Westward ho!

BETC gets ambitious

By Gary Zeidner
When is a meditation still water. The backstage wall holds a really an illustration? collection of white rectangles of various Though I don’t believe sizes. Reminiscent of the memorable set playwright Anthony for the Avenue Theatre’s 2004 production of Metamorphoses, Ambition Facing.

Just say, “D’oh!”

Even ‘The Simpsons’ can’t save Catamounts’ latest

By Gary Zeidner
Remember back in elementary school when you could get an A for effort? The end result of your effort might have earned a C, or even a D, but the dedication and hard work you put in shone through, and your teacher would recognize that with an appreciative — if relatively meaningless — “A for effort.”

The church basement ladies are back

‘A Second Helping’ proves worth a taste or two

By Gary Zeidner
Vivian (Barb Reeves) represents the old guard. The most old-fashioned of the group, she fears the iniquities of “The Cities” — the hotbeds of sin that are Minneapolis and St. Paul. She’s so uptight it’s a wonder she gets any sleep at night. Some years earlier, Vivian ceded her role as leader of the church basement ladies to Karin (Tracy Warren).

Opposites attract

Miners Alley goes old school with Simon’s ‘Odd Couple’

By Gary Zeidner
Given the myriad ways in which other directors have put their stamp on this ageless tale — from turning Felix and Oscar into women to utilizing the Kabuki form — director Robert Kramer’s decision to stage this Miners Alley Playhouse production in the play’s original 1965 New York City setting is inspired and heightens both the many similarities and striking juxtapositions between then and now.

Aside from some bickering between Shakespeare and his frenemy, Will Kemp, regarding the ratio of buffoonery to solemnity appropriate for quality theatre, the only real conflict in William Shakespeare’s Land of the Dead.
