Geva stages world premiere of 'One House Over'

Catherine Trieschmann's new play explores themes of family, culture, and roots -- it's a sweet, hilarious story about immigration, love, and trusting strangers.

Blackfriars Theatre announces 2018-19 season

With each new season, Blackfriars Theatre seems to further test its own boundaries. In its 2017-18 season, the company set a mission to focus on more women artists and women-centered stories — to great success with its all-female "Twelfth Night," its holiday show, "Little Women," and the recent "When We Were Young and Unafraid."

Blackfriars’ ‘When We Were Young and Unafraid’ takes on domestic violence

It’s interesting to view the issues presented here not through lens of the #MeToo movement or #LeanIn, but during a time when Americans had less access to information and therefore, movements were even more action-oriented.

Review: 'An American in Paris' at the Auditorium Theater

Maybe it's a side effect of watching movies for a living, but I can't help seeing ways the Hollywood franchise mindset has wormed its way into other art forms -- Broadway being no exception. The prequel, sequel, and spin-off mentality of modern entertainment has led to a compulsive need to explain everything and provide backstory even where none is necessary.

Geva announces 2018-19 season

Geva Theatre Center unveiled its 2018-19 season this afternoon, a lineup that again includes a popular older favorite and several new works. In the season, Geva continues its commitment to staging premieres of new works and to multi-cultural works.

RBTL announces 2018-19 season

Hundreds of attendees made their way through slushy streets and windy snow Wednesday night for the Rochester Broadway Theatre League's 2018-19 season announcement. All seven of the shows are Broadway crowd-pleasers; the sort of shows most theater-loving folks have already seen in New York City.

Like the corners of her mind

To dub Barbra Streisand a household name might be an understatement. She is one of the best-selling vocal artists in history, a stage and film actress, and one of few entertainers to be awarded multiple Emmy, Grammy, Oscar, and Tony Awards (a highly coveted status referred to in show biz as an 'EGOT').

Theater review: 'The Diary of Anne Frank' at Geva

There's a great responsibility and gravity that comes along with staging (and reviewing) a show like "The Diary of Anne Frank." The Holocaust wasn't even a hundred years ago, but feels at once farther and closer, in many ways.
