If someone told you they had the secret to eternal life and they wanted to share it with you, would you take them up on the offer? It sounds pretty good, right? Living forever.

BWW Review: FREUD'S LAST SESSION - Verbal Sparring At Its Apex
by Gil Kaan - Jan 15, 2018

In FREUD'S LAST SESSION, playwright Mark St. Germain has written an intricate, very detailed script of what he imagines as a chance meeting between Dr. Sigmund Freud and C. S. Lewis. Set in 1939 London the day England entered World War II, the two very well-read men debate on the existence of God. Watching Martin Rayner as Freud and Martyn Stanbridge as Lewis butt heads in their reasonings of the existence/non-existence of God is much like watching a Wimbleton Tennis Final. (more...)

BWW Review: TRUE WEST at Susquehanna Stage Company
by Rich Mehrenberg - Jan 14, 2018

Considering it only has four characters and one setting, Sam Shepherd's True West has a lot going on. It is a show about the creative process, sibling rivalry and an exploration of the idea that the grass isn't always greener on The Other Side. The show is a character study, it has moments of great intensity, and moments of absurd humor. It is a difficult show to pull off, yet Susquehanna Stage Company hits all the right notes. (more...)

BWW Review: The Guthrie Theater's BLITHE SPIRIT is Pure and Pleasant Escapist Entertainment, an Exquisitely Written and Executed Comedy
by Jill Schafer - Dec 9, 2017

If you're looking for a fun, light-hearted, escapist night at the theater (and really, who isn't in need of that?!), look no further than the Guthrie's sublimely entertaining production of No l Coward's BLITHE SPIRIT. Featuring Guthrie favorites and newcomers in this perfect concoction of a cast, breath-takingly gorgeous design, and the witty words of one of 20th Century England's favorite writers of comedy, BLITHE SPIRIT will keep you warm with laughter on a cold winter's night, and make you forget about the seemingly endless despair happening outside of the theater walls (this is why I prefer to say in the theater as much as possible). BLITHE SPIRIT continues through January 18 and is a hilarious duet partner to that other ghost story across the hall. (more...)
