Once Provocative Play Is Rarely Revived

By: Maria Revely - 08/20/2014
Once Provocative Play Is Rarely RevivedWhile the play has relevance to today’s veterans dealing with Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome, and sometimes resulting addictions, the material is dated.

By: Leanne Jewett - 08/17/2014
Still Surprising Audiences After 62 YearsThe murders in Agatha Christie’s mysteries are almost incidental. Though there is suspense and intrigue, there is no pandering to mayhem and horror. A puzzle is introduced, enhanced with complications, and finally solved through clever reasoning. The well-acted production at The Dorset Theatre Festival is classic Christie at its best.

By: Leanne Jewett - 08/16/2014
Fun and Frolics at Weston Theatre’s Second StageFor pure, unadulterated entertainment the juke box musical The Marvelous Wonderettes: Caps & Gowns can’t be beat. It’s polished and professional while retaining the freshness of youth and good-natured fun. It is basically a family-friendly burlesque, a humorous exaggeration of the teen years and loves of four young women.

Durang Off the Hook at Shakespeare & CompanyDirected by our friend the late Nicholas Martin of Williamstown Theatre Festival Christopher Durang's serious comedy Vanya and Sonia and Macha and Spike won a Tony for Best Play. Since then it has been widely produced and now through September 14 by Shakespeare & Company. Matthew Penn has directed an awesome cast in this side splitting gonzo riff on Anton Chekhov. It's a fresh, fun, zinger that rounds off a top heavy summer of the Bard in Lenox.

Vermont Production Highlights Turmoil of Broadway's Gypsys

By: Leanne Jewett - 08/15/2014
Vermont Production Highlights Turmoil of  Broadway's Gypsys  Innovative when it was developed in 1975, time has stolen some of the sizzle from this intimate dance-centered musical. The dance and music are still entertaining and the heart and passion of the young characters carry the show. Weston’s production is solid and professional with a talented cast.
