The moral of Jen Silverman’s yarn is straightforward enough: we are in a country where self-transformation has become an end in itself, re-invention a default response to omnipresent banality.
Lyric Stage Company
A delicious, comforting gumbo of a Wiz with all the right ingredients for an upbeat, entertaining evening (or afternoon) at the theater.
There is much to love in this Lyric Stage Company production and I recommend it highly.
Road Show is unlikely to top anyone’s list of Sondheim favorites, it’s an often entertaining take on a quintessentially American story.
Hold These Truths is an invaluable reminder that alternative facts are not a new thing.
Spiro Veloudos and his talented cast has given us an evening in the theater when all that makes us human comes to the fore.
Beneath Barbecue’s jokes there’s little but a chic cynicism.
Edward Albee’s bitter masterwork is a tough nut for a company to crack as well as a hard play to watch.
Anne Washburn has a number of good ideas in this play, but the execution falls short.
The revue is a moving and hilarious mixture of reminiscences and stories about Sondheim’s life and a well-chosen sampler of his songs.
