HEISENBERG

Brilliance from playwright, director and actors, it's what great live theatre is all about. Uncertainty from moment to moment is the answer.

A Harmony Boys Christmas

A slickly produced and harmonious sounding musical satire with consistently in.your.face political incorrectness. I liked it and admired the talent, but next Christmas I'll go with the silliness of Plaid Tidings.

Oklahoma!

One of the best productions of Oklahoma! I have seen, re.imagined for the 21st century. Julia Aks, Zach Ford, Rufus Bonds, Jr., Tom Berklund and Kelley Dorney lead a superb ensemble under the brilliant direction of T.J. Dawson.

Gaines was born to play this role. Crawford has unbelievable strength and makes Aldonza her very own creation. Top of the line production for director Casale and La Mirada Theatre for the Performing Arts.

Although not a favorite, La Ronde offers lots of different sexual encounters especially in Michael John LaChuisa\'s musical version that covers every decade of the 20th century...its music is varied and Michael Mullen\'s costumes are an eye-popping treat.
