BWW Review: Compelling, Well-Written and Performed SEX WITH STRANGERS at Cleveland Play House
by Roy Berko - Oct 31, 2016

As the lights come up on the thrust stage in Cleveland Play House's Outcalt Theatre, revealed was a large comfortable room, and a woman snuggled up on a chair by a free-standing fireplace, reading a book. Outside a large span of windows, snow could be seen cascading down. Suddenly a car is heard and headlights glared through the window. Pounding is heard at the door. Who is there? What's going on? Sounds like the opening scene of a mystery. But, no, this is the start of Laura Eason's SEX WITH STRANGERS, a charming and intriguing play of 'lust, love and the complex nature of identity in our digital-dominated era.' (more...)

BWW Review: Man's Best Friend Triumphs in SYLVIA at 710 Main Theatre
by Michael Rabice - Nov 8, 2015

A man and his relationship to his animal.... This notion has formed the basis of many books , TV sitcoms, and plays. There is  the imaginary rabbit in  Mary Chase's HARVEY, the goat in  Edward Albee's THE GOAT, and most recently man's best friend,  a dog named Sylvia in A.R. Gurney's hysterical 1995 play SYLVIA.

BWW Reviews: Mark Taper Forum's WHAT THE BUTLER SAW
by Don Grigware - Nov 25, 2014

Joe Orton's insanely insane world in 1960s England is no better displayed than in his third and final play What the Butler Saw now onstage at the Mark Taper Forum through December 21. A terrifically energized cast are on hand as is seasoned director John Tillinger, but things got off to a somewhat slow start opening night and really did not start to cook until Act II. It might be the width and depth of the Taper stage, which is not easy to cross that rapidly. I saw a production a couple of years back at the Odyssey, and the space being half the size, entrances and exits were quicker as was the tempo of the whole play. (more...)

BWW Review: LEADING LADIES at Salem Players is an Uproarious Good Time
by Kristen Price - Nov 15, 2017

It's fortuitous that I'm publishing this review on #LoveTheatre day because it must be said - I loved LEADING LADIES playing currently at Salem Players in Catonsville. This particular show with this talented cast of actors was a pretty fantastic way to spend a Sunday afternoon. For some reason, this was my first experience seeing a Salem Players show. As I've learned, this theatre company has been around for nearly 50 years. Judging by the time I spent there, I can certainly see why. (more...)

BWW Review: The Marriage of Alice B. Toklas by Gertrude Stein Is A Bag of Marvels
by Juan Michael Porter II - May 19, 2017

With much pretending at being someone who may or may not have been there - and tons of fun puns in this toiling word-play of a French farce - our minds are sent into a dizzying dervish of delight as the four main characters battle it out over who was a true genius and what the meaning of meaning amounts to once those geniuses have left the room.

BWW Review: Clever L.A. NOW AND THEN Shines at LACC
by Don Grigware - May 16, 2016

What a lovely surprise! I know that Bruce Kimmel is quite the clever gentleman and would not expect anything less than superlative work from his camp, but stepping down to the college campus level to review is not something that I particularly savor. These actors, with the exception of Robert Yacko and April Audia, are students, not yet professional performers as such. Needless to say, I was overwhelmed, not by the singing, but at least by the acting and overall drive and energy of the performers who delivered a mightily informative, nostalgic and fun show. It's called L.A. Now and Then, and it's a revue with songs and monologues that take a glance back at Los Angeles through the years and compare past with present cultural values. Kimmel as director maintains a great pace throughout: no lags; the show moves! (more...)

SU Drama Presents MEASURE FOR MEASURE, Now thru 4/12
by BWW News Desk - Mar 27, 2015

Hypocrites, beware! Such is the matter of this profound and intriguing late comedy by Shakespeare. When Duke Vincentio of Vienna inexplicably hands over power to Lord Angelo, a man of self-professed puritanism, he lays a trap that ensnares the falsely virtuous and rewards the just and true. Like most Shakespearean comedies, the course to the truth is neither smooth nor easy, but it is filled with engaging characters and extraordinary events, and even concludes with multiple marriages-however unlikely that may sometimes seem.

BWW Review: Superbly Staged ROMEO AND JULIET Just Closed at Archway
by Don Grigware - Mar 21, 2017

On Sunday March 19 I paid a visit to Archway Studio Theatre in Burbank for the matinee performance of Romeo and Juliet. It was the last performance and my very first time at Archway, who are known mainly for their presentation of the classics. Needless to say, I was blown way by the production, the direction and the entire ensemble who all invested themselves so dearly in their roles. (more...)

BWW Review: ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN ARE DEAD at Kentucky Shakespeare
by Keith Waits - Jan 5, 2017

Watching the current production of Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead from Kentucky Shakespeare was like seeing it for the first time, it's that fresh and smart. Tom Stoppard's post-modern masterpiece is absurdist and existential; catnip for academics in search of thesis projects concerning mid-Twentieth Century theatre, and director Amy Attaway's production is all of that, but also a deeply satisfying entertainment. You'll laugh a lot while you're in the theatre, and be thinking about the play long after you have left. (more...)

BWW Review: Cabrillo Presents the Quintessential FORUM
by Don Grigware - Feb 1, 2016

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum/book by Burt Shevelove & Larry Gelbart/ music & lyrics by Stephen Sondheim/Cabrillo Music Theatre, Thousand Oaks/directed by Lewis Wilkenfeld/choreographed by John Charron/through February 14 A Funny Thing Happened On the Way to the Forum is silliness personified from its zany characters and inane plot contrivances to its corny yet witty dialogue. It is clever farce set to music. Mistaken identities, zippity fast Exits and Entrances...it has no rhyme or reason but is terribly, terribly funny with belly laughs about every two seconds. Cabrillo's current revival is astonishingly good with a delicious cast and superlative direction from Lewis Wilkenfeld. It's a practically flawless production. (more...)
