The Wild West gets a little wilder in this unique, immersive adaptation of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, adapted by Alisa Stewart. Set in 1864 in the fictional town of Brannock, Montana, evil lurks in the shadows of an otherwise bustling gold town as old friendships break down, and new mysteries unfold. Live projections, moving sets, and a working saloon surround the audience that moves through the play in promenade fashion. Explore Dr. Jekyll's laboratory, Hastie Lanyon's dry goods at Lanyon's General Store, or order a drink from Jolly at Millie's Saloon, all while enjoying a classic gothic tale of good versus evil.Â

Review: Shakespeare's TWELFTH NIGHT Offers Songs of Love and Laughter in the Beautiful Woods at Theatricum Botanicum
by Shari Barrett - Aug 13, 2019
William Shakespeare's rollicking and ever-popular comedy of mistaken identity, TWELFTH NIGHT, brings its magical combination of mischief, madness and romance into the outdoor amphitheater at Will Geer's Theatricum Botanicum this summer where it plays in rep through September 28. Written in 1601 and first seen in the Inns of Court shortly after Christmas (hence, the title), the holiday was celebrated as a festival during which everything was made delightfully topsy-turvy, much like the world of the play's Illyria. And you could not ask for a more ideal cast of characters to bring The Bard's non-stop, high energy hijinks to life.

There is tremendous support in our audience for bringing younger people into the theatre, and we're having some success in that regard. I'm positive, but I'm also unsure of where we are headed with digital technologies and what they mean for our industry and the larger culture. Our challenge, I suppose, is to be adaptive to what comes along without giving up the wisdom and glories of the past.

80'er festen har ramt operaen i Kobenhavn i skikkelse af Flashdance the musical. Endnu en gang har One and only musical teater sat alle sejl til for at give tilskuerne en stor teateroplevelse og det ligger da ogsa rigtig godt ud, da man bliver smidt lige tilbage til 80erne med sangen What a feeling, man kan ligesom se det hoje har og benvarmerne for sig. Sicilia Gadborg er sod og fin i sin rolle som Alex Owens hun har en fraekhed og en sodme som passer godt til rollen. Silas Holst spiller den anden store hovedrolle som Nick Hurley, men det er lidt som om, han forsvinder i maengden og aldrig rigtig kommer ud over scenekanten. Jeg tror ikke, at det er SilasÂ´s skyld men mere, at det desvaerre ikke er et rigtig godt manuskript, de har at arbejde med. Nogle af dem der skiller sig ud er de 3 biroller Mrs. Wilder og Louise spillet af Nastja Arcel. Der er bid i de roller og nogen man husker, nar lyset bliver taendt i salen efter fremkaldelsen. Hannnah Owens som spilles af Ditte Grabol er en anden figur, som man husker. Ditte besidder et talent, der gor, at selv de mindste roller behersker hun og hendes rolle var en af de eneste, som jeg troede 100 procent pa. Ellers er stykket fuldt af flotte danseoptrin og dette kan de virkelig og det er der festen virkelig begynder og de har salen i deres hule hand. Sa er det jo en fest, at der er sa meget 80'er pop samlet pa et sted. Jeg vil gerne fremhaeve Rikke Hvidbjerg, som har en fantastisk stemme og som virkelig er et scoop for forestillingen. Desvaerre synes jeg, at Flashdance bliver lidt af en flad oplevelse, som aldrig rigtig kommer helt i gang.

Birth; marriage; death. And everything in between. As day breaks on another ordinary day, the townsfolk of Grover's Corners go about their business: newspapers are delivered; people go to work; gardens are tended to. And a boy and girl fall in love. But as life's events unfold and a community comes together, one question remains: 'do any human beings ever realise life as they live it? Every, every minute?'
