For the past few years I have had a tradition of driving out to Manheim, Pennsylvania, to spend a day at the Pennsylvania Renaissance Faire. It's been a way for me to forget about the stresses of everyday life during some crazy times. But now that I'm living in New York, I decided it was time to give a new Renaissance Faire a try.

A mesmerizing tale of gothic horror and suspense, THE JIGSAW BRIDE transports the audience to the world of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein, where 100 years have passed and something or someone lies in the ruins of the infamous Castle of Dr. Frankenstein. A perfect production for crisp fall nights that invites us to question what makes us (in)human and to explore the depths we will go to in the name of scientific discovery.

BWW Review: A Refreshing Romp: MSMT’s ROCKY HORROR SHOW at Cadenza MSMT returned to Freeport’s Cadenza last night for a three-show run of the 1973 Richard O’Brien cult classic, The ROCKY HORROR SHOW.

THE LION IN WINTER by James Goldman currently playing at the Georgetown Palace Playhouse is a rare treat. The show, a favorite of mine for decades, hits all the marks; historical figures, witty dialogue and epic family dysfunction that makes for an entertaining evening at the theatre. Written in 1966, the play met with marginal success on Broadway, but in 1968 when the movie adaptation, starring Katherine Hepburn and Peter O'Toole debuted, THE LION IN WINTER became an instant classic, garnering Goldman an Oscar for his script.

Throughout the long, dark days of the pandemic, artists everywhere have dreamed of the day when they can bring their creativity into the light once again and share with their audiences a celebration of the joy, uplift, and healing inherent in the creative process. In Maine, as summer blossoms, arts organizations return to their mission one by one, and, perhaps even more amazing, new ones are born. Hogfish Regenerative Arts is one such new venture, born of its creators, Edwin and Matt Cahill’s, desire to create “an artist sanctuary and body of work dedicated to restoring creative and physical health to individuals, communities, and our earth.”

For Andrew Barth Feldman, the Disney parks were a metaphor for an escape from a life that has seen extraordinary highs and tragic lows. There has been a lot of incident in his brief nineteen years, and through all the change, Disney has been the glue that held it together. In particular, Disney was a special bond to his mother, whom he lost, in true Disney fashion, at a young age. The show opens with the Sherman Brothers song from The Carousel of Progress, “There’s a Great Big Beautiful Tomorrow” and it leads to the central premise of the show: how do you build a world based on the future when the future is constantly changing? This is definitely not kid stuff. That is an exceedingly profound metaphor for life. Out of the mouth of babes.
