It seems fitting, in many ways, to return to live theater with such an incredible and incredibly well told story of optimism, humor, and resilience. Theater J’s season opener is a beautiful, thoughtful biography of a woman who can remind us of the value of intimate, loving relationships and how to keep going through moments of adversity – reminders we can all certainly benefit from right now.

Ferocious and funny, Ireland's play has lost none of its power, and gained even more relevance, ten years on from its Omagh debut

Talk about ‘spoiler alerts,’ there was a big one for me early in the opera, EURYDICE, by Matthew Aucoin to a libretto that he and Sarah Ruhl fashioned from her play of the same name, which had its Met premiere last night. Eurydice tells Orpheus “Don’t look at me,” which to me mirrored the scene at the end of the piece in the Underworld when Hades tells him that he can take her back to the land of the living if he doesn’t look back at her…which, of course, he does.

Oklahoma has made its way to Minneapolis. Daniel Fish took an old classic, with music by Rodgers & Hammerstein, and re-imagined how the dark and intense themes of this classic show meet the 21st century. This is the first stop for the Oklahoma tour after its 2019 Tony Award for Best Revival of a Musical.

U.B.U: A Cautionary Tale of Catastrophe has the tagline “Filth, Farts, Murder, Mayhem, Perverts, Puppets'. Richard Hilliar’s work delivers this promise with a raucous, energetic, entertaining and musical evening. The production has captured the pantomime genre superbly.

This production of The Cake may not be perfect, but what it lacks in thematic depth, it makes up for in confectionary charm and good intentions.

The Ephrata Performing Arts Center takes a step outside of the community theater comfort zone with their recent production of Hedda Gabler. While many theaters are catering to the greatest common denominator, EPAC continues to take risks and prioritize quality over quantity. This production is a perfect example of that mission.

On the night marking two years since theatres were forced to close their doors due to the pandemic, we are reminded of the power of theatre in Franz Xaver Kroetz’s Tom Fool. This poignant and disquieting play from 1978 neatly explores the crumbling of a family as social pressures thwart their ambitions and expectations.

Cleveland Play House's Artistic Director, Laura Kepley, in her comments in the playbill for ANTIGONE states, 'We originally programed ANTIGONE to be produced during the 2019-2020 season. The play was in its second week of rehearsals when we had to make the heartbreaking announcement that the production was cancelled.' The rampant COVID epidemic had struck the theatre world!

The production team did a great job of making the voices audible and the set inviting to the viewer's eye. There is merchandise to peruse in the lobby and I may be 'dating' myself by saying that the prices are a 'good bargain'. January can be a long and tedious month to put up with, so do yourself a favor and take in 'That Golden Girls Show: A puppet parody ' at the Orpheum Theater this weekend, you'll be happy to have something to smile about when you recall the days of Winter 2022.

Skiing on stage? That's not the only slippery slope in this clever adaptation of the 2014 Swedish movie about failing fathers and the, gulp, crisis of masculinity.

You see my dear ones, in the end, it’s all in his singing. Moss has one of those rare tonal qualities that can only be described as, “A tear in the voice” and it is this heartfelt vulnerability that draws you into his music as he travels from Hilariousville to Haunting Town and back again.

In alignment with 'Pink Lemonade's' lyrical content, the visuals highlight the conflict of Rayne's introspection as she is seen going from a party scene to deep into her thoughts. She's seen hoping that even though she's distracted with life that whenever she's ready the girl on her mind will always pick up the phone. Watch the new video now!

Go out and meet your friends. Half of my December was booked by friends, to catch up with them because I’m not able to spare time to meet them during the semester. What I also did was to catch up on sleep (not scientifically proven to work) and catch up on my favorite shows. Honestly, it’s enjoyable.

Book your next Botox session in advance because The Play that Goes Wrong is guaranteed to produce permanent laugh lines in all audience members. This incredible farce at Chicago's Broadway Playhouse at Water Tower Place is the perfect way to let go and truly escape both the drama and banality of everyday life. Though the humor largely centers around slapstick high jinks, this isn't your father's slip-on-a-banana-peel gag reel. Instead, this show combines perfectly timed prop and set mishaps with a wildly clumsy cast creating the perfect comedic storm.
by Rachael F. Goldberg - Dec 21, 2021
'Flight' is an experience that will stay with viewers, as it should. It's an especially poignant production in the aftermath of the US withdrawal from Afghanistan, though it's also a reminder that stories like Aryan and Kabir's existed long before, and will continue to exist long after the political and military dust have settled. But Studio's production is a beautiful, clever presentation of a heart wrenching story, and perfectly captures the love, hope, and loss that drives refugees - and all of us.

It is spectacular to see performers execute an iconic show steeped in its history. It’s even more spectacular when you reach those moments that allow you to feel like you were there based on the way the performers connect to the music and transport you to when it began. This production pulled out all the stops to be true to the music of Fats Waller
