Fifteen years ago, Tony Driscoll had this crazy idea for an extra bloody, comic, over the top, and irreverent take on Shakespeare's Titus Andronicus. At the time, GreenStage was still a young company known for Shakespeare in the Park. Titus was the company's first indoor production. It was a huge amount of bloody fun, and ever since then, we have wanted to take another stab at the show. Now, with 15 years of growth under our belt, it's time to resurrect Shakespeare's bloodiest comedy...uh... tragedy.

So why this kind of take on such a brutal play? Here's what director Tony Driscoll has to say, "Possibly, growing up in the latter part of the twentieth century desensitized me a bit. Maybe the great American tragedies of OJ Simpson, Jeffery Dahmer, and John Wayne Gacy, have affected me in an adverse manner. Beheadings and fecophilia are all the rage on the interwebs nowadays. Could that be it? I don't know. But judging from this cast and crew, who have taken my best and given me better - and sometimes (to my elation) given me much worse - I think perhaps I'm not alone."

Mature themes...and lots of blood - may not appropriate for young children!

Review: HELLO, DOLLY! at Village Theatre

In the musical theater world, there are classics and then there are Classics (with the big “C”). Jerry Herman’s “Hello, Dolly!” is certainly a big “C” Classic and I’m here to fight anyone who says different. It’s a delicious throwback to the Golden Age of musicals and certainly a star vehicle for the right star. And speaking of the right star, the current production of “Dolly”, currently playing at Village Theatre, shows just how good this Classic can be with the incredible Bobbi Kotula in the title role who proves that she’s not a star, but a Star!

Review: LES MISÉRABLES at The 5th Avenue Theatre

I’ve seen many productions of “Les Misérables” over the years, Dear Readers. I’ve seen local productions and tours. I’ve seen with the turntable and without. And, of course, I’ve seen good and not so good productions. And with all those viewings under my belt, I had to ask myself, “do I need to see it yet again?” And the answer I got last night was a resounding yes. When it’s a production as good as this one that can remind you how amazing the show is, you absolutely want to see it again.
