A Brilliant Drama – “Five Presidents” – Review by Carol Moore

**** Highly Recommended **** I think everyone must have had the feeling sometime – you wish you could be a fly on the wall and see/hear what’s going on in that room.  With his brilliant drama, “Five Presidents”, Playwright Rick Cleveland has allowed all of us to get a glimpse of the things presidents and…

“King Hedley II” is a True Tragedy – Review by Carol Moore

*** Recommended *** “King Hedley II”, the ninth play (1985) in August Wilson’s Pittsburgh cycle.  You know that quote about “…the worst of times” – I think it applies to “King Hedley II”.  Supply side economics and the trickle down theory didn’t work very well in Pittsburgh’s black community. This bleak story, a true tragedy,…

“Hello Again” – Review by Jeffrey Leibham

***RECOMMENDED*** Arthur Schnitzler would probably be truly shocked to learn that his 1897 play “La Ronde” has influenced multiple generations of artists who have created a nearly countless amount of theatrical and cinematic output which are based upon it. The simple concept of his legendary work documents 10 random individuals who meet and physically connect,…

“The King’s Speech” is a Must-See – Review by Carol Moore

**** Highly Recommended **** “The King’s Speech” is a wonderful play. It’s a gripping but very human story of a man whose public persona – King of England – was larger than life. In his private life, he was an intensely proud and private man called Bertie, who never wanted to be king. Whatever you…

“The Color Purple” at Drury Lane – Review by Carol Moore

**** Recommended **** I have mixed feelings about “The Color Purple”.  On the one hand, the Drury Lane production was excellent; on the other, I’m not in love with the musical itself.  Alice Walker wrote a really powerful book, which Steven Spielburg made into a really powerful movie.  Why not a really powerful play? Maybe…

“Oslo” One of 2019’s Best Plays – Review by Carol Moore

**** Highly Recommended **** The gripping political drama “Oslo” is definitely in my top five plays of the year.  In fact, the improbable and complicated story of a series of secret meetings between the Israelis and the Palestinians in Oslo makes for a brilliant play!  Who knew secret meetings between diplomats – the epitome of…

“Dana H” – Review by Carol Moore

** Somewhat Recommended **  I’ve had a difficult time writing a review of “Dana H”, a performance I’d call ‘reality stage’.  It was obvious from the applause that some people in the audience really liked it but it definitely wasn’t the show for me.  The subject matter is so gruesome my friend Helen had nightmares. …

“Blue Stockings” – Review by Jeffrey Leibham

***RECOMMENDED*** Cambridge University, while largely recognized as one of the world’s best academic institutions for obtaining a solid education, has never really been considered a particularly progressive place of study. In the hundreds of years of its history (well over 700), it finally allowed women to enroll as students in 1869, with the foundation of…
