Sondheim gets strong treatment from Theatre Unchained's "Company"

Published April 19, 2014

If God had meant for man to live alone, he would never have made Eve. That's the central theme of the Stephen Sondheim play "Company," currently running at Theatre Unchained through April 27. It is a delightful evening of song and theater, a good story and great music.

Rep's "History of Invulnerability" suffers from an identity crisis

Published April 13, 2014

Ever since he made his debut into the American pop culture world, Superman has been a character who made people wonder what he really was. After all, he's technically an alien disguised as a human.

"Zoo Story" visualizes a small story with big technology

Published April 8, 2014

Edward Albee's one-act drama "Zoo Story" is a fairly small production. After all, it features merely two actors, one set - a park - and one necessary set item, a park bench. For the upcoming staging at Marquette University, however, director Grace DeWolffe is working with much more than merely two guys and a bench. In fact, she's got $1.5 million worth of technology to bring her show to life.

However, if the satire is good-as in, really REALLY good-people may judge it at face ...

Rev. Ron reviews "Pacific Rim"

Although Guillermo del Toro says he came up with Pacific Rim as a way of introducing monster/mech battles to a new generation, I imagine that he was thinking about things like Godzilla, Gamera and Japanese anime like Voltron and Mobile Suit Gundam Wing and said, in a quiet voice, "I can do b...
