“Smoke & Mirrors” – A Comedy Murder Mystery – Review by Carol Moore

**** Recommended **** Dunes Summer Theatre is one of my favorite summer destinations. Combine my love for this ‘gem in the woods’ with my love of murder mysteries, and I had a perfect afternoon recently. I really enjoyed their production of “Smoke & Mirrors”, a farcical murder mystery. Although I’m pretty good at figuring out…

“Dearly Departed” is a ‘Drop-Dead’ Funny Comedy

*** Recommended *** Beatnik Entertainment’s latest production, “Dearly Departed” is a drop-dead funny comedy (excuse the pun there, I couldn’t resist).

“Falsettos” – Review by Carol Moore

**** Recommended **** “Falsettos” is an unusual musical in that it defies classification. It’s about the angst-ridden lives of six New Yorkers, but it’s not annoying – at least most of the time. It has funny bits, but it’s not a comedy. It has really sad bits, but it’s not a tragedy. The entire script…

“The Adventures of Augie March” – Review by Carol Moore

*** Recommended *** I’ve had a hard time writing about Court Theatre’s production of “The Adventures of Augie March”.  If you haven’t read Saul Bellow’s 1953 coming-of-age novel about a man-child – and I haven’t – you’ll probably have a hard time with this adaptation.  It was difficult to keep track of the forty-some characters…
