"It may not be a perfect Beauty and the Beast, but if you're feeling that itch for Disney pomp buttoned with wedding bells and a confetti shower, this will certainly scratch it." Read Hayley Levitt's full review here.
"Unapologetically theatrical, [Handbagged] offers a primer on British politics in the '80s, as well as a probing look into the way personal relationships can color global events." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
"There's a kind of offhand poetry in [playwright James] McLure's implicit equation of the destruction of a classic car to lost American innocence, and of a tainted marriage to punctured masculinity. Lone Star may feel slight in the moment, but only in retrospect does the inner pathos of the material become apparent." Read Kenji Fujishima's full review here.
"In the hands of a great director and performers, [Much Ado About Nothing] soars. That is the case more often than not with Kenny Leon's production for Shakespeare in the Park, which transposes this story of high jinks in Renaissance Sicily to modern America." Read Zachary Stewart's full review here.
"[Sutton] Foster's latest Carlyle show is a rare opportunity to see this bona fide Broadway star up close and personal. My only wish is that it didn't have to end."
