Theater review: 'Detroit '67'

Theater review: 'Detroit '67'

While the story onstage may be fictional, the riots of 1967 were very real, and they are soberingly reminiscent of recent police brutality headlines. "Detroit '67" is not the most uplifting night out, but its strong performances, historical content, and a distinct relevance to current events make for an impactful experience.

Theater review: 'The Addams Family'

It's a kitschy, corny ride that immediately breaks the fourth wall, and the entire two-hour show is based on the premise of daughter Wednesday falling in love with a boy at school and inviting him and his parents to dinner.

Review: 'La Cage Aux Folles'

At its core, it's a flashy, an undeniably fun night out — albeit difficult to pull off without a talented male cast. Fortunately, Geva's cast is more than equipped to handle the high-heeled, leather- and feather-filled dance numbers.

Theater review: 'Guys and Dolls'

Overall, the show is an enjoyable, albeit predictable, night out at the theater. There’s always a place for classics in each theater season, and a hat tip to the past 70 years of Blackfriars Theatre with a musical from the era of its origin feels like a fitting choice.
