“Sometimes, you are in one of those Peggy Lee “Is That All There Is?” states of mind and then you see a play that reminds you why you still go to the theater. Ages of the Moon is one of those plays.”
“Although seemingly a tortured treatise on reconciling faith and forgiveness, From Prague by Kyle Bradstreet actually comes off more as a travelogue about the charms of Czechoslovakia.”
“You gotta wonder what women did to David Mamet to deserve such misogynist treatment in the play Oleanna and now with Race.”
“In this world premiere by Lucy Thurber, Sally, played by Cassie Beck seeks comfort from the likes of John Brown, Harriet Tubman, Nat Turner even Timothy McVeigh, and yes, that last one is understandably a stretch, but so is the entire premise so you kind of have to suspend belief and go with the flow.”
“How does an enviably perfect, fortunate family cope with senseless tragedy? The Nash clan takes a rather curious route — song.”
