“A Christmas Carol- The Musical”

“A Christmas Carol- The Musical”

William Pullinsi, a master at making musicals get to the heart of those watching has put together a slick production with some solid performers taking on many roles. The key to doing this show is to have the right person playing Ebenezer Scrooge and for this role, who [Read More]

“Paulus”

“Paulus”

Over my years of covering Silk Road Rising, I have reported on many types of stories, mainly related to areas that follow the "Silk Road", dealing with ethnic situations, customs and of course racial profiling. Their current production, "Paulus" written in hebrew by Motti [Read More]

“The Nutcracker”

“The Nutcracker”

For decades and decades, families have thrilled to the amazing story of a special holiday treat- “The Nutcracker”. For many it is the ballet or the movie version that has thrilled little girls for two hundred years. The dazzling music of Tchaikovsky has now been [Read More]

“Detroit ’67”

“Detroit ’67”

Once again, I am at a point where I wish I could do my rating based on several factors instead on one rating for the entire production. If that were the cae, my review for Northlight Theatre's current production, "Detroit '67" would be the above for the play, but for the [Read More]

“Appropriate”

“Appropriate”

The home they are in is an old plantation in Arkansas and adjacent to the property a graveyard where generations of family members are buried. Beyond that plot is another grave yard, where the slaves were buried and these photos have some meaning with this area, but we [Read More]

“Hellcab”

“Hellcab”

The stories are told in brief snippets well choreographed by Cox ( who is quite familiar with swiftness of movement) and although the original production has far fewer actors playing more than one role, this ensemble, large and talented makes us see the different types of [Read More]

“Great Expectations”

“Great Expectations”

This production is unlike any other I have ever seen of this Dickens play in that it is much faster paced with far less actors and is what I might refer to as a "Theatrical experience"- one that is both educational and entertaining and allows the audience to see just how [Read More]

“Port Authority”

“Port Authority”

The set by Martin Andrew is a simple stage with some chairs and a bench and the lighting(Sarah Hughey) is very effective as is the sound(Andrew Hansen), the props (Julie Eberhardt) and the costumes Rachel Lariyz). This is not a show with glitz, but rather a show with heart [Read More]

“Elegy”

“Elegy”

"Elegy" a Chicago premier is now onstage at the Victory Gardens Biograph Theatre in the Richard Christiansen venue, upstairs. This is the smaller, more intimate space, with about 100 seats, give or take- a perfect space for an intimate story such as "Elegy" which tells the [Read More]

“Kate and Sam Are NOT Breaking Up”

“Kate and Sam Are NOT Breaking Up”

Their current production, "Kate and Sam Are NOT Breaking up" was conceived/written by Joel Kim Booster and his cast of four actors have added their touch along the route, from idea to opening night. I have seen some of their other works and find them to be a sharp, bright [Read More]
