by Frank Benge - Sep 9, 2017

Robert Schenkkan, who has created a name for himself as a chronicler of American politics with his plays All The Way and The Great Society, is currently having a Regional Premiere of his new play BUILDING The Wall at UT in the Oscar G.

THE SPEED OF DARKNESS Gets Regional Premiere
by BWW News Desk - Sep 15, 2017

Some went willingly, others were drafted. Some protested and stayed home, some protested and left the country. Regardless, too many didn't come back. The Speed of Darkness honors those who went but came back forever changed to a country unprepared to acknowledge and honor them. A drama of riveting power, author Steve Tesich's examination of a mid-western family torn apart by a sordid past becomes a compelling metaphor for our country's historical amnesia when it comes to Vietnam.

BWW Review: GROUP rep Knocks LOST IN YONKERS Out of the Park
by Don Grigware - Sep 11, 2017

Neil Simon's Pulitzer Prize-winning dramedy Lost in Yonkers followed his autobiographical trio Brighton Beach Memoirs, Biloxi Blues and Broadway Bound. Critics started to take him seriously as a playwright with these plays for he was writing about his own family's life experiences. Lost in Yonkers is set in 1942 in Yonkers, New York where Grandma Kurnitz (Loraine Shields) and her daughter Bella (Roslyn Cohn) run the family confectionery store and live in a modest apartment upstairs. Now in a stunning production at the GROUP rep, Larry Eisenberg directs a perfectly cast ensemble who make the play shine brightly through October 22. Humor is Simon's best suit.
