Musical About Adolescent Life, Love, Laughter and Loss

Theater: ‘Spring Awakening’

‘Spring Awakening” currently in the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre in the Warner Theatre complex in Torrington is nothing if not an enigma.  
It’s a musical – such a good musical that it won eight Tony Awards including “Best Musical” in 2007.  But, it’s sobering. Among the subjects streamed through the play are suicide, abortion, incest, bigotry and bullying.

Anything Goes At the Sharon Playhouse

A new start at The Sharon Playhouse: No more Chekhov with three actors to each part. No more unique casting for hallowed musicals. No more “Death of a Salesman,” as one totally tone-deaf company scheduled years back to start the season.

No.

Funny and Smutty

Theater: ‘Young Frankenstein’

TheatreWorks has always been adventurous. This New Milford, Conn., theater company, which casts only non-equity actors, has staged quality straight plays and charming musicals requiring small casts. But now, like a child whose eyes are bigger than its stomach, they have taken on a show much too demanding for their limited resources.

Stripper Musical More than Skin Deep

Theater: ‘The Full Monty’

When considering “The Full Monty” now on stage at Warner Theatre in Torrington, one must begin with a very serious caution. Oh, sure … there’s the matter of tastefully handled male nudity. There’s the consideration of a few uses of the parlance employed by six unemployed Buffalo, N.Y. steel workers. And, of course, there’s the running sub-theme of male genitalia.
None of those is the point.

Music and McCourt at The Warner

Theater: ‘The Irish … and How They Got that Way’

There are several “truisms” that can be deftly applied to theater and film.  “Not every idea is a good idea” may be an application that applies to the production of Frank McCourt’s “The Irish … and How They Got That Way,” the musical review with monologue mash-ups currently on stage at the Nancy Marine Studio Theatre in Torrington’s Warner Theatre complex.
