BWW Review: The Heart-Pounding HOLMES & WATSON Brings Murder-Mystery Drama to the Milwaukee Repertory Theater
by Kelsey Lawler - Nov 20, 2017

Suspense, plot twists, believability, a dash of humor, a satisfying finale that's what successful murder-mysteries are made of. When a play possesses all of these hallmarks and even boasts the company of everyone's favorite detective, Sherlock Holmes, a surefire hit seems elementary, my dear Watson. (more...)

BWW Review: MURDER FOR TWO Delivers Laugh-Out-Loud Murder & Mayhem at Milwaukee Repertory Theater
by Kelsey Lawler - Nov 16, 2017

Confession: They had to resuscitate me before I could write this post because I had died from laughter. Murder for Two, running now through January 14th, is a mix of music, murder, and mayhem - or as Joe Kinosian, the show's co-author and Milwaukee High School of the Arts alumnus, calls it: 'a love letter to musical theater, screwball comedy, and partnership.'

BWW Review: BASKERVILLE at Shea's 710 Theatre
by Michael Rabice - May 11, 2018

A modern take on an old classic can be risky business, and morphing a murder mystery into a comical farce sounds intriguing on the page. Micro sized casts have done wonders with Hitchcock's 'The 39 Steps' and Charles Ludlam's 'The Mystery of Irma Vep,' so it is no surprise that comic playwright Ken Ludwig, known best for his brilliant 'Lend Me A Tenor' should take a stab at the genre. His adaptation of the classic Sherlock Holmes mystery 'The Hound of The Baskervilles' has been shortened to 'BASKERVILLE' and opened last night at Shea's 710 Theatre. This production by MUSICALFARE unfortunately is high on hijinks and low on true comedy. (more...)

BWW Review: THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND Rings Down the Curtain on Bad Habit Productions
by Nancy Grossman - Mar 25, 2017

Bad Habit Productions is about to drop the final curtain after ten years of delivering award-winning theater, but they are not taking the easy way out. Director Dawn M. Simmons and an ensemble of eight actors make sense of Tom Stoppard's 1968 comedy Whodunnit, THE REAL INSPECTOR HOUND, even as they squeeze very bit of theatrical nonsense from this old chestnut. The troupe plays well together and looks like they're taking their roles seriously, despite their characters saying and doing ridiculous things. (more...)

BWW Review: SHEAR MADNESS at The Kennedy Center Celebrates 30 Years of Killings
by Sam Abney - Mar 16, 2018

Few productions can claim to be as much of an institution as Shear Madness is to Washington, D.C. Celebrating 30 years at the Kennedy Center, this show has become once of theater's most notorious tourist traps. This comedic caper whose plot can vary wildly each night incentivizes repeat viewings to those who are true converts, proving why more than 3.4 million people have attended this production. And although the stereotype-laden script struggles when viewed in 2018, the immersive Whodunnit remains an experience unique enough to justify Shear Madness's continued existence. (more...)

BWW Review: SOMETHING'S AFOOT at Dutch Apple Dinner Theater
by Rich Mehrenberg - Jan 12, 2018

There haven't been many popular mystery musicals over the years. I suspect it has something to do with a conflict of genres. Effective mysteries are cerebral. Audience members must perform mental gymnastics in order to outwit the detective. Musicals (with the exception of Sondheim) often prioritize emotions over logic. (more...)

BWW Review: Seattle Public Theater's Noir CHRISTMASTOWN Successfully Threads Parody Needle
by Amelia Reynolds - Dec 14, 2017

Can a Christmas noir be both gripping and funny? Can it succeed at all? Well, we know it can, because Christmastown returns to Seattle Public Theater as the second half of their holiday double feature. Not only does director Kelly Kitchens avoid cheesiness (which something like this could so, so easily have in spades), but she creates a yuletide, hard boiled mash-up that works both as a comedy and as a noir. Ring-a-ding-ding, we got us a perfect parody! (more...)
