Re: “A choreographer confronts eating disorders

What is attractive? Poor choice of words especially due to the subject matter and society and those with this disease having frustrating standards to uphold...regardless, I'm intrigued to see the choreography/ piece.

Re: “A choreographer confronts eating disorders

I'm not sure what her attractiveness has to do with any of this, and certainly why it is more important to mention before her confidence...

Re: “An American Idiot for the Black Lives Matter era

Should be amazing. This group puts on great performances with a tremendous amount of energy and soul.

Re: “Venus in Fur at Pittsburgh Public Theater

Ted Hoover certainly makes me want to see this.

Re: “A conversation with comedian Louie Anderson

Listen to WTF with Marc Maron episode 715 feat. Louie Anderson.

The memories that were pulled from Louie in this interview were used in Maron's interview. I've always thought Maron and Sam Leonard were similarly capable interviewers.

Re: “Serpentine at Uncumber Theatrics

I'm currently immersed in Serpentine with a friend, and we've completely fallen down the rabbit hole on this one. In other words, we're loving it (if not obsessed).

Anyone can join the 'game' through June 11, and it runs until June 23.

Re: “Undercroft Opera reimagines Don Giovanni via Count Dracula

I know the level of outstanding talents putting this production together, from wonderful directors, singers, and musicians to beautiful costumes and stunning backdrop projections! The originality of much of the libretto in no way lessens the power of Mozart's music ("the music is king") as stage director Sarah Young emphasizes and audiences are in for such an engaging, not to be missed experience!

Re: “Assassins at Stage 62

I thought Chad Elder was undeservingly left out of this review. His character was spot on and never wavered. He was entertaining and intense. My absolute favorite part of the show.

Re: “The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas at McKeesport Little Theater

The production available for license from Samuel French was performed exactly as called for in the script by the appropriate characters including Miss Mona singing The Bus From Amarillo as the final song of the show. Perhaps the reviewer is confusing this with the retooled Anne Margaret national tour production which had a new song added and a different ending to accommodate Ms. Margaret's request.

Re: “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at barebones productions

if it is a proscenium stage...can you tell me where the "arch" is? is it that opening that leads back to the workshop? you do plays in the workshop and call it a proscenium stage?

here is the actual description from their website:
Theater Features

Thrust stage with “In the round” configuration possible.
Six-line set hemp fly system.
Steel grid with steel pipe hanging positions
Extensive package of theatrical lighting, sound and AV equipment.
Full stage black masking and a full stage cyclorama.
Multiple dressing rooms, restrooms, green room,wardrobe room and a rehearsal studio.
Public amenities include spacious lobby, wet bar, concession stand/box office with coat check,
Restrooms, and full wheelchair access.
Reception capacity up to 200.

Pretty sure the first line says it all.

Re: “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at barebones productions

hey folks, we do have moveable side seating banks here at the new hazlett that can create either a thrust or proscenium style stage depending on the production. for this production, it is a proscenium stage.

Re: “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at barebones productions

The proscenium is any part of the stage extending beyond the curtain. The Hazlett has a proscenium.
