A Doll's House written by Henrik Ibsen in 1879, is the modern tragedy that changed theatre forever. It opened the door to realism. So explosive was the message, that a marriage was not sacrosanct, that a man's authority in his home should not go unchallenged, and that the prime duty of anyone was to find out who he or she really is and to become that person, that the play shocked audiences then and still resonates with them today. Sometimes the perfectly presented family and home are not what they seem Sometimes finding your home means finding yourself first. (more...)
