REVIEW: OUTSIDE MULLINGER AT NORTHLIGHT THEATRE

The story is well written but its very talented cast is what truly makes this show a memorable delicacy

Northlight Theatre follows up the hard-hitting drama “White Guy on the Bus” with another extra-base hit with the charming comedy "Outside Mullinger". Set in the Midlands of Ireland, Artistic Director BJ Jones directs this humorous love story that, though mostly transparent in its direction, offers a handful of fun surprises. Outside Mullinger is written by Pulitzer, Oscar and Tony Award Winning author John Patrick Shanley (Moonstruck and Doubt). Needless to say, Shanley has done it…

REVIEW: THE FULL MONTY

You will laugh out loud, you will clap along, you will try to sing a long, you will tear up and you will root for the underdog

One can never have enough of imports from across the sea, “The Full Monty” based on the book by Terrence McNally which earned a 2001 Tony Away nomination and based on the movie by Fox of the same name, is no exception.  Currently being performed at the intimate space of Chicago's Theatre Wit, the audience becomes part of the struggle of the men in a town who are just trying to get by.

Featuring seven magicians from different corners of the world, The Illusionists: Witness the Impossible is an exciting show that, while catering to the younger audience with the likes of The Warrior, The Escapologist, The Manipulator and The Anti-Conjuror, also pleases…

First Wives Club: The Musical is a laugh out loud, feel good winner.

What's better than a good revenge story? How about a revenge comedy? Better yet, how about a revenge comedy musical? First Wives Club is all of that and then some. Partially driven by a Motown soundtrack, this glitzy musical taken from the 1996 film starring Goldie Hawn, Diane Keaton and Bette Midler presents many memorable numbers - some from hits we all know like “Reach Out…I’ll Be There” and “I Can’t Help Myself (Sugar Pie…

REVIEW: THE DIARY OF ANNE FRANK - WRITERS THEATRE

What Senior extracts from her actors is a perfect storm of the best and the worst of humanity

According to legend, when Albert Hackett and Frances Goodrich's Pulitzer Prize winning stage adaptation made its German premiere, audiences sat in a state of silent shock after the play ended. Nearly sixty years, countless productions, several films and hundreds of books about Anne Frank and the secret annex have made this story one of the most accessible pieces of Holocaust literature. In 1997, Wendy Kesselman adapted the original script for a Broadway revival that heightens…
