BWW Review: LIZZIE at City-Theater
by Greer Firestone - Sep 13, 2017

Aisle Say would never be so trite as to suggest the goth-rock musical LIZZIE, now playing 'live' at City-Theatre is a 'killer' or 'cutting edge' or 'slays the audience'. Of course not. I am much too circumspect and erudite to cave to formulaic nonsense. (more...)

by Jeffrey Ellis - Aug 8, 2017

Take for example, Robert Harling's Steel Magnolias - the somewhat nostalgic and Southern-fried seriocomic tale of six women who gather every Saturday morning in a Louisiana beauty shop to have their bouffants teased, their shags trimmed, popular recipes swapped and the lives of their neighbors vivisected in the relative sanctity of a women-only establishment - that has been a part of contemporary literature since its 1987 premiere at off-Broadway's WPA Theatre 'up north' in New York.

BWW Review: Provocative TROUBLE IN MIND by Alice Childress Gets Timely Revival at Theatricum Botanicum
