An A-for-effort production with some fine moments doesn’t fully realize the size and scale of the play.
At Bucks County Playhouse, Robert Harling’s formulaic script is made more enjoyable by a terrific cast.
Superb direction and a blue-chip cast in a beautiful, heartfelt, and visually glorious production.
THEATER REVIEW: In The Ballad of Trayvon Martin at New Freedom Theatre, History Looks All Too Current
As a play, Ballad has flaws; as a community experience, it’s overwhelming.
Lucas Hnath’s bold, beautifully nuanced play in a pitch-perfect production.
Considerable moment-to-moment power here is stronger than the big picture.
The energetic, high-wattage ensemble isn’t an optimal fit for this dark-tinged show about life on the margins.
A crowd pleasing, musically expert production of Donizetti’s delightful comedy closes the season in style.
