’70s Songs Served Up With Sparkle In New Musical

Theater: ‘Disaster!’ A ’70s Disaster Movie Musical

‘Disaster!” A ’70s Disaster Movie Musical,” now playing at the Warner Stage Company’s Nancy Marine Studio Theatre in Torrington, may be the ultimate “jukebox musical.” For Seth Rudetsky and Drew Geraci, this was a “concept,” and the ultimate production is best left in that amorphous category.

Albee Powerfully Performed at Unicorn Theatre

Theater: ‘The Goat or Who is Sylvia?’

The Berkshire Theatre Group production of Edward Albee’s “The Goat or Who is Sylvia” is a smash in more ways than one.
First, it is a complex, intriguing and challenging play brilliantly performed. Albee’s reframing of the classic tragedy, this time with laughter, amazement and pathos, is produced so well that the audience could hardly wait to leap to its feet in appreciative applause.

Theater

It’s been promoted as “the ultimate feel-good musical,” and if the response of the Warner Theatre audiences to Sharon Houk and Joe Guttadauro’s presentation of “Mamma Mia!” is any indicator, the echoing words of Muhammad Ali – “If you can do it, it ain’t braggin’”— ring true.

Hello Again, Mrs. Robinson

Theater

Making a play from a movie is daunting. Movies are slick. Seamless. Accomplished without fuss. Theater is clunky. Stuff has to be moved around between scenes, lights alter, the mechanics of the stage are hard to hide — and then there is intermission ( a real mood breaker.)
