Theater review: 'The Amish Project'

Forgiving the unforgivable
On October 2, 2006, a lone gunman entered an Amish schoolhouse in Nickel Mines, Pennsylvania, and opened fire. "The Amish Project," a 2009 play by Jessica Dickey, is a fictional retelling of that true story -- a single-actor show that reimagines the events surrounding the day.

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 "Detroit '67" is not the most uplifting night out, but its strong performances, historical content, and a distinct relevance to current events make for an impactful experience.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.
