Ghost Town

Brilliantly written and performed. Laugh out loud funny at times; sad and shocking at others; Ghost Town is a balanced and vivid portrayal of the little talked about Anglocrisis in Cameroon. ... full review

THE BULLY PROBLEM

eric rapp · August 13, 2019 certified reviewer
Funny, delightful, and engaging. There's nothing wrong with being unabashedly positive and having a truly happy ending. I was genuinely surprised when it ended, because I thought it had only been 60 minutes rather than 90.... full review

Tattered Capes

matt ritchey · August 06, 2019 certified reviewer
A super-fun (pun intended, obviously) romantic action piece about insecurity and deep love. I didn't see TC until Extensions and I now understand why it won BEST DANCE AND PHYSICAL THEATER - the use of shadowplay and combat sequences may not have been crucial to the plot, but they WERE crucial to the production. TATTER CAPES had a cinematic vibe while employing tried-and-true theatrical conventions, adding up to a unique yet comfortably familiar experience - cast (especially Dixon, Mercedes, and ... full review

Danny and The Deep Blue Sea

david macdowell blue · August 04, 2019 certified reviewer
Contrary to all sorts of "common sense" you can quite practically put all sorts of spectacle onto the live stage. Sea battles, exorcisms, poisonings, gunshots, sword fights, etc. If you have the budget, dragons and falling chandeliers are not out of the question. But who cares without the human connection, the power of the human soul coming to terms with itself via contact with another human soul? Movies and video games cannot help but eclipse live theatre for spectacle. It can almost neve... full review

NO MORE TOYS

shanara sanders · July 26, 2019 certified reviewer
In the context of an all too familiar classroom gun hostage scenario, we are thrust into a jarring reality check of what it's like being a teen in urban America. Though you may initially root for the obvious protagonist(s), the deeper reflection is do you demonize or humanize the "apparent antagonist"? ... full review

Tattered Capes

victor sotomayor · July 25, 2019 certified reviewer
Tattered Capes is an epic story trapped in a 80 minute show. What could have easily been a more extensive TV series is here squeezed all its juice into one action-packed show. It deserves a second viewing.... full review

Bunny the Elf LIVE!

Batter Up! My Brain on Baseball

benjamin nicholson · July 24, 2019 certified reviewer
Batter Up! felt more like a conversation with a friend than a theatrical production, and I mean this in the best possible way. Brett's love for baseball makes listening to a chronological listing of all the teams that lost in the World Series both endearing and something to root for; seeing Brett dig back through his years of baseball knowledge to triumphantly retrieve and share is both a remarkable feat of investment but also engrossing to observe. Even if you don't love baseball, this show give... full review

Ayo does excellent character work. I enjoyed the unique way she told her story (at the airport) and how we traveled with her from destination to destination. Ayo is charming, comfortable on-stage, and so fun to watch. I loved the ending - I totally was NOT expecting it at all and I was so touched by her honesty ... full review
