“How We Got On”

“How We Got On”

it is far more about relationship building and friendship. Think back to your youth! The dreams you had but those around you kept putting obstacles in your way. Your parents were to busy, your teachers only wanted you to do your work. It was your friends who encouraged you [Read More]

“Old Jews Telling Jokes”

“Old Jews Telling Jokes”

I am pretty sure that there will be cast changes along the way, so my suggestion is to hurry up and see this cast- the chemistry is delightful and the two younger "Jews" ( as we will call them) Dara and Alex fit to perfection. Again, Wegandt is always a delight to watch, [Read More]

“BROADSWORD”

“BROADSWORD”

Under the slick direction of Keira Fromm, though, the break in the action is not one that lets the story and the characters get away from us. The story starts out before a red curtain, when the "man in white" ( sharply played by Gabriel Franken) speaks to the audience as if [Read More]

“The Book of Spectres” reviewed by Michael Horn

“The Book of Spectres”   reviewed by Michael Horn

the inventively staged stories are simultaneously charming and bone-chilling, delightful and disturbing. “The Book of Spectres” is an ambitious project, but Evan Chung’s translation and adaptation provide a solid base from which to launch the production. Director [Read More]

“4000 Miles”

“4000 Miles”

I know we have seen many "coming of age" stories on our stages and of course in films, but I found this one to be very honest and real in building , or should I say, rebuilding a relationship where two lonely relatives find that having each other is the one positive force [Read More]

“It’s All-Right To Have a Good Time- The Story of Curtis Mayfield”

“It’s All-Right To Have a Good Time- The Story of Curtis Mayfield”

For those of you who are regulars at Black Ensemble, you know that this is an audience participation venue- yes, they clap their hands, stamp their feet, yell out a "you go girl" , or other sayings, but guess what, they never disturb the other audience members, In fact, one [Read More]

“Pullman Porter Blues”

“Pullman Porter Blues”

The time of this play, written by Cheryl L. West , is 1937 and the train , The Panama Limited, is pulling out of Chicago on its way to New Orleans. It is the night that young Joe Louis will take on James Braddock for the Heavyweight Championship of The World ( prize [Read More]

“Signs of Life”

“Signs of Life”

The cast, directed by Lisa Portes is energetic with some wonderful voices, but it is the overall material that detracts from their talent, which I would give . Some of the cast members were part of this show in other performances and others, local actors have been added to [Read More]

“The Trip To Bountiful”

“The Trip To Bountiful”

The Raven Theatre, as always offers quality theater at affordable prices and their stage, intimate "storefront" types, allow the audience the intimacy that makes the experience memorable. Their current production is one that played at The Goodman several seasons ago when [Read More]

“Route 66″ reviewed by Michael Horn

“Route 66″ reviewed by Michael Horn

The story is bound together by an interesting set which duplicates an old Texaco Gas Station, pumps in the front and two garage doors on the side. Cleverly, behind door number 1 is the band and behind door number 2 is a billboard that changes with each stop the boys make [Read More]
