Desert Rose Playhouse's production of POZ, by Michael Aman, is superbly acted and directed. The play is more o a sweet comic drama than the comedy, as which it was originally billed.

They say you only have one shot at a first impression, but in her Feinstein's/54 Below debut, Cady Huffman started her show twice. The double-take beginning was not attributed to a mistake or a technical difficulty; to the contrary, Tony Award-winning Huffman (THE PRODUCERS) was very intentional in her duality, indecisive to which of her entrances she preferred. It is only fitting that Huffman began her show with such a duplicitous start, as notions of the disparate pierced through much of her show, TOMBOY, SHOW GIRL. As that title suggests, through the 85-minute set, Huffman explored the binary of gender roles, particularly in show business. However, she also touched upon the juxtapositions of youth and experience, comedy and poignancy, weariness and the still-genuine love of show business she's maintained through decades of slogging through it.

Presented by Little Shadow Productions and Art Farm, and with music by Emmy Award-winning Paul Rudolph, ALL HALLOWS EVE is an immersive experience that compels its audience to adopt the belief of a child - to open up its collective mind and believe in something whose existence cannot be simply explained away like a magic trick. Although, this production is not just about suspension of belief; indeed, it is not meant for children at all.

BLK BOX PHX presents this wildly twisted holiday romp, offering up madcap mishaps, screwball comedy, troubadour elves with an attitude and a very different take on Santa! Not exactly the jolly Old Nick we all know and love. The aforementioned Santa is a rampaging home wrecker and enslaver of elves, who decides to bring his earthly mistress and two illegitimate children home to the North Pole. Not surprisingly, Mrs. Claus is not taking this lying down. The ensuing mayhem, including attempted poisonings, igloo cars, time travel and marital melees, makes for a decidedly dark and deranged Yuletide, with some holiday cheer sprinkled on top to remind us of the true reason for the season.

Can a church puppet be possessed by Satan himself, or is it just helping a teen express himself... badly?
by Stephi Wild - Jun 12, 2018
Something devilish is lurking in a church basement puppet show in Cypress, Texas...and his name is Tyrone. He may look like an innocent sock puppet, but, when he infiltrates the angst-ridden church youth group and takes possession of Jason's arm, all hell breaks loose.

Walt Disney would turn over in his grave if he saw 'Wonderland Wives' at Theatre Downtown. That's the point. It is supposed to break apart the crystal slipper. This is a in your face comedy poking fun at the idea of perfect princesses in the family friendly genre. This is a fairy tale full of raunchy characters with very real issues. 'Wonderland Wives' is a comical and bawdy tale of what happens after the final words in the storybook saying 'And they lived happily ever after'. It's saturated with puns, one-liners, and language that would make any magic carpet blush. These Disney princesses act more like very-desperate housewives instead of storybook icons. Buddy Thomas's writing cleverly balances an uncomfortable comedy found in these iconic storybook characters dropping shock value vocabulary. It's definitely not for children. It's bawdy, trashy and campy fun. The characters display language and behavior that you may not indulge in regularly. But dang it if you cant click away from laughing so much.

In Cyprus, Texas, all good children are taught to obey the teachings of the bible in order to avoid Satan's evil grip. But when students at the Christian Puppet Ministry put those teachings into practice, one devout young man's puppet takes on a mind of its own with consequences that no one could have expected. Described by The New York Times as "disturbing as it is uproarious,"  this hilarious fast-paced comedy features a foul-mouthed sock puppet named Tyrone who shows us that sometimes our deepest and darkest desires can fit like a glove. P.S. This show may feature puppets, but it is absolutely not for children. Seriously. You'll thank us later.

The Ghost Road Company is one of Los Angeles' premiere theatre ensembles dedicated to the creation of new work for the stage. The company is unique in its approach, having developed its own methods of collaborative development over many years. So when I heard they were reimagining the story of Oedipus, calling it JOCASTA: A MOTHERF**ING TRAGEDY conceived and directed by Brian Weir, I was intrigued to say the least. But after seeing the show, I am not quite sure how to write about it other than to say it was visually stunning to watch but confusing to the point of distraction.

Gatsby isn't the only person who knows how to throw a killer party. The band is popping, the drinks are flowing, and the guests are lit like cigarettes.

Audiences who want to be thoroughly entertained should get down to The Basement to see a sidesplitting production of Robert Askins' HAND TO GOD. Boasting one of the strongest ensembles of the summer, TheatreLAB and 5th Wall Theatre's co-production is certainly not for children or those easily offended. It is provocative and deliciously funny. It's the puppetry of AVENUE Q and the irreverence of THE BOOK OF MORMON-without song and dance numbers.
by Isabella Perrone - Apr 28, 2019
Dark comedy and puppets seem to be a natural link, given the number of film and theatre stories that have incorporated both in the last several years. Coal Mine Theatre's season-closing production of HAND TO GOD, written by Robert Askins, examines the duality of man and the struggle between good and evil through the eyes of a young teenager struggling with his emotions, family, and a particularly vocal and troublemaking hand puppet named Tyrone.
