Stages at CCC’s MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is Something Special

Professional Theatre May 6, 2014 at 7:56 pm 0 comments

Stages’ production of MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING is a hilarious and fascinating musical romance as well as a poetic, witty comedy in the rich, historical Shakespeare-kind-of-way. It’s pleasurable education for all ages. I saw Stages’ MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING and loved the up-do! This is from a guy who says, […]

Professional Theatre March 3, 2014 at 9:23 pm 0 comments

STAGES at Camden County College’s professional production of THE HOT L BALTIMORE is forceful at times–full of energy at the beginning and calm at the end. That’s okay. It’s supposed to be. Director Marjorie Sokoloff proves this production of Lanford Wilson’s play has all the symptoms associated with a Bipolar Disorder—or […]

But you don’t have to understand 19th century literature to appreciate and enjoy Stages at Camden Community College’s production of GREAT EXPECTATIONS.

HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE: A Harrowing Tale of Forbidden Love at STAGES at CCC

Around the Region March 4, 2013 at 9:20 pm 0 comments

Paula Vogel’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play, HOW I LEARNED TO DRIVE is naturally not about learning to drive as it is learning all about life’s often hard truth, as well as the wrong truth (the lies we tell ourselves), and the sad truth about human failings. It’s a play about mistaking […]

THE MOUSETRAP by Agatha Christie produced by STAGES at Camden County College directed by Donald Swenson in Blackwood, New Jersey is sadistically enthralling.

Around the Region March 5, 2012 at 10:12 am 0 comments

Before we start the review, we need a rehearsal. I must teach you this. It goes: dum DUM DUM! Don’t confused! It’s not dumb, DUMB , DUMB, it’s dum DUM DUM! It is the 3-tone, brass movie-music fanfare which indicates something mysterious and dangerous is associated with the name just […]

Jean-Baptiste Poquelin was a very funny man. Living a short but successful life from January 15, 1622 to February 17, 1673, we know him better by his pen name, Moliere. THE SCHOOL FOR WIVES was his 1662 return to a theme which had won him great favor the previous year […]

Who knew art and science could be so funny? Steve Martin, that’s who. And, Director Marjorie Sokoloff. And, the audience at yesterday’s matinee at Stages’ outstanding production of Steve Martin’s PICASSO AT THE LAPIN AGILE at Camden Community College. I wish I had seen it sooner.

From Shakespeare with Love, 60s Style

Around the Region May 9, 2011 at 6:35 pm 0 comments

AS YOU LIKE IT is one of Shakespeare’s most charming comedies, especially when performed by a youthful and exuberant cast as in the production at Camden County College in Blackwood. The play embodies many plot devices often used by the Bard: banished people, fraternal treachery, a girl disguised as a […]

LITTLE WOMEN: THE BROADWAY MUSICAL Offered by Stages at CCC

Around the Region December 5, 2010 at 9:58 am 0 comments

LITTLE WOMEN ran for only 137 performances on Broadway, kept alive for that long, I suspect, by mothers and grandmothers who had read and loved the book and wanted to share the joy with their daughters and granddaughters. Stages tried, they really did, but the music, lyrics and book were […]

STAGES at Camden County College’s PILLOWMAN: This is No “Fluff” Piece

Around the Region November 7, 2010 at 2:10 pm 2 comments

Director Marjorie Sokoloff, Artistic Director of Stages and Head of Theatre Department at Camden County College, combines horror and comedy on a set that is at first seemingly simple. Pillowman, a three act play written by Martin McDonagh, is a chiller with an odd sort of tickle. Katurian,the protagonist (played […]
