    It’s a Sin to Miss WDL’s Production of TO KILL A MOCKINGBIRD

    Harper Lee’s To Kill a Mockingbird is one of my all-time favorite novels. As an English teacher, I look forward to sharing this novel with my students every year. It is because of my love of this iconic novel that I avoided Christopher Sergel’s adaptation for the stage. Not that […]

    That Within Which Passes Show—HAMLET in the Hedgerows

    Like last season, Rose Valley’s Hedgerow Theatre has chosen one of the Bard’s tragedies as their Fall thriller. And HAMLET is full of thrills and chills as we watch the goings on in Elsinore Castle. Directed by Dan Hodge, Shakespeare’s tragedy about the Prince of Denmark unfolds on the Hedgerow […]

    ACCOMPLICE at Barley Sheaf: Hint…The Butler Didn’t Do It

    Loving a good mystery and taking pride in figuring things out rather quickly, ACCOMPLICE had me leaving the theater pondering well after curtain call. The ingenious plot shifts in so many directions, you’ll feel like you’re on a tilt-a-whirl. The production of ACCOMPLICE, brilliantly played by The Barley Sheaf Players […]

    THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW: The Tradition Continues at Bucks County Playhouse

    One of the great traditions at Bucks County Playhouse for many years was the annual production of THE ROCKY HORROR SHOW. With the rebirth of the historic theatre (celebrating their 75th year!) the tradition was reborn, and continues this year. And I have to say this is one of the […]

    THE MIRACLE WORKER: Classic Drama Featured at Steel River

    Sometimes I think it’s very risky for any theatre to do the classic pieces. Audiences have preconceived notions of what they will be seeing, and at the very least know the storyline, so it’s difficult to surprise or thrill the audience. However, when it’s done well, audiences will be very […]

    Resilience and Redemption at The Road Company’s Triumphant THE COLOR PURPLE, a Musical About Love

    Audio Voiceover. “Unlike any other art, the total, intense focus of theatre is on the human being, his or her existence, and his or her relationship with life. It is a part of human nature to need to examine who we are in relationship, with where we are. Consequently, basic […]

    ALONE TOGETHER: Chapel Street Players Open 80th Season with Light Fare

    When one thinks of the 1980s, one thinks of the extravagance of the time period. Everything was over the top from clothing to music to hair. The 80s were a time when both parents worked and pursued creative outlets. Children were given every opportunity to be a part of everything. […]
