No Script, No Set, No Costumes: BARELY LEGAL Brings Improv to City Theater Company

Around the Region, Reviews February 7, 2015 at 8:56 am 0 comments

Improvisation is one of the most difficult concepts in theater. The actors do not get the luxury of a script, a set, costumes, or the like. The actors get one thing…an idea. It’s their mission to turn that idea into a routine (usually comedic) that is engaging. It’s easy for […]

City Theater Company’s Twist on The Bard: BOMB-ITTY OF ERRORS

Professional Theatre May 6, 2014 at 8:37 pm 0 comments

With the celebration of William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday this year, it’s no surprise to see City Theater Company taking on one of his works — and it’s no surprise that they chose a twist on Shakespeare: BOMB-ITTY OF ERRORS, the award-winning hip-hop version of COMEDY OF ERRORS by Jordan Allen-Dutton, […]

BEST OF 2.0 at City Theater Company

Around the Region February 5, 2014 at 5:42 pm 0 comments

In its 20 year history, City Theater Company has had a tradition of putting on 10-minute, usually comic, plays, going back to its early days in O’Friel’s pub. The 10-minute plays not only showcase a selection the company’s performers, they also showcase local play writing talent — something you don’t […]

Post Your Own Review: GYPSY at City Theater Company

Around the Region December 18, 2013 at 7:47 pm 0 comments

I was not surprised to see that City Theater Company ( http://city-theater.tix.com/Schedule.asp?OrganizationNumber=1626 ) in Wilmington, Delaware, had a fresh and inspired take on the classic American musical GYPSY. While this is perhaps the oldest musical they have ever done, it does have Stephen Sondheim lyrics, so you knew CTC would […]

GYPSY: Like You’ve Never Seen It at City Theater Company

Around the Region December 9, 2013 at 10:13 pm 2 comments

At first sight, GYPSY, the legendary Sondheim Broadway musical, seems like an odd choice for City Theater Company. CTC is small and edgy, GYPSY is big and traditional. Look closer at GYPSY, though, and it starts to make sense. The Broadway show that opened in 1959 with Ethel Merman in […]

XANADU at City Theater Company: Campy Musical Fun on Roller Skates

Around the Region April 29, 2013 at 8:26 pm 0 comments

The 1980 film XANADU never quite lived up to the sum of its parts. It featured a heavy-hitting cast, including the wildly popular Olivia Newton-John, icon Gene Kelly, and music by Jeff Lynne (of Electric Light Orchestra fame) and John Farrar. But its roller disco theme made it seem dated […]

ON THE AIR: World Premiere at CTC

Around the Region February 27, 2013 at 9:21 am 1 comment

The premiere run of ON THE AIR, City Theater Company’s original musical about a 1941 radio soap, is something of an experiment. Still in the workshop stage, it’s a work in progress, and the company wants audience feedback to polish it up and help it evolve into a finished piece. […]

BAT BOY THE MUSICAL - City Theater Company

BAT BOY, THE MUSICAL is a Must-See Surprise

Around the Region December 5, 2012 at 6:18 pm 0 comments

City Theater Company’s BAT BOY, THE MUSICAL is a show that should top your list of holiday-season entertainment, even though (or maybe because, depending on your feelings about holiday shows) there is nothing “holiday” about it. It’s a masterfully done musical with an offbeat subject, black humor, sex and violence […]

CTC’s ANDREW JACKSON: BLOODY BLOODY Good!

Around the Region May 2, 2012 at 9:08 pm 1 comment

What do you get when you mix rock and roll, populism, and a touch of genocide? Wilmington’s City Theater Company’s BLOODY BLOODY ANDREW JACKSON, the over-the-edge tribute to the seventh President of the United States. BBAJ is an emo musical, the trappings anachronistic, with the ensemble dressed in modern-day fashion […]

City Theater Company Offers A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC

Around the Region December 3, 2011 at 9:22 am 0 comments

Opening night of City Theater Company’s production of A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC was a complete sell-out.  It is easy to understand why.  Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler’s musical, inspired by the movie “Smiles of a Summer Night”, written and directed by Ingmar Bergman , is a collection of wonderful songs linked […]
