Robert Dale Walker (of Rough Play theater company) has done an extremely sound job of directing such a bleak play. He has the show stripped to the bare essentials, allowing it to challenge ideology and faith.
The importance of the deaf and blind culture is kept in the limelight with The Miracle Worker, and this moving and unexpectedly funny production deserves to be a hit for SART.
The terrific live band is reason enough to see Bright Star, written by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell.
From the moment the lights come up we feel like we’re in Neil Simon’s version of ‘On Golden Pond.’ The woodsy scenic design by Sandra Lopez is absolutely beautiful. It is one of the production’s greatest assets.
As this year comes to a close, it’s the perfect time to reflect on some truly extraordinary theater ranging from splashy musicals, moving dramas and locally written plays.
With ‘The Love List’ we are reminded that the perfect person doesn’t exist, and it’s often our flaws that make us unique and lovable.
There’s a charming vintage quality to ‘Blithe Spirit’ that truly resonates. The show is onstage though May 19.
There’s an inherent passion behind this production. By the end, we find ourselves searching for that skylight in our own lives — a moment when we built something beautiful in an attempt to mend something terrible that we did for the sake of love.
Sometimes the very best stories simply drift along, serving as a delicate reflection of the ordinary. After all, for the most part, that is life. The poignant play On Golden Pond by Ernest Thompson — just such a story — opens Parkway Playhouse’s 2017 season. It runs through Saturday, through May 27.
Put on by a cast of local stage dwellers, productions are at the Magnetic Theatre Thursdays-Saturdays, from Oct. 1-24, at 7:30 p.m., nightly.
