Theater Review: "A Christmas Carol"

David McBean, Tom Stephenson

Some people have to be scared into being good. Come to think of it, maybe all of us do, but at any rate Ebenezer Scrooge is definitely in that category. Like the Grinch, his heart was two sizes too small.

Scrooge’s heart started to shrink years ago when as a boy he was left all alone at his boarding school for the holidays.

Theater Review: “Seven Guitars” and “King Hedley II”

Laurence Brown, Grandison Phelps III, Yolanda Franklin

Dreams persist, though life is hardscrabble and largely disappointing for the people in August Wilson’s Pittsburgh Cycle, a group of ten plays progressing chronologically about the residents of the broken-down Hill District community where life sometimes hangs by a thread.

Theater Review: "Gypsy"

Allison Spratt Pearce and Linda Libby in "Gypsy."

I had never seen the musical “Gypsy” in any way, shape or form, but I did know that it was about a rather sad and controlling stage mother who takes her troupe of kids across the United States in the age of Vaudeville in search of fame and fortune before it disappeared forever.

L to R: Ro Boddie, Rachel, Esther Tate
