BWW Review: AMAZING GRACE Musical Gets Another Life in Washington, DC
by Jennifer Perry - Dec 7, 2017

There's a lot to like at the World Stage Theater right now. While this production and any subsequent national tour stops is likely to find its most receptive audience in people with an upbringing and faith similar to my own, it's not only for those that can recite every verse of the title song (and many other hymns) without even thinking for a minute, or can identify with the idea of God showing His presence in their lives. The idea of putting yourself on a better path after losing your way is something most everyone, regardless of faith or lack thereof, can understand. Even if the whole idea sounds schmaltzy, at the very least there's reason enough to check out the many talented members of the young cast. (more...)

BWW Reviews: A MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET Classic Radiocast Twinkles with Christmas Spirit in Round Rock, TX
by Amy Bradley - Dec 10, 2017

A MIRACLE ON 34th STREET is presented as a classic radiocast that reignites our love for Santa Claus and examines the commercialized spirit in the heart of New York City during the busiest shopping crowds of the year - Christmas. Beginning with a drunken Santa too intoxicated to perform in the historic Macy's holiday Parade, Kris Kringle (played by Robert L. Berry) steps up to the float to wave at children and fill this required role for any festive affair. When the Parade ends, our story's newly-appointed Santa, Kris Kringle, keeps the magic going by serving as Macy's full-time Santa Claus announcing to all those around, that he is the real deal. Doris Walker (played by Sarah Marie Curry), the skeptic and realistic retail operations manager, reluctantly allows Kringle to infiltrate not only the Parade but Macy's itself., Children and parents everywhere come into Macy's requesting the perfect present except with the new Kris Kringle, if Macy's did not have the new toy, Kringle would send the family (and their money) to the competitor, Gimballs! Initially outraged by this unspeakable action, Gimball's eventually follows suit, creating some forced harmony between all THREE toy giants, Macy's, Gimballs and Santa himself. All seems harmonious and grand until Kris Kringle pronounces himself the real Santa Claus, much to the embarrassment of his bosses and new- found friends. With the trial of the century scheduled to determine Kris Kringle's sanity and the fate of one little girl's Christmas, Penfold Theatre Companies presentation of A MIRACLE ON 34TH STREET is a Christmas classic all ages can enjoy.
