BWW Feature: ALLEY THEATER ARTS CARAVAN at The Alley Theater
by Keith Waits - Aug 7, 2017

I have been active in the Louisville theater arena for right at twenty years, having gotten started in the chorus of a musical in Anchorage way back in 1997. Since then I've played dream roles and bit parts in more shows than I can count and I've been in four feature films. As a director, I've been able to put my personal stamp on both classic and lesser known plays. I've developed strong relationships with more local theater companies than I can name, served on the board of directors for three of them, and have been writing theater reviews for over ten years (including for Arts-Louisville.com). I've even recently become part of a sketch comedy group. All of this with no special training, no theater degree, and no real qualifications beyond a love of the stage. (more...)

BWW Review: Fortune Wags Its Tail at Element Theatre Company's SYLVIA
by Kristen Morale - Aug 13, 2017

With time spent on Broadway, off-Broadway and on stages from France to China, A.R. Gurney's Sylvia is now in performances at Elements Theatre Company at Rock Harbor. It is the epitome of taking something that is seemingly normal and turning it into a drama-filled, heartfelt tale of what it means to be (and feel) human. Directed by Danielle Dwyer, CJ and in memory of the late Gurney, this show truly goes above and beyond to tell a story that is so much more than that of a dog who finds an aging man in the park, followed by his wife's jealousy of his affection towards this stray. It is a touching story about the indisputable need to be loved, and how figuring out why we love the way we do concerns so much more than the bond man shares with his canine friend. (more...)
