Fads come and go, and aesthetic poetry is all the rage in town these days, especially among the maidens who have all become groupies of the self-styled poet Reginald Bunthorne - to the dismay of their macho military boyfriends. All but Patience, the virtuous village milkmaid who claims to have never loved anyone. She doesn't care for poetry much either, and, as it turns out, neither does Bunthorne! And while Bunthorne is infatuated with Patience, she falls for her childhood crush Archibald Grosvenor, another famous aesthete who attracts women even faster than Bunthorne. The rigid military men attempt to win back their ladies by comically attempting to be willowy poets, but, when exasperated Bunthorne challenges Grosvenor to give up the current aesthetic craze, he does so willingly - and everything backfires. Being common becomes the new celebrity, and all the ladies choose their old sweethearts, including Patience - proving after all, that every generation has its own temporary insanity!

Thank You, Places...Production Stage Manager KATIE VEGLIO
by Jeffrey Ellis - Jun 20, 2017

What's a stage manager? What do they do? What's their job? Seriously. Perhaps no job in the theater is as hard to define as that of a production stage manager and it's that blend of mystery, fear and total dependence that makes actors, directors, crew members, producers - you name it! - hold a really great stage manager in total awe and to revile someone who is (how do you say it, without offending anyone?) less than stellar in their position?

BWW Review: SISTER ACT Comes Bearing Gifts of Joyful Noise
by Robert Encila - Jul 2, 2017

Sister Act was a Hollywood blockbuster in the early 1990s, pegged as a family comedy that cashed in on the sheer star power of Whoopi Goldberg. A quarter of a century later, Whoopi remains at the helm--this time as a producer of the Broadway incarnation. While her illustrious charm sells almost everything she's in, Sister Act the motion picture doesn't begin to compare to the polished genius of this stage adaptation. (more...)

BWW Review: Battling Dementia in THE OTHER PLACE at Theatre Tuscaloosa
by David Edward Perry - Aug 10, 2017

'The Other Place' by Sharr White is a play exposing the struggle of adjusting to declining mental ability. It's a heart-tugging and at times funny story of a sharp and empowered woman fighting with a splintering mental health dilemma. White's writing brings to light the frustration of dementia. The play gives a voice to those suffering with dementia and the effect on their caregivers. 'The Other Place' opens with Juliana (Carol DeVelice) giving narration to her backstory as a successful scientist and businesswoman. With each line Juliana's mental stability slowly begins to crack like a broken window in a storm. Her confusion leads to a string of unsettling events. Juliana suffers lack of focus and speech, memory loss and repeated sightings of a young woman in a yellow polka dot bikini. She is stubborn as a nail and rejects any diagnosis, except her own hypochondriac self-diagnosis of having brain cancer. DeVelice gives limitless emotion into Juliana exhausting internal journey on stage. Scene after scene her frustration builds to boiling points to be forgotten by another train of thought. (more...)
