Review of Indecent at the Guthrie Theater, winter 2018

Quote of the Day: A play has the power to change a life. Hugh Kennedy, actor who plays Shalom Asch and others in the Guthrie’s production of Indecent, a play with music by Paula Vogel. This play changed my life, says the character Lemml about Asch’s play God of Vengeance. He follows it through it’s first reading to the moment where it has the most power to transform. Paula Vogel herself describes the transforming experience of reading Asch’s play for the first time. Words and stories have power. When we see them brought to life in front of our eyes, in a single...

And Then There Were None, A Great Murder Mystery at PLCT

Quote of the Day: Very few of us are what we seem. Agatha Christie Pequot Lakes Community Theatre (PLCT) is presenting And Then There Were None, a classic murder mystery by the master herself, Agatha Christie. Christie is the most celebrated and prolific mystery writer in the English language. She wrote 93 books and 17 plays, including the longest-running play of modern day theater, The Mousetrap (I enjoyed playing the part of Mollie Ralston in a HS production several years ago). With her creations of two famous detectives, Hercule Poirot and Miss Marple, captivating settings and interesting characters, as well as adaptations...

Five Women Wearing the Same Dress at Brainerd Community Theater

Quote of the Day: Abandon the cultural myth that all female friendships must be bitchy, toxic, or competitive. This myth is like heels and purses – pretty but designed to SLOW women down. Roxane Gay Five Women Wearing the Same Dress written by Alan Ball, directed by Michael Sander, is the latest Brainerd Community Theatre Production in the intimate Dryden Theatre at Central Lakes College. It’s a look at women’s relationships which is more Roxane Gay than Jane Austen. While it has the same female friendship feel as Steel Magnolias, the subject matter is quite different. I felt a bit like...

Review of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, presented by Chameleon Theatre Circle

Quote of the Day: “I see it as an empty frame with something hideous in it waiting to be filled up with something new.” This is a moment that shows the motivation behind Picasso’s life as a young artist. Take the ugly sheep landscape painting, and paint over it with something beautiful, or what he felt was beautiful. Justin Cervantes, the actor playing Picasso, quoting one of his favorite lines and what it means to him. It was so fun watching someone I know performing in the Chameleon Theatre Circle‘s production of Picasso at the Lapin Agile, a play by Steve...
