New York Review: “Broken Story” at the Gene Frankel Theatre

New York Review: “Broken Story” at the Gene Frankel Theatre

‘“Broken Story” has many interesting aspects and is decently acted aside from a few over the top moments here and there, but it feels, much like the murder at the beginning of the story, unfinished. I hope that this story is explored further and I look forward to seeing it develop even more.”

NYC Review: “2020: A Fantasy” at Shetler Studios

NYC Review: “2020: A Fantasy” at Shetler Studios

"“2020” was a show that had a lot of promise and began with many great ideas but failed to go beyond what we see on the news. Clever lines and good ideas were lost amongst the multitude of things it wanted to say. “2020” covered a lot of topics, but again, I ask the question: What about them?”

NYC Review: “Of the woman came the beginning of sin and through her we all die” at Normal Ave

NYC Review: “Of the woman came the beginning of sin and through her we all die” at Normal Ave

“The play gives us multiple perspectives from these women and allows us to work out all of the ideas given to us for ourselves. There is no one answer that we are led to and this results in the audience having to think it out for themselves, and really critically evaluating what they just saw, which is exactly what a play like this wants to do.”

Review: “In the Penal Colony” at New York Theater Workshop’s 4th Street Theater

“In the Penal Colony” is not a play that you can fully absorb minutes after the curtain closes. This is a play that sinks in to your skin and stays there. A play that you feel before you even know why. Twenty-four hours after seeing the show, there are still things that I am working to uncover.

Review: “Romeo and Juliet” at Shakespeare in the Parking Lot

Review: “Romeo and Juliet” at Shakespeare in the Parking Lot

Rain could not stop this performance of one of Shakespeare’s most well-known plays. The crowd gathered, umbrellas raised, to see Shakespeare in the Parking Lot’s production of “Romeo and Juliet”. This very enjoyable production took the classic story and gave it an 80s/90s spin, with costumes from those decades bringing the characters even closer to reality and allowing us to relate to them more than we already could.

Review: “Three Musketeers 1941” at A.R.T/New York Theaters

“Three Musketeers 1941” was an exhilarating theatrical experience that brought classic characters into a more relevant time period without making them feel too modernized. It unflinchingly portrays the World War II era and gives us characters we can no doubt relate to as well as hope for.

Review: “Carcass” at Shetler Studios

Review: “Carcass” at Shetler Studios

“Carcass” is a new play by Eddie Vernovsky that chronicles the story of Eric (Vernovsky),  a depressed young man who is struggling to find his purpose in life. This is made all the more difficult by a girlfriend he doesn’t really like and a family that pushes every button and crosses every line. “Carcass” had the potential to be a great family/relationship drama about a broken man searching to be whole, but unfortunately, very few of the characters felt fleshed out enough to where I wanted to know what happened to them, and the spiritual journey of Eric felt very simplified.
