Theater: ‘NEWSIES’

They sing.  They dance.  They fly through the air in acrobatic turns.  The “newsies,” the rough, tough street kids who sold newspapers in turn of 20th Century New York have come to the Warner Theatre with energy to burn.

Illusions and Hope in Tennessee Williams’ Play

Theater: ‘The Glass Menagerie’

Memory is a gravitational force in Julianne Boyd’s superb production of “The Glass Menagerie” now playing at Barrington Stage Company.

 Lose a child, and the pain is sustained for a lifetime.
Such is the fate of Katherine Gerard, a lonely, embittered woman who lost her son, Andre, 20 years ago to the horror of AIDS, and has finally mustered the courage to meet, face to face, with her son’s former lover.

So Good It’s Almost Patsy Cline

Theater

Sharon Playhouse’s production of “Always... Patsy Cline” is a sure-fire hit that will send you out of the theater humming — maybe singing — the tunes that made Cline the first country crossover-into-pop recording artist. Written in 1988 by Ted Swindley, 25 years after Cline’s death, the play is drawn from the memories of Louise Seger, Cline’s pen pal.

‘As You Like It’ Outdoors at Shakespeare & Co.

Theater

William Shakespeare had a great talent for intermingling comedies and tragedies as he created the monumental body of work that consists of 37 plays. “As You Like It,” currently in the Roman Garden Theatre at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, Mass., was written shortly after the knee-slapper “Julius Caesar” and right before that other laugh-riot, “Hamlet.”

‘West Side Story’ Electrifies at Barrington Stage

Let’s begin with the premise so that, if your schedule is too compromised today, you don’t have to spend excessive time reading. “West Side Story” running at Barrington Stage Company in Pittsfield, Mass. through September 1 could well be the finest production that has graced the Tri-state area in years.

‘Homebody’ Soars in Ancram

Theater

In a part of the world where summer theater means snappy musicals, occasional  (and generally futile) experiments, famed mysteries and earnest Russian  treasures on a bare stage, the Ancram Opera House leaps into tricky territory with Tony Kushner’s “Homebody,” a one-person performance about history, disorder and magic in beleaguered Afghanistan.
