BWW Review: YOU DON'T PAY? WE WON'T PAY!, York Theatre Royal
by Sarah Ryan - Oct 10, 2018

Developed in partnership with York Theatre Royal, Fo's farcical comedy follows two working class women who take advantage of a riot at a local supermarket to stock up their cupboards, and the chaos that ensues as they concoct increasingly outlandish plans to hide their crime from their straight-laced husbands.

BWW Review: A FOX ON THE FAIRWAY at Elmwood Playhouse
by Peter Danish - May 17, 2018

Ken Ludwig had a worldwide hit with 'Lend Me a Tenor,' which was a throwback of sorts to The Madcap physical British stage comedies of yesteryear. According to all the press materials for his play, 'A Fox on the Fairway,' this play is another tribute to the great English farces of the 1930s and 1940s. And truth be told there are many valid comparisons, but the comedy is of a far less polished and elegant form in his play (the female love interest actually says she needs to kiss her paramour's 'balls' for luck). This kind of low brow humor is found everywhere in 'A Fox on the Fairway.' (more...)

BWW Review: Enjoy the Comedy&Tragedy of ROMEO&JULIET whilst Sitting Outside on a Minnesota Midsummer Night in Classical Actors Ensemble's Free Shakespeare in the Park
by Jill Schafer - Jun 30, 2018

The best thing about summer in Minnesota is outdoor theater. And the lakes, of course. But I love nothing more on a lovely summer evening than to sit outside in a park or a garden somewhere while someone tells me a story. Classical Actors Ensemble continues their tradition of bringing Shakespeare to metro area parks (for free!) with ROMEO AND JULIET, playing at Lake of the Isles and many other parks through mid July. Previously I've seen CAE do Shakespeare's comedies, and found them to be so fun, playful, and almost interactive, the way Shakespeare was meant to be. This is the first time I've seen them do a tragedy for their fun summer outdoor play. But Romeo and Juliet is pretty much a rom-com, until somebody dies, so it's still fun and playful in the beginning. And while maybe the tragedy doesn't have quite the same effect when the sun is softly setting, the birds are chirping, and the wind is blowing through the leaves on the trees, it's still the best way to see Shakespeare.

BWW Review: GALA Hispanic Theatre's DANCING IN MY COCKROACH KILLERS is a Breath of Fresh Air
by Sam Abney - Jun 14, 2018

Summer theater offerings in D.C. tend to pull out all the stops to draw Washingtonians off of the streets and into their venues. This shouldn't be a difficult sell if there is air conditioning: after all, escaping the humidity is a high priority for people surviving summer in the District. Nonetheless, theaters pack their summers with big exciting productions from Signature's Scottsboro Boys to Arena Stage's upcoming Dave to an unknown little show known as Hamilton at the Kennedy Center. Amongst all of The Madcap mayhem for biggest summer smash, GALA Hispanic Theatre has delivered a small and intimate musical that could be one of the best times you have in D.C. this summer.

BWW Review: SLOW FOOD World Premiere at Merrimack Repertory Theatre
by Nancy Grossman - Jan 23, 2019

You might go home hungry, but you'll have your fill of belly laughs at Wendy MacLeod's SLOW FOOD now having its World Premiere at Merrimack Repertory Theatre in Lowell. We've all been there, sitting in a restaurant, starving, and waiting what seems like eons before the waiter sashays over to introduce himself. "Hello, I'm Bryce - like the Canyon - and I'll be taking care of you." This is the premise and the situation for the couple having a bad first day on their anniversary trip to Palm Springs. Their gratification is seriously delayed, but we get 95 minutes of delicious comedy. (more...)

BWW Review: PERFECT ARRANGEMENT at DezArt Performs - What's In Your Closet?
by Kay Kudukis - Jan 15, 2019

Everyone has a secret or two stashed away. We hide them for fear of being shamed or in some cases, worse. Shame is solely the product of 'agreed upon' societal 'norms'; if we don't fit into any given box then we have an Achilles heel, something others can use to hurt or destroy us. Mean girls, churches, and government have always been exceptionally good at shaming. (more...)

BWW Review: ANYTHING GOES at Music Theater Works
by Emily McClanathan - Aug 20, 2018

In a charming take on Cole Porter's 1930s musical, Music Theater Works' ANYTHING GOES delivers lively big-band music, crowd-pleasing dance numbers, and a hearty dose of nostalgia. Directed by Rudy Hogenmiller and choreographed by Clayton Cross, a strong ensemble cast brings to life an eclectic assortment of characters-nightclub singers, undercover gangsters, hapless young lovers, a drunken businessman, a bumbling aristocrat, and more. Brought together in the confines of a transatlantic ocean liner, mischief and misunderstandings abound in true P.G. Wodehouse* fashion, until a series of farcical ruses brings about the inevitable happy ending, complete with a wedding (or three). (more...)
