The Woman in Black at CLC is Spooky Good

With it’s atmospheric lighting, sound effects, and grim story, The Woman in Black is a spooktacular way to start your Halloween weekend. CLC Theater Director Patrick Spradlin directs and acts in this play along with Brainerd area theater veteran Kevin Yeager. The two play the various characters that occupy the creepy story of a English countryside, a man who needs to purge himself of the story, and his friend who doesn’t know what he’s getting himself into by bringing those characters to life. The show is filled with ghostly images, eerie sound effects, and a story that sends a chill down your spine. I don’t know if it was the chilly theater, the first snowstorm of the season blowing in, or the great theatrical effects, but I actually felt my skin crawl during this show!

Review of Sam’s Son by Bucket Brigade Theater

Quote of the Day: Creating new work is demanding, exhausting, invigorating, and… at the end of it all… completely worth it. The main idea of the show is truth.What is it? What do we do with it?And what happens when we tell it, or withhold it? Jeremiah & Vanessa Gamble, co-creators of Sam’s Son, and co-founders of Bucket Brigade Theater.  I love supporting new work. When I read the description for this new musical, I was intrigued. It’s a new musical based on an old story, set in a new venue that was once an old church. I also noted that...

Review of Watch on the Rhine at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, MN

Quote of the Day: I cannot and will not cut my conscience to fit this year’s fashions. Lillian Hellman speaking in front of the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1947. Hellman was bold, opinionated, and seemingly unafraid of challenging beliefs, and willing to take action to raise the social conscience. She wrote Watch on the Rhine in 1940, as the United States was still trying to stay out of the war in Europe. The entire play has a strong voice, each character complex and searching, and most of all, they show us what it means to fight for a cause....
