It's a feast for body and soul on a summer night: a troupe of young, sexy, international performers begin whirling about the stage, turning somersaults, tossing eggs, telling stories and cooking up their latest recipe for love, laughter, and courage in what Poet Jack Gilbert called "the furnace of this world."

THEATER: BEDLAM’s SHAKESPEARE 2 WAYS

By | July 1st, 2016|Theater|0 Comments

It's BEDLAM out there and I am referring to the rambunctious and fantastically subversive theater troupe out of NYC who takes a hearty bite out of Shakespeare, or rather two bites of the same juicy apple. The Bard called his gender-bending comedy of love, manners, and female empowerment TWELFTH NIGHT OR WHAT YOU WILL. BEDLAM takes the title literally and [...]

THEATER: MATILDA

By | June 18th, 2016|Theater|0 Comments

I have a new favorite musical and it's called MATILDA THE MUSICAL!!! This literate, darkly funny, empowering, and bizarrely inventive Tony award-winner just hit the Boston Opera House in its first national tour-- and don't you dare miss it!  MATILDA THE MUSICAL is based on Roald Dahl's best-selling novel, and captures the writer's strange and shadowy sensibility, as [...]
