I love Mary Poppins show and would like to see her live so have got cheap Mary Poppins tickets from http://www.goodseattickets.com/Mary-Poppins
this show was excellent. i do admit covering my eyes as i was caught off guard by some lyrics, but it was delightful to be surprised in this day and age and not be struck by lightning in the process.
Interesting review. I totally agree with you that Emily did a wonderful job as Eve and Mama Noah. And I think Liz Kasun was absolutely inspiring as Yonah. Her expressive portrayal of the one person who truly overcame the mark of Cain was stunning. I happen to love the projections in the background. They added a depth to the entire production and the moving pictures during Generations tied it altogether. Great performance and highly recommended!
although i haven't seen this production, i have read the play, and i found the playwright's titular conceit much more effective than this reviewer did (and not a "gimmick" at all). mr. hoover also seems to have missed the more unique (and related) dimensions of this exploration of "familiar material." it's a story of two people who, for whatever reasons, are willing and able to acknowledge their outward, physical injuries (and even revel in doing so) but are unwilling or unable to express their inner, psychological wounds -- to make themselves vulnerable emotionally in a way that might allow them to connect more deeply. i didn't find the play particularly illuminating about that aspect of human behavior. but i did find it far more interesting (and truthful) than this reductive summary implies.
I thought the production was pretty great. There were some theatrical decisions I didn't agree with but I thought they were brave choices. I think this "review" is a little irresponsible with some of the information it is trying to pass as facts.
Yes, CMU did the first part of Angels in America, "Millennium Approaches" and has no plans to produce "Perestroika" but this is not uncommon. Many theater companies only do "Millennium Approaches" and not "Perestroika," and Kushner even says that they can be done as standalone plays.
As far as things that were cut, I don't really know what you are referring to. Have you read Angels In America? The only thing I noticed being cut was Scene 10, which isn't a pivotal scene, and surely doesn't add up to the 40 or minutes you say have been trashed.
Please inform me otherwise if I'm wrong.
Ted Hoover is a genius.
That's great...mmm, Can you plz recommend me any books/resources talking about those two plays?
Saw it with family... we all liked it... reviewer 100% right... except he didn't mention that Little Lake has a bar and serves dessert during intermission. Added Bonus!
A disappointing review. The play is highly nuanced, and perhaps the reviewer did not grow up in the 50's - I did. Harrison has captured brilliantly all the things that were skirted and tolerated in the 50's. It was not Nirvana, and if you were a thinking person, you were uncomfortable with the unspoken, the failure to respect the abilities and talents of women and African-Americans - Asians and Mexicans did not even exist. One small incorrect bit of language- in 1950+, you weren't "gay", you were "queer". This is an excellent play, and if you have seen it and for you it depicted a world in which you would like to live, why not go all the way - aim for Camelot - a true fantasy.
So much work went into this production. Yet so few came to the first showing. I do not get to interested in this opera thing. I did think it was great and I would attend again only had to go to Florida.. Rachel Myers is my Grandaugher so I guess that raised my interest just a little. I have seen most of these shows and I think this was the best.
That's "Sean Duggan" between Jordan and Garth.
We would like to give credit to Episode One's fantastic writers and apologize that they were not listed in this week's program (an editing mistake which has now been rectified).
Gayle Pazerski and Brad Stephenson wrote the Fake Breaking News segment.
R.N. Healey wrote the radioplay 'Blintz and the Ketchup People.'
Thank you, Gayle, Brad, and R.N.! You three did a wonderful job and contributed so much to Midnight Radio, we are lucky to be able to work with you.

This is my favorite of Victoria Stewart's plays, profound, deeply layered, visually arresting and complex yet accessible because of its humor and humanity. Michelle Pilecki really "gets it" in her thoughtful review.
I wish this review would comment more on the performances. I agree that there were certainly strange plot devices- and a few ridiculous numbers - but for the most part, I loved the show. I really enjoyed many of the musical numbers and found the actors performances wonderful (especially the trio of young actors). I honestly was moved to tears.
I have no offiliation with the Bald Theatre Company, but I applaud a non-professional company for bringing new musical theater to Pittsburgh rather than giving us another production of Annie. I personally can't wait to see what they do next.
This is quite possibly the most inept, shallow, and ignorant review I have ever read.
Sweeney Todd is wonderful film,I like it , and the costume~~~
NO! The superior play is "Afterplay", and "Yalta" missed the mark because the farcical characterization were not appropriate to the tone of the play. The actors in "Afterplay" were superb - complex subtext expertly articulated, like, indeed, Meryl Streep, and I would say, Stanely Tucci.
